Here's what you need:
  • Full_Website
  • Shown_Text

You have three ways to make a link:
  1. Use DA's Media toolbar (codefree method):


    1. If you're commenting or editing an artist's description, click on the "+Add Media" button on the bottom of the text field that looks like below, to start the Media toolbar:

      addMedia by craftysorceress

    2. Click on the following Link button in the Media toolbar on top of the page, highlighted in pink below:

      toolbarH by craftysorceress



    3. Type in the Full_Website in the URL box, and Shown_Text in the Title box. Press OK when you're done:

      Url by craftysorceress

    4. It will look like: Shown_Text

  2. OR Type code:

    1. Your template that you type keystroke-by-keystroke is:

      • <u><b><a href="Full_Website">Shown_Text</a></b></u>

      • It will look like: Shown_Text

  3. OR, copying-pasting-deleting code:


    1. Alternatively, you can copy and paste the template below:
    • < u>< b>< a href ="Full_Website">Shown_Text</b></u>
    1. Delete the space after every "< "

    • It will look like: Shown_Text, same result as method #2.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Coding Example:


(Using method #2, typing code)

As an example, if had:

Full_Website=craftysorceress.deviantart.com
Shown_Text=CraftySorceress's Portfolio

Then, i will type in:

<u><b><a href="craftysorceress.deviantart.com">CraftySorceress's Portfolio</a></b></u>


And it will appear like:

CraftySorceress's Portfolio
Here's a quick template to insert links to any DeviantArt text, including Comments and Artist's Comments. Whenever I'm thanking someone for a favorite, I like to use this template.

This is based on HTML, so if you know HTML, this is probably way too simple for you. I posted this as a quick reference for me so I don't haveto retype it every time, and for others that may not know html, but want a normal html effect.

Let me know if you're interested in me making an html link generator you can copy 'n paste.


Update: I'm struggling to show html code on DeviantArt, and I can't seem to find an easy way to do this, shy of posting an image. (But that isn't helpful for copy/pasters)

Update 2: HUGE thanks to :iconneocoolstar: for figuing the above update up. If you want general HTML info, please check out her tutorial here.

Update 3:
  • Simplified the example for ease of understanding.
  • Since I saw many people copy-and-paste the example and fail because of text, I made it clearer in the tutorial that one either has to type in the code manually, or copy and paste some other code, then delete spaces.Hopefully that clears up a ton of confusion.
  • Added the GUI method provided by the Sta.shWriter Media toolbar. This is the easiest, codeless method to do it, but the HTML code method is still worthwhile, with the result looking like a link.

How can you get the link without the arrow in the right? I did the same step, but it still gets the arrow every single time.

I typed in. <  a href = "website link" >text that will be shown</ a>

It it automatically does it with the arrows.
Type the code I did above without the spaces and there should be a result.
