Girl needs help with toilet repair!! Mansfield

I tried to fix my leaking toilet myself and it was a bad idea. As far as I've read on here it's the old Mansfield inner workings. (I don't know plumbing language at all). I thought it was the small black rubber thing at the bottom of the part that holds the floater so I took the entire toilet apart, replaced the rubber part and when I put it all back together it's worse. Now for some reason water is shooting strait out of the piece the floater thing is connected to and out of the lid. Any help is much appreciated. Excuse my lack of correct terms but I'm a newby.

Is the water shooting out of a thin hose? If so, that hose should be connected to the filler tube. Point the hose into the tube. You have a clip somewhere.

Ok....I figured it out. It was the top of the fill valve and the floater was not connected correctly. But now I am back to the same issue I started with. It's a leak from the bolt that connects the water source to the tank. It only leaks when the water Line is on ( even when tank is full if I have the water line turned off it doesn't leak). Help is greatly appreciated!!

Probably the nut needs to be tightened on the supply line that attaches to the tank.

Is it a flexible supply or hard pipe?

If hard pipe I would say replace it with the flexible braided type.

A picture may help clear up what your talking about.
There is no "bolt" used to connect the water line, the only real bolts in that area are the bolts holding the tank to the bowl.
So were guessing you mean the threaded fitting at the bottom of the flush valve where the water line connects.

If you follow this link and then scroll down to step 23 , where the guy has his fingers, is that around where it is leaking ? As Mike says however, if your line isnít flexible it will be hard pipe and will look different than the braided line in the picture.
