Links allow users to click from page to page on your site as well as direct users to valuable related information.
With Site Builder, you can have the following types of links:
- internal files (files that are created or uploaded to Site Builder)
Examples: any .php files created in Site Builder or file types such as .doc, .pdf, .ppt, .mp3.
- external files (email address, or URLs)
Examples: email@example.com or http://www.mun.ca
Highlight the text
or click on the image you want to link
and click the "Link" icon.
The "Insert/edit link" window will open.
Then select the type of link you want to make, either an internal link (from the drop-down list, see note below) or an external link (the URL of an external website or Email address, see note below).
Click the "Insert" button.
*Note: Any file you create in Site Builder (a .php file) or any file you upload to Site Builder (PDF, .doc, .mp3, .ppt) is an "Internal" file, it is listed in the "Internal" drop-down list and can be linked.
Click the "Ok" button.
Your email address is now a link. When a user clicks on it, their email client will open.
You will also see the same message if you enter an external link without the http:// prefix.
*Note: If you want to change an external or internal link, repeat the above process. Note now that instead of "Insert" the button in the "Insert/edit link" window will now say "Update".
*Note: Be as specific as you can when creating links. Tell the user exactly where they're going.
