hyperlink on php#1
I'm working on a wordpress template and need to add a hyperlink to the cartoon bubble at the top of the page. The bubble, as far as I can tell, is php. Where do I insert the href?

<h1><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>

The href should point to www.ojaivalleynews.com

The blog url is www.ovnblog.com if you want a visual on the bubble. I've used firebug to ispect, but alas I don't know enough about php to make sense of it.



I missed the second line of code regarding the above question, and based off of the suggestions here, have made corrections to this line and it works.

<h1><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>
<div id="bubble"><p><a href="http://www.ojaivalleynews.com/" target="_blank"><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></p></div>

Thanks for everyone's help. An upvote for everybody!

Re: hyperlink on php#3
What do you mean, "insert the href"? Does bloginfo('url') include the domain name? Also, are bloginfo() return values escaped? If they aren't, see the htmlspecialchars PHP function.

Re: hyperlink on php#4
Rereading your question several times makes me think you aren't the writer of this code. In that case, are you trying to replace the URL of that link? If so, change "<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/" to "ojaivalleynews.com/".

Re: hyperlink on php#5
Don't you have to echo the return values of the function?<h1><a href="<?php echo bloginfo('url'); ?>/"><?php echo bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>

Re: hyperlink on php#6
Not if the function itself echo's the return value.

Re: hyperlink on php#7
Can't believe I didn't see that myself. However, I'm not sure if that's the problem (which isn't too clear in the first place).

Re: hyperlink on php#8
<h1><a href="http://www.ojaivalleynews.com/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>I think that's what you want, but I can't be sure...

Re: hyperlink on php#9
if you want to replace this with another -static- link it should be:<h1><a href="http://www.ojaivalleynews.com"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>

Re: hyperlink on php#10
just replace the <?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/withhttp://www.ojaivalleynews.com

@rashneon, See @Laodimos's answer, @Scott Evernden's answer, or @Paolo Bergantino's answer (which are all the same thing).
