The Knot's Wedding Website

I'm apologizing in advance, since I am new to this.  I have searched high & low..but can't find anything about the wedding website that The Knot provides for you.  
Instead of showing www.coastlineinn.com  I want the actual link to look like 'Coastline Convention Center'.

So, it would read:
"We're having our wedding at the Coastline Convention Center, and reception immediately following"  
I want "Coastline Convention Center" to be the link to the website.

Help!  I don't really know the lingo either--Is it HTML?  I've searched online and tried typing it all out, with no luck.

Thank you in advance!!!

Re: The Knot's Wedding Website

  • I didn't use the knot for our wedding website, so I'm of absolutely no help.  If you don't get any replies, I can further inquire for you.  Sorry :)

    Thank you for the response!!  I can't seem to get it to work & I've already ordered business cards with the website address on them for our out of town guests, since the majority of them are coming from out of state!  And, I'm stuffing my invites tonight! (With the business cards inside!)

    Try this The tags used to produce links are the <a> and </a>.

    The <a> tells where the link should start and the </a> indicates where the link ends.

    Everything between these two will work as a link.

    The target of the link is added to the <a> tag using
    the href="http://www.whateverpage.com" setting.

    The example below shows how to make the word here work as a link to yahoo.


    Click <a href="http://www.yahoo.com&quot;&gt;here</a> to go to yahoo.


    You simply:
    • Specify the target in the <a href=" ">.
    • Then add the text that should work as a link.
    • Finally add an </a> tag to indicate where the link ends.

    So it would be like this:

    <a href="http://www.nccoastalevents.com/">The Coastline Convention Center</a>

    If that is so, I've done that & it doesn't show up.  Maybe it doesn't allow it for some reason?  Or, am I typing it wrong still?
  • How specifically is it showing up? Are the words not there at all, or are you seeing the <a href=" jargin as well?


  • URLs

    When you make a link, you are making colored text or even a graphic (talked about later). When somebody clicks on this text, it will take them to another web page, or possibly a certain section of a web page. Let's say that you wanted to make a link from your web page, to Yahoo!. The URL of Yahoo! is:
    http://www.yahoo.com
    To do this, you would type:

    <A href="http://www.yahoo.com&quot;&gt;What ever text that you want to be colored goes here</A>



    Thats teh only thing I could find . You no  what I wasn't even thinking. You might not be able to do it . I was trying to link Google Map to my website and the knot website wont allow you to do it . I had to copy and paste the link in . So you might not be able to .

    Heres my site ( its not finished yet ).

    If you click guest information and look at the bottom of the hotel list it says  Click below if you want to see google map .

  • I just went to look at the edit page for my wedding website and found that you might be placing the HTML code in what they call the WYSIWYG section (it looks like Word with the icons at the top).

    If you are seeing the <a href=" jargin when you post the HTML, click the "source" button at the top left of the editting area. That will pull up your page in HTML format. You will see things like <p />Hello></p> and stuff. Drop your HTML here and it should work.

    Let us know if this doesn't work as well.

    Yes!  All the <a href="  mess is showing up. :\

    I'm beginning to think it's just The Knot.  Bummer....


  • Clicking the "source" button and dropping the HTML in there should work for you then. You can click the button again to go back to the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editting style.
  • Thanks Birdie . At least now on my page the people can click the  url instead of copying and pasting it .

  • Your welcome!

    You might be able to get fancy and steal the embed code from Google and drop that into the Source area. That would make the map show up on the page. It might work!

    sarah,

    Try dropping this into the source area instead and see what it looks like:

    <iframe width="425" height="350" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://maps.google.com/maps?oe=utf-8&amp;client=firefox-a&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;q=hotels+by+malabar+road+palm+bay+florida&amp;fb=1&amp;gl=us&amp;hq=hotels+by&amp;hnear=Malabar+Rd,+Palm+Bay,+Brevard,+Florida+32909&amp;view=text&amp;ei=3f8PTKriBIL78Aar4uGaCQ&amp;ved=0CCQQtQMwAA&amp;ll=28.037622,-80.614764&amp;spn=0.096817,0.09813&amp;output=embed"></iframe><br /><small /><a href="http://maps.google.com/maps?oe=utf-8&amp;client=firefox-a&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;q=hotels+by+malabar+road+palm+bay+florida&amp;fb=1&amp;gl=us&amp;hq=hotels+by&amp;hnear=Malabar+Rd,+Palm+Bay,+Brevard,+Florida+32909&amp;view=text&amp;ei=3f8PTKriBIL78Aar4uGaCQ&amp;ved=0CCQQtQMwAA&amp;ll=28.037622,-80.614764&amp;spn=0.096817,0.09813&amp;source=embed" style="color:#0000FF;text-align:left">View Larger Map</a></small>
