I'm creating a page with some hyperlinks on it, it seems pretty simple, i just go to the link properties and where it says address i type www.yahoo.com but the link tries to go to c:\\site\mysite\http://www.yahoo.com

how can i get it to go to the web instead of looking for the link on my computer ?

You need to type in http://www.yahoo.com into the link properties - otherwise it looks for the links in your site

Notice the difference is that I added the http://

If you look in code view you can see that it should look like this :

<a href="http://www.yahoo.com">Link user clicks on goes here</a>

If you see anything else in the href part then you will probably have problems.

For example if you see only www.yahoo.com then it will look for the site on your computer instead of on the web.
