convert html code to a URL
« on: December 03, 2010, 03:37:53 PM »
I didn't have any luck googling this so thought I would ask here.  I have put up an online survey for our school and I am wanting to post a link on our website (Joomla) to it.  The site gave me the html code to put in but as I understand it, Joomla doesn't handle code very well.  So I need to convert it to a URL without using Dreamweaver or something like that.

Where and what do I use to do to accomplish this with??

the code starts with <a href="http: and so on and so on.

The target link is everything that is between the quotes following <a href=

Pop that url in your browser and it should take you to the page you want.

Thanks April.  I did finally figure that out a few minutes ago.  I went to this site and then when I pasted it into notepad I then noticed that what was in quotes was what I needed.

Why is something like the OP so difficult to find if you don't know???  :(

Because you didn't go here first? http://www.w3schools.com

By the way...if you ever need something you can pop an HTML code snip in and click a button to see/tweak the results, Fuzzpad is always a good quick & easy online tool to use.
