You can do this by adding HTML tags. Adding HTML tags is a fairly simple process. You will add code at the beginning and end of the text you want formatted.
We strongly recommend only using HTML tags if you are familiar with using them. Otherwise, you can contact our Support team to format for you.
Formatting, ie. bold, italics, underline
For example, if you want to bold "full name" in the following sentence:
Please type your full name in the space below.
You would add HTML tags as follows.
Please type your <strong>full name</strong> in the space below.
You can also add two different types of formatting to the same text. In this instance, we're going to bold and underline "full name".
Please type your <strong><u>full name</u></strong> in the space below.
NOTE: If the text is already pre-formatted in bold (typically you will see this in questions), you cannot bold text any further. The process to "unbold" the text is a bit more complex. If you would like information on how to go about this, submit a help ticket.
The first tag you open will be the last you close and vice versa. Below are a list of the most common tags.
Creating clickable links
You can also use HTML tagging to create a clickable link to a webpage or uploaded file or to an email address.
For a webpage or uploaded file (a file that has been uploaded to the internet and has a URL):
We are going to make the words "click here" the clickable link in the following sentence:
Please click here for more information.
To make it clickable, add the following HTML tags:
Please <a href="http://yourlinkhere">click here</a> for more information.
Your URL must be the FULL URL, including the "http://" part.
To make the "click here" link to an email address, you will add the following tags:
Please <a href="mailto:emailaddresshere">click here</a> for more information.
In place of "emailaddresshere" add the full email address to which you want the link to go.
You can even add a subject to be automatically placed into the subject line of the email. To do this, simply add the following between the email address and the closing quotes.
So, it will look like this:
Please <a href="mailto:emailaddresshere?subject=yoursubjectlinehere">click here</a> for more information.
HTML tagging can be a complicated process, especially for those not familiar with web development. If you need assistance in formatting using HTML tagging, please submit a help ticket.
