How do I add dots to my link?

P: 3
I'm trying to add 5 dots behind every link on a wordpress site. My code is below but when I try to put dots in, they are appearing on a new line.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" target="_blank"><?php echo intro_text(84); ?></a>

Nothing I've tried works. I want the dots after the link, not before.

No matter where I put them they end up on a new line.

You can use a little method like the one attached and concatenate it.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. function fivedots(){
  2.     $dots =  '.....';
  3.     return $dots;
  4. }
Then add this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" target="_blank"><?php echo intro_text(84).fivedots(); ?></a>

This could be happening for quite a few reasons. First, check that you have enough room for both the link and the 5 .'s so that it's not wrapping. Second, check that there's no CSS giving the "block" display to your "a" tags ("display: block;"). If it's not either of those, it's still probably CSS that's giving you a hard time.
