When you create interactive puzzle web pages with EclipseCrossword, it's possible to include links. You might want to do this to give people help solving tricky clues, or as part of a classroom assignment.
Important: When you add links or other HTML code to your puzzle, those links will appear as HTML code when printed. Only do this for puzzles that you want to save as interactive web pages.
You have a couple options for adding links to your clues: either using a third-party extension, or adding HTML code directly.
EclipseCrossword fan Marek Cieciura has created a page that automatically adds links to word lists. When using this extension, for any clue that you want to have a tip link, add the link directly after the clue, like this:

After using this extension, the clue will appear like this:

To upgrade your word list and turn those into functional links:
(Green Eclipse does not manage or endorse software created by others, and we won't be able to help you if you run into any problems using this extension.)
If you're familiar with HTML code, you can add HTML code directly to your clues. Or, if you aren't, you can create a link by typing your clue like this:
<a href="http://www.eclipsecrossword.com/" target="_blank">EclipseCrossword</a> is my favorite app
Be sure to type the code exactly as shown. Replace the part in
quotation marks after
href with the link you want to direct
people to. Make sure that you start it with
http:// or it
won't work properly. Then, between the > and the <, type the text that
you want to appear as the link. The above code produces an example
that looks like this:
