How do I edit my showcase listing. Was unable to keep the text split text into paragraphs and show the developers site details as a hyperlink.

If you are logged in then you should see a edit and delete link under your showcase entry on the main page (eg http://skitch.com/willrossi/nffpq/community-showcase-silverstripe.org-open-source-cms-framework)

Thanks. I have retyped the text into 3 paragraphs but it still merges all together into one paragraph and I still cant get www.fueldesign,co,nz to show as a hyperlink.

Ok well I just tested it and adding a link works fine. I think the site might strip out paragraph tags. Maybe try <br /> tags.

Adding this to my profile worked fine.

Sorry but I still cant do either. I have tried copying and pasting the hyperlink from Word where it works well but it loses the link every time. Perhaps I should explain that I am not a web developer just a CMS user and 68!!

Never copy anything from word into a text area. Word does crazy things. Just write out the link like I have in the previous post - with the destination of the link inside the href="" and the label (the visible text) in between

Try writing this out inside the text box on the site

Many thanks! Have achieved what I wanted. Yes I did know not to paste from Word but was trying that as a last resort.
