Select the text on the page where you would like to create a link and tick the 'Link' button in the upper portion of the Contribute window. A dialogue box pops up which presents you with your link options. You can do the following:
- Browse to a Web Page (click browse button to find the web page you'd like to link to
- Choose a File in your website directory you'd like to link to (this could be existing web pages, or PDF files which are located in the 'documents' folder.
- File on My Compuer - Locate a PDF, image, or Word file on your local hard drive which will upload the file to our web server. Note: for this option, you must 'Publish' the page in order for the PDF file to be saved in the 'documents' folder and available for viewing on your website.
- Email Address: You may select this option, then simply enter the email address you'd like to link to. Note: Linking to email addresses using this method will usually cause your web browser to attempt to open up Microsoft Outlook email client. If your website visitors do not have Outlook configured properly, this may cause problems opening up this link. Our recommendation is to type the email address in the page, but NOT link directly to it.
If you prefer, you could create a link in Contribute by navigating to the page you'd like to link to using your preferred browser then copying and pasting (Ctr > C to copy and Ctr > V to paste) the link from the address pane.
