Adding Your Response

The Text Box
At the end of every topic page is a text box where you are given the opportunity to add your responses to the conversation.

To add your response: Your response will be added to the end of the conversation and will be displayed along with the previous response.

Even though you see your response displayed, you are still at the respond stage.
If you hit the Reload button, your response will be posted a second time.
Use the Back button or various navigation options to return to reading or browsing.
Adding HTML To Your Response
If you are familiar with HTML tags, you can include active links in your response. Simply type the HREF anchor reference as usual.

For example, if you are posting a link to Yahoo you would type your response as follows:

Here is my favorite Internet index page.
It is called <A HREF="http://www.yahoo.com">Yahoo.</A>

And it would appear as follows:

Here is my favorite Internet index page.
It is called Yahoo.

Even easier is to just type the URL. Yapp recognizes the format and makes it an active link like this:

My favorite Internet index page is located at http://www.yahoo.com

or this:

You can get that file at ftp://support.apple.com
Be sure to close any open tags before submitting your response.
