3. Adding a Related Link
Related links allow you to add links to pages related to the content of your page. You can highlight relevant pages within your site or point to interesting external sites or useful files. The links will appear on the top-right of a finished page as in the example to the right.
Step 1 - If you havn't already done so, create a new page or open an existing page.
Step 2 - Scroll to the bottom of you screen. At the bottom of the page you will see a series of blank spaces with the headings Link Text and Link URL. (If these spaces are not already visible, click on “Related Links” in the gold bar on the left.)
Step 3 - Type the text you want to appear (ex: “Past issues” in the above example) in the left space called Link Text. This is the text that will appear in the Related Links box on your page.
Step 4A - Insert the web page address, or URL (including http://) in the space at the right. OR
Step 4B - If you are linking to something within your own site use relative links. To do this, use this syntax: ../sectionname/filename.ext in this example, sectionname indicates the section the file is in, filename is the file's name, and ext is the extension (filetype) of your file (ex: php, pdf, doc)
Step 5 - Save your page
*Important note for developing sites - If your site is still on the Site Builder test server, do not put direct links to your files (ex: http://builder.ucs.mun.ca/temp/yourdept/file.php), as these will not work once your site goes live. Instead, use relative links, as described above in Step 4B.
