Live Clickable Links - HTML Text Formating Part 2

We saw an intro on posts coding in bbPress powered boards here: Basic HTML Markup for bbPress

Then we started learning about the coding in the first part: HTML to Format Text Part 1

From this part we will start learning the use of tags one by one.

Let's start with the first value: the "a", it's for creating live clickable links in bbPress forums & in HTML in general, it would be the equivalent of the [url] tag we saw in bbCode.

The [url] tag as we saw, has a simple & an advanced use, but the <a> tag is used in one & only way.

The tag has to include the target URL & to wrap the text meant to be clickable, let's see an example in two steps, to make it simple, we'll link the word Google to to google.com

First, we'll wrap the word with the <a> tag (notice how the tag wraps the word & the forward slash "/" in the 2nd part):

<a>Google</a>

Not hard to guess that the browser who is going to decipher the code won't be able to link the word to anything as we didn't tell it to which address (or URL) to link, the link should be added in the starting tag after a href= code & between two quotation marks ", here's how it should look like:

<a href="http://www.google.com/">Google</a>

The final result would be:

Google
