How to add iTunes link?

Can someone please tell me how to add an iTunes link to a reference point on a website?

I am trying to do it for both text and an image. Thanks.

Click this button when you are editing the text:

Then copy and paste the link into that box. Then another box will pop up asking what you want the text to be.

OR

Highlight the text you want to link, click then paste in the link.

That's for things like forums on this website. But the code it gives you should work in most places...

First, open itunes and look for the app you want to link. Right-click on it. Then, you'll see message saying "copy itunes store URL". left-click on it. Then, write a new message in Touch Arcade. Click on the link button. It is under the smiley face. A small window is going to appear where it says "Please enter the URL of your link". Paste you itunes link and it will appear in your message. If you are editing a message, you won't see the link button. you have to click where it says "Go advanced". It is to the right of the "save" button.

I hope I was clear enough. let me know if you got it.

this is what i do. u go to a website with a link and click on it. when it goes to the url that goes "ax.itunes.apple....", click the X to stop it from loading. then copy the url. for example, http://ax.itunes.apple.com/WebObject...4%2526mt%253D8

to do this, here is the "code" with some brackets missing
URL="http://ax.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/browserRedirect?url=itms%253A%252F%252Fax.itunes.a pple.com%252FWebObjects%252FMZStore.woa%252Fwa%252 FviewSoftware%253Fid%253D301387274%2526mt%253D8"[ATTACH]3604[/ATTACH
[/URL


EDIT: of course, u could always just click "copy url", but at least i was first to teach how to put it in an image

I suggest you use the link maker.

Just use iTunes Link Maker.
with this tool you can create all kind of links/code which would get you directly where you need.

The only thing you shall remove there is the country code so it would work on all stores (for example "us" country code).

Apple has recently released shortcuts … in html these are the basic ways to link easily...

<a href="http://www.appstore.com/appname">Link to your app</a>

<a href="http://www.appstore.com/yourdevname">Link to all your apps</a>

<a href="http://www.appstore.com/appname"><img src="http://www.yourwebsite.com/yourimagelocation"></a>

This has been available for a while. Note that you don't need the www. bit if entering it in the address bar, so you can put nice clean formats on your business card, such as:

appstore.com/shootstorm

Also note that you take out any spaces in the app or developer name. This can lead to issues with multiple apps / developers having the same address, in which case you go to a search result screen. My developer name is Moonjump, but there are apps called MoonJump and MOON JUMP by different developers, so appstore.com/moonjump takes you to a screen showing those apps plus all mine.
