Solved Links don't work on HTML page

Post by firestormX19 on September 10th 2011, 11:19 pm

Hello I made a blank page and find a layout on W3 schools website. My problem is when i add a link to it. The link will not work. Heres what the page looks like http://multicon.forumotion.com/h3-test-page heres the HTML code i'm using.
Code:
<html>
<body>

<div id="container" style="width:500px">

<div id="header" style="background-color:#FFA500;">
<h1 style="margin-bottom:0;">Main Title of Web Page</h1></div>

<div id="menu" style="background-color:#FFD700;height:200px;width:100px;float:left;">
<b>Menu</b>

HTML

CSS

JavaScript</div>

<div id="content" style="background-color:#EEEEEE;height:200px;width:400px;float:left;">
Content goes here</div>

<div id="footer" style="background-color:#FFA500;clear:both;text-align:center;">
Copyright © 2011 W3Schools.com</div>

</div>

</body>
</html>

I just find this today. But wanted to use something to post gaming news other then the forum page and thought this would work great. But like i said can't get links to work. Any help would be great

Oh, sorry about that. But if you look at the page you can see there was a link because how it shows up. this is what i had
Code:
[url=URL]link[/url]
Oh that codes works on HTML pages weird. Why doesn't that same code you posted work on thread posts I have to use the link button to post a working link. Ok, problem solved. But one other question is there a way to add a column to the right side like the one on the left? It just looks weird to me without a right column.

This code
Code:
[url=URL]link[/url]
is for posts because it's a BBcode. It's not HTML. You can select the option to allow HTML in your posts if you want, however.

In a HTML page, BBcode doesn't work because BBcode isn't HTML.

Hope this helps you in your work Wink

Oh ok nevermind the column i find out how to chance it. it was the purple column from the left side and chance it so it was on the right side. So I think I can take it form here. Thanks for the help both of you. This may now be locked
