XF 2.1 Can't figure out how to put a link in an HTML widget

I've searched and can't find the answer. How do I do this?
The Template box in the widget says " You may use XenForo template syntax here. " But I can't find the syntax for a link.

If I try to enter an <a href=> tag, I get:

Oops! We ran into some problems.
Please enter a value using only a-z, A-Z, 0-9, and _ characters.

Same thing if I enter BBCode.

Hey, you can learn about XenForo template syntax by studying other template files. Make sure you're editing the correct file. The files ending in .less are for styling only! You must edit the file that doesn't end in .less.

If you provide some example code you can't get working we may be able to help you out more.
