Are you referring to the dialogue box that appears after you click "Create link" and enter your URL? If so, the "description" is just the clickable text that allows one to access the link.

Hi Emily.

There are two ways to make a link.
The easiest one (for me) is to just type the sentence, and then highlight the words I want to be a link.
Then click on the link button and paste in the internet address.

So I type: "If you click here, you'll see a silly cat meme."
I highlight the word "here" - then click the link button and add the URL.

If you click here, you'll see a silly cat meme.

***********
The other way is to type the first bit - "If you click" - then click on the link button and paste in the URL. It will then ask for the link description.
There, you would type "here" then click "OK". Then finish the sentence with ", you'll see a silly cat meme.

If you click here, you'll see a silly cat meme.

The result is the same.

It stopped working! I mean the link when you copy and paste... 😢 It only works for me! Because it is local!

Yes. The address has to be "https://" or something similar. It doesn't work if it's local. You can upload it to an internet host (like flickr, pinterest, and so on), then use the link address from there.

Also - if you don't use the link button, there's a bug with some web addresses.

If you just paste in the web address it shows the link in your text, like this.
https://www.thefreedictionary.com/cat
That one is fine - you get the right page, the definition of "cat".

However, if you paste in a web address which includes a "plus sign" (+) it doesn't recognise that symbol or anything after it.
