It's a Whole New Yahoo -- In news that made it all the way to CNN last week, Yahoo! Corporation - maintainers of arguably the most widely-used catalog of the World Wide Web - announced they will be introducing a new interface on 31-Jul-95, along with directly incorporating hourly wire service newsfeeds from Reuters. Yahoo's new interface sports small graphic elements and a bare-bones search form right on the top page; also, the number of major categories has been reduced from 19 to 14, and Netscape 1.1 users are treated to a two-column display of major topic headings. (Yes, a text version is still available.) Yahoo has been picking up corporate sponsors in an effort to remain free to Web users - it's grown from a two-person effort to a company with a couple dozen employees . Yahoo's new interface should be available today at Yahoo's usual URL, but if they're running a little behind, check out their beta site. [GD]
Add Hyperlinks to TextExpander Snippets
You can include a clickable link in a TextExpander snippet. Here's how:
- Create a new snippet.
- From the Content menu (just above the snippet body), choose Content: Formatted Text, Picture.
- Put a full URL in the snippet body, such as http://www.smilesoftware.com/
- Control-click the link text and choose Make Link from the pop-up menu.
After you've made the link, you can replace the visible URL with other text. Just put your cursor in the active link text and make changes as you would with any other text.
