How do I add hyperlinks to my website?

Synopsis
You wish to create hyperlinks on your website pages to another page or external website. You may wish to add a 'Donate Now' or 'Register Now' link to your home page.

Solution
To create links, follow one of the two methods below.

1. Add a text link inside a website page

  • Login to your Admin Area, then go to Website -> Pages then click on 'Edit' for the page you wish to insert a link on.
  • Highlight the text you want linked or click on an image to select it.
  • Click on the "Insert Hyperlink" button on the tool bar, the one with the Globe and Anchor Chain symbol

NOTE: Make sure that you do not have pop-ups blocked. If so, hold the Ctrl key while clicking on the Insert/Edit Link item, or disable the pop-up blocker.

  • Enter the site you want to link to in the URL field.

NOTE: If you want the link to open into a new window, then click on Target tab. Set the Target to New Window (_blank) and then press OK.

  • Make sure and press OK at the bottom of the Link box.
  • Click Update to save the changes, and verify the link from the website.

2. Add a site link to the Main Menu

  • Go to Website -> Pages.
  • You may want to add a new Blank Page or use an existing page. If adding a new page, select Blank Page from the page selector menu and click Add. If using an existing page, simply click on the Page Name that you would like to use.
  • Enter a title in the Menu Name field  (i.e. "Our Organization")
  • Enter the URL of the page you want to direct to in the Page Title field (i.e.http://www.google.com). Be sure to include the http://.
  • Click Update to save your changes.
