Article summary

When editing site pages in the Content Editor, three main link types are available: URL, Anchor, and Email links. The following video and text will cover working with each type.

The link button is located in the bottom left corner of the toolbar in the Content Editor.

1. Highlight the text you would like to have the link inserted.

2. Click on the Insert Link icon.

3. To link to the URL, cut and paste it into the URL field and click OK.

1. Click Browse Server.

2. If the PDF has already been uploaded, find it and click on it. If not, you will click [+] Add A File and locate the file you would like to upload. When you have located the file, click Upload. Once your file has been uploaded to the server, click on it and click OK.

To have your link open in a new window, click the Target tab in the link dialog box. The drop-down menu will allow you to choose New Window.

Anchors allow you to link to areas within any given page. This is especially useful for long pages requiring a fair bit of scrolling 

1. Click on the Insert/Edit Anchor button. 

2. Name each anchor, such as the Top of the Page.

3. Highlight the text you want to link to your anchor and click Insert Link.

You can link text or pictures to an email where you can pre-populate an email address, subject, and message body. You can use this for your email unsubscribes, contacting specific people, or other items. The email will open in the visitors' email system (i.e., Outlook, Gmail, Hotmail, etc.). Here is an example:

Please email support if you have any questions about linking text or images to emails.
