Functional URLs in photo caption field

Post Mon Jan 26, 2015 4:42 am


In describing my photos within the caption field, I sometimes wish to include a URL for related information posted on-line at other websites. I noticed that the URLs are clickable, but there must be some hidden code that makes them non-functional. What can I do to successively link to an external web-page from within the caption??? Thanks, Nick.

The answer to this one is pretty mysterious, but if I paste a complete URL into a caption and place a left parenthesis '(' or a left angle bracket '<' in front of said URL, it appears to work, the URL becomes an active link! You do not need a closing symbol. There may be other things that work.

You can also do a full html encoded link <a href="http://full.url.address"> Text that appears in link </a> (Now let's see if that blows up when I post it!)

Note that in both cases the actual address is the text with no additional codes in it. With Firefox, the text appears in the address bar at the top. When you place the cursor in that space, the text is highlighted. Control-C to copy, Control-V to paste into the caption then add the surrounding codes. (Assuming Windoze here, not intimately familiar with others.) Although with Firefox the highlighted string does not show the beginning http:// portion, it is picked up and should appear in the pasted result.

Hope that helps,

Thanks. The latter worked (full html) but not the < or (. - Nick
