The html to add a link into your text is as follows. This will allow you to add a link without showing the actual URL. You add this link into your petition text. Put the desired URL in the URL space and the text you wish to show up in blue in the next space (below it says "sign this petition to help protect The Great Bear Rainforest"

http://www.care2.com/news/member/100330942/2952276


as for the hyper links to do one you first start with


<a href="


then add the link of whatever you want


immediately after the link add


">


then give a space after >


then write.....PETITION FOR TROY DAVIS


or whatever else you want to explain what the hyper link goes to

Hi Eco!

 

First? Open a youtube account.

 

Then, find the video you want and copy the URL from the top of the page on the address bar.

 

To post in a group at Care2, first type the word- video: (dont forget the semi colon)- right after tying the word video: place the URL (no spaces inbetween)

like this-

 

video:urlwithNOspaces

 

Press preview to make sure it appears, and then post reply.

 

For your profile page, same thing, but WITHOUT the word video:. Just paste the URL from the address bar.

 

 

Go ahead and practice it here... if it doesnt work, we can just delete it.

HOW TO... promote your animal information videos via Care2 personal profile notice board.


HOW TO... promote your animal information videos via Care2 personal profile notice board.
Pastor Bruce Way is a very kind genuine well loved, helpful person.  He has this amazing Care2. personal profile with videos to show his passion for the animals and animal information especially regarding the sea.  
Here is his link to his awesome display of videos above links and below.
Mar 17, 2008 ... Pastor Bruce Way: GOOD PERSON I LIKE DOING THINGS FOR OTHERS most of all i like praying for the sick and needy and seeing people heal our ...

If you have a prayer needed for the animals etc.

Please feel free to contact:

 

godprayer@care2.com  


I was very lucky to link up on Care2 on the friends links, and Pastor Bruce Way tried to patiently show me how to put up the videos.  I did not succeed, because I was so new and felt too silly to say 'I do not understand how to...do this or that etc on the computer. Please can you show me how you put all those awesome videos on your notice board.'  By the time I managed to speak to Pastor Bruce Way, he had been away for a whole year before I had the chance again to admit my computer ignorance.

He has been so very very kind and patient, that I look up to him as one of my handful of outstanding heros for patience and kindness.

                        Anyone posting graphics:

                         

                        You may want to post them in your care2 album. It will make it alot easier!

                        I haven't used my album a ton so I am not an expert and if someone knows a different way let me know lol

                        But you can just go to your album right click and hit copy on the image and then paste it in your post. It will be linked back to your album!

                        But when I did it, it left an icky blue border around it. There are two ways to get rid of it.

                        1. hit the basic editor button below. Go to where it says <a href="url to your album"><img src="url to image" width="some number" /></a>

                        Type in border="0" right after the width (leaving a space before it and and after ofcourse)

                        so it would then be:


                        <a href="url to your album"><img src="url to image" width="some number" border="0" /></a>

                        then hit preview and the border should be gone! If you need to add more text just hit edit again and it will be back to the editor with the font and stuff And the border will still be gone!

                        2. or right click on the image and where it says url/address copy the url.

                        Come here and go to the image thingy and put that in make sure you put border 0. Then highlight the image with your mouse. Go to the link button and type in the url to your album or the group if you prefer.

                        Easy!

                        If the image is clickable back to an album or the group then you do not need to give us a link back

                        ONE WAY TO POST IMAGES IN TESTIMONIAL MESSAGES


                        The testimonial window only accepts HTML code.


                        The HTML for an image starts with this img src


                        ONE WAY TO OBTAIN HTML...


                        ... Go to this page [photobucket page] and hover mouse over one of the images. You'll see a pop-up with two parts:


                        1) direct link
                        2) HTML code.


                        If you click on the HTML code Photobucket should copy it for you. If not, you'll have to *copy it yourself.


                        But you only need the middle part...


                        The HTML code for a Photobucket image starts like this: a href=
                        and has < at the beginning and > at the end. You only need the "image" part that's in the middle for testimonial...


                        img src= (up to and including) border="0"
                        with < at the beginning and > at the end.


