99.9% of the internet uses hyperlinks. They let you create a link like this instead of like this: http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/11084. The obvious benefit is that with the hyperlink, someone with even the slightest curiosity can go to your link with a click of the mouse and without the hyperlink they have to copy and paste the url into a browser.
Many people creating projects on Cuusoo however do not user them. This is most common for links to additional images or to video content. I often see phrases like:
Check out a video of my project here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjE7SUuamD4
When they could be saying
Check out my video here!
Which do you think is going to get the most click troughs? If that video or link is going to get you supporters you have to make it easy for the audience.
How do you create Hyperlinks?
Hyperlinks are incredibly simple to write, just follow this example:
<a href="link">display text</a>
Whatever you type in the quotes for href="" will be link that the hyperlink will go to.
Whatever you put in between > and </a> will be the text that shows up.
So writing <a href="http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/11084">Corellian Defender</a> in your project would create the hyperlink Corellian Defender which will go to http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/11084 when clicked.
Note that you cannot type a hyperlink (or any html) into a comment on a project. This is to protect Cuusoo users from scripting attacks (which is a much larger topic and one unrelated to Cuusoo). So I cannot explain to people how to use hyperlinks in their projects....so I am doing it here.
