Why don't my links show up in blog comments sometimes?

    Trying to build some manual high PR blog comment links for my website. Every once in a while the HTML code doesn't register and it winds up showing the code. For example instead of showing the anchor and link to my page it shows <a href="http://mywebsite.com">My Website</a>

    Then I look up the page and see other blog comments with perfectly working links. How do they do it?

    This happens to me sometimes too and I've never figured out why.. Mega frustrating.

    Can you look at the html source to see how their links are represented in there?

    Ok I think I figured it out. I went through the list and saw the ones that were messed up. At the top of the comment boxes were little icons where you can control the text, like make it bold, italics, etc. and sure enough there was the chain link icon for you to manually put in a link. So some websites you can't just write out the HTML code, you have to click the link button and put it in that way for it to work.

    Some websites disable HTML code within comments due to security reasons. You will have to either skip the websites, or find an alternative.

    Some of the blog engines disable HTML in comment fields, to prevent comment spam :)
