Very new to this.
I had used an online database to test and it offered the option for a field to be a hyperlink.
I am using mysql now and I do not see a similiar option. HOw can I have a field accept a hyperlink?
Thanks
Take Care

Just have a standard text field and input the html for a hyperlink. When this is spat out onto a html page you will have your hyperlink.

The only warning I think I should point out is ensure that you validate the data being entered by a user. You can insert some nasty scripts into a hyperlink tag.
