    As I understand, you want to insert a blue text link in the form right?

    I can see that you know how to add text in the form. So after adding text, you need to edit it. Click the HTML button for the HTML editor to appear. 

    If the link was already visited, it will turn purple as a default. So we will add an inline CSS to make sure it is colored blue even if the website was already visited by the user.

    I added style="color: blue;" attribute on the <a> tag so your HTML code should look like these.

    <a style="color: blue;" target="_blank" href="http://www.jotform.com">JotForm</a>

    Click Update and Save the form.


    Hope this helps. Let us know if not so we can further assist you.

    Add an email for website link to jot form.

    This is regarding the original title you posted. I'm not sure if I understand it correctly but you want to make the email as a link right?

    If so, then just add the "mailto:" function. For example:

    <a target="_blank" href="mailto:steve@abc.com">steve@abc.com</a>

    Hope this helps. Thank you.
