We don't support html directly, we use markdown. We've added a pretty extensive help section to our markdown editor - click the question mark and you will find a very precise instructions on how to use all of the features including links in our markdown editor.

There is also a toolbar when writing a post that should give quick links to frequently used formatting.

You left out the = between href and the quoted URL. It works thus:

This link should be an a HTML tag with href="https://judaism.meta.stackexchange.com/" and the site seems to be making it into a link.

You had:

This https://judaism.meta.stackexchange.com/">link should be an a html tag with href"https://judaism.meta.stackexchange.com/" but the site doesn't seem to be making it into a link.

  • While this is correct, this much is implied to anyone who knows even an modicum of HTML. This answer can be translated to YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!!!!!! Mar 4, 2012 at 18:04
  • @neilfein, well, yes, except that my answer was more informative than "you're doing it wrong": it explained how Yoel was doing it wrong, and what the right way is. Seems like a good answer to me....
