    Thanks to those who suggested in the other thread about using Weebly. I played around with it tonight and am liking it. I find my district web page to be really hard and annoying to update on and we don't have to use it so I think I'll be going with Weebly.

    One thing I can't figure out though, if I want to share a link, how can I make it so the parents can just click on it to have it work? Like if there's a good game that teaches latitude and longitude, how to I add that to my page and then have the parents/students be able to just click on the link and not have to do a copy and paste of the link?

    Thanks to anyone who can help!

    The easy way is to make a textbox and paste the link into it.

    I make all of my links as buttons because I think it's more visually appealing.

    When I did it as text it just appeared as text and wasn't "clickable." But I liked your suggestion of having the buttons, so I went that route and the links then open up in a new window. Thanks for the tip! Definitely liking Weebly and it's ease of use. Now to see if I can manage to do a god job updating on there throughout the whole year.

    Thanks for the help :).

    Just an FYI (since I know you're doing buttons), I know for sure there's a way to make the words linkable because I also have a Weebly page. After putting in a text box, you can highlight it, edit text, I don't know without opening it up, which I don't feel like doing right now, but it is possible :)