                        Sort it out by doing a TEST RUN in a regular message box (e.g. this message box I'm typing in now.)


                        Switch the message box over to HTML (see toolbar)


                        *Paste the HTML code into the HTML box

                        Next click 'Update' so the message box becomes normal again.
                        Your picture should be there.


                        If it looks good, then you can use that code in the testimonial box.


                        Possible problem:
                        Lengthy code might have too many characters for the testimonial box.


                        * If you don't know how to 'copy' and 'paste' yet, let me know by replying to this, and I'll tell you next time.


                        Good luck

                         I see so many of my other friends here too. Jenny is very helpful. I printed out Instructions, from Care2 Feedback and Suggestions, how to Embed a Video at the Job Center as I don't have a printer. So when I have time I can sit in front of my computer  and try to do it. Goodnight

                        How to save a picture for news articles etc.
                        2 years ago

                        Simply find picture you want.

                         

                        Copy and right click. A menu should show up and you choose save to..

                         

                        A box will show up and you must name the picture so you can have it saved. After you have named it, press save.

                         

                        When you want to post to new for example, you click on brows in the news posting section whilst posting news.

                        How to make a link become active when posting to messages etc.

                        To make a link live in emails and messages, is very important and also you are more likely to get a better result of what you hope to achieve. Eg, please sign my petiton. And you have a live link in the message, you get more people responding usually.

                        It is very simple to do. All you need to do is have your link you want ready. At the end of the link put your curser arrow on the very end of the link without any spaces, and press the space bar once or press the return key. Some times you will not see it live, but when it is sent, the link becomes live and often changes from black text to a red or blue one.

                        You can test this by sending yourself a email or message eg on Care2.com but that is assuming your messaging is working here.

                        Good luck.

                        Thank you our beloved friend Dianne.

                        I keep this written down beside my computer,and follow it step by step...

                        If not done correctly it will not post or activate,I just keep trying till it works

                         

                         

                         

                        Google Translate.
                        2 years ago

                        Google Translate.

                        Some times we want to translate something or a web site and so on. You can translate using google translate, but please remember that it is NOT spot on perfection and there will be some mistakes in translation, so please do aware.

                         

                        First go to google translate, get your link and paste it in the translation box.

                         

                        Check to see what language you have or even better... click onto 'detect language' and then look to the oposite side of the screen in Google Translate, and then click on the language you wish to speak. eg. English.

                         

                        Sadly it won't detect and translate animal language to human languages, which is a absolutely awful shame that it can not translate everything...perhaps one day.

                         

                        Any how, you can put links and all kinds of stuff, and often Google Translate will translate for you.

                         

                        Here is the link to google translate.

                         

                        http://translate.google.com/

                        THEN NAME OF WHAT YOU WANT ACTIVATED

                        If not done correctly it will not post or activate,I just keep trying till it works (Thank you lots Dianne.)



                        http://translate.google.com/

                        Copy the Google Translate link as shown above for reference.

                         

                        Then put the live links format in below as shown,

                         

                        THEN NAME OF WHAT YOU WANT ACTIVATED

                        then copy and paste the Google Translate link into the live link format and explanation to others on what to do. When the link is 'post reply' in the news, it makes the link live. Remember to copy and paste the additional link you want to help others translate. Eg. a petition link to sign about the poor dogs in Spain etc.

                         

                         

                        Here is an example below.


                        Please copy the link and then click onto google translate link. Paste the link you want into the box, and click translate. Here is the Google translate link. Make sure you click on detect language after you have pasted your link into the box and before you click translate. http://translate.google.com/



                        Here is the original petition link.

                        http://www.avaaz.org/fr/petition/Linterdiction_de_la_chasse_avec_les_Levriers_en_Espagne/

                        To translate, please copy and paste. However to sign, you must sign the non translated original petiton please.

                        Please Refare to below to what it looked like in the news and also press this link for a real example.

                        P.s On Care2 news, you can not simply put a link there and hope it becomes a live link, where you can click on it and by doing so, it will take you to the intended place. So this is why we must use the formula for a live link.
