Marking up links

After working through this section, you should be able to:

  • Mark up a link.

The pattern for marking up links is as follows:

  • In the text where the link appears, the opening {{>

  • Immediately afterwards, the URL of the link

  • A space, followed by the text that should appear

  • The closing }}.

If the linked text is the link itself, simply repeat it: once as the URL, and once as the text.

The link should never include spaces, and should always start with https:// or http://if it's external.
