Links within blog posts on WP are not active. Need Advice

All,
When I submit a blog post and include what I think is a link to another blog post the link is not active.

See this example:

http://pimcoach.com/m...­

Two links that are not highlighted or live are contained within this post.

Any suggestions? Please advise.

Regards,
Peter

Peter go to your tool area , where it has bold and italics. There should be a paperclip where you can add a link. A pop up will come up and ask for the url. Enter the url you want and that will make it a live link.

I hope this helps

Thank you. Your recommendation works well. Will need to modify all past posts. I guess this is what "Linking" is all about. It is not intuitive.

Thank you!

Thanks Justin!

Yeah, programmers just think a little "chain-fence/paper-clip-py" link icon makes sense to everyone.

If you hover your mouse over those buttons in the Post page, you should see a hovering text message at the mouse cursor with a clearer explanation.

Best,
Tony

There is so much win in this statement.
