Linking to a Web Page

A big part of the Internet's beauty is its connectivity and setting up links to join the rest of the web and make navigating between pages of your site is extremely simple. There are two different types of web page links you will likely be setting up:

Links to URLs outside of www.your-domain.com

Links to URLs within www.your-domain.com

Creating a link to a URL outside your domain

To create a link to a URL outside your domain, begin by simply highlighting the word or phrase you would like to function as the link. Then, select the link button show, below in the content editor.

You will see an Insert/edit link popup box appear on your screen, allowing you to type or paste in the URL to which you want to link into the URL bar.

Note: The Insert/edit link popup box also allows you to indicate whether you want your link to load in the same window or in a separate tab. We typically recommend setting links to URLs outside your domain to open in a new tab so that users don't accidentally navigate away from your website.

Once you've inserted your link and set up your options, click Insert and the word or phrase in the content editor should now be highlighted, with an active link established.

Creating a link to a page within your domain

To establish a link to another page within your domain, begin by highlighting the word or phrase you would like to serve as the link, and select the link button.

After selecting the link icon, you will see an Insert/edit link popup box appear on your screen. Because you are linking content to another page within your site, choose the Pages drop down. There are two ways to find a page within your site.

First, you may search for a page by typing in keywords. Once the desired page comes up, select the page you wish to link to.

Search for

As a second option, you can easily navigate your site tree to the page you wish to link.  To do this, select the Browse button next to the search bar. 

Navigate through your site tree to find the page you wish to link to.

Once you've selected the page to which you want to link, click Insert to activate the link!

Note: you can also type in the end of the link's URL (e.g., the bold portion of www.yourdomain.com/subdomain/end-url) beginning with the backslash following the domain's base URL and including the rest of the end URL
