How do I paste in a url without it opening?

How do I paste in a url without it opening?

When posting my URL in my Privacy Policy it doesn't stay as URL but opens immediately within a box with the Privacy Policy repeated. It is like picture within a picture using

I agree with Loes but why do you need a link in there. I just manually type it.

It seems I don't. I was following some training but the template itself doesn't have it. That may have been the problem. I did not put it there so problem solved.

Type the name Privacy Policy, select it, use the link button and attache the link to the name

Thanks for the response. I will keep trying things. I am a little confused why we put the URL for the privacy policy within the privacy policy itself. If someone is already in the privacy policy what is the purpose of adding a link to it. I am obviously missing something.

I don't believe I have the url in there

That would certainly be easier. I was following Marion's tutorial and everything went well until the URL pasting. The template itself does not have the URL listed at the bottom so I will go with the easier option and leave it off.

It doesn't make sense

I added an extra http at beginning, copied and then deleletd extra, I had the same problem but, can’t explain why. But my idea worked.

Thanks. I will give that a try.

I understand your frustration, had the same problem un google plus, this idea might not be what computer savvy people do, but it got the job done.

Since I am definitely not computer savvy I will go for whatever is easiest and works.

I did so many times I lost count. Every time as soon as I paste it the box opens up with my Privacy Policy inside. I can click in the box and it comes up with little edit/delete symbols so I can delete it but that removes the URL link. It never stays as the URL I paste.

Hi. Usually right click your mouse and copy link.

Thank you for reply. In my case that didn't work but problem has been resolved. I don't need to use it where I thought i needed to add it.

Thanks Elaine. There was something wrong with my Privacy Page. It was showing pink in my menu and wasn't showing up on my website. I delete my menu and added it again. It worked after that.

Great to hear!!

Thank you everyone. My website is back to its original state before I started messing around.

I tried all of that over and over and policy page still said invalid. Tried again this morning and nothing. So I scrapped the whole menu and tried adding back on. Now I have my policy as a page at top but I have lost my customized home page. Guess I will now go learn about custom links and try and get the home page back. Do overs are my life. When I get 1 problem fixed I end up with 2 more.

Edit your menu again to place it at the top of your site.
