Holly's Helpful Hints: Embedding A URL In A Discussion Post

If you've looked at the Blackbaud Community homepage recently, you'll notice the three words: "Learn. Engage. Connect." These words represent our goals for community members. We want the community to be a place where you can access knowledge. We want you to ask questions of and provide answers to your fellow community members. And we want you to be able connect with other nonprofit professionals to help you build your professional network.

One of the most helpful tools for helping you to Learn, Engage, and Connect in the Community is sharing helpful resources, conversations, or even people by embedding a URL in your discussion post.

Here's how it works:

1. Type out the sentence as you wish it to appear in the post. For example:
a9a5c1b3d178bf8ec5ab1b034ece86d8-origina

2. Select the text you wish to hyperlink.
c5c3215571a6722ed150eadc8aa511bf-origina

3. Click on the "Link" icon in the text editor.
1af5364f53189a50074d6145d82a83d1-origina

4. Paste your link into the URL box. Hit OK.
948dfeeae9de3bfc1a77fb792a1c1be4-origina

Now that your text is hyperlinked, it's time to share, fellow Community members! Share ideas! Share connections! Share resources!

Hit us up in the Best Practices discussion with links to the resources, conversations, or even people who help you be a rockstar.
