I've had several people ask me how to make links and/or how to re-post a piece without losing nay comments or likes. I've tried to make this guide as simple as possible, but let me know if something is unclear. Important things will be boldfaced.
HOW TO MAKE LINKS
Step One: Open up the piece you are working on (as in currently writing, this is very important. You should be able to change the piece while doing this. ) Highlight the word/words you would like to make a link to. Make sure you keep the word/words highlighted.
Step Two: Open a new tab and go to the piece that you would like to make a link to. Copy the URL of that piece and go back to the first tab. (A URL is the web address of a website.)
Step Three: While making sure the word/words are still highlighted (if for some reason they got un-highlighted, you can re-highlight them), click on the thing that looks like a paperclip to the right of the boldface and numbering icons. One paperclip should be black, and the other should be faded. Click on the black (left) paperclip and paste the URL where it tells you to. Click "okay" to save the link and "cancel" to cancel the link. Once done, the word/words that you highlighted should be blue. If not, then repeat or ask me for help :) Or you could google it, idk.
TO GET RID OF A LINK
Simply click on the link and then click on the left paperclip.
HOW TO RE-POST A PIECE AS SAID ABOVE
Step One: Un-post the piece. Do not change the piece in any way. Do not write, add, or delete anything in it. Simply take the piece down.
Step Two: Re-post the piece without changing anything. The comments and likes should be the same. If you're unsure, practice this on a piece that you don't mind losing and the likes and/or comments to, just in case.
