HTML Web Links

To add a link we need to use an <a> anchor tag

<a href="https://futurelearn.com">The FutureLearn website</a>
  • The a stands for anchor tag
  • href is an attribute which defines a target. (In this case a URL)
  • Attributes should be specified within the opening of a tag (but not the closing)

You might get unexpected results if you omit the https:// or http://, the protocol, at the beginning of the web address. After making a link, click it to make sure it is sending you where you wanted it to.
