Adding Internet Links

1. Select the text on the page that you wish to create a link.

2. Click the 'More' button on the toolbar to show additional functions.

3. Click the 'Hyperlink Manager' icon.

4. Enter the URL of the page that you wish to link to.

Property Overview
Property Description
URL A relative path or absolute path to the page that you wish to link to.
http://www.extremeease.com/support.htm   (absolute URL)
welcome.aspx (relative URL)
Existing Anchor Instead of linking to another page, the selected text or image can link to an anchor within the current page. This is commonly used for FAQ pages.
Link Text Specifies the text that will be displayed for the link.
Type This is normally set to http: but this can be changed depending on the link type. For example, to add a link to make an ftp connection to a website, change this to ftp:  The resulting link will look something like this: ftp://www.mydomain.com
Target Determines where the page will be displayed. This is normally set to 'New Window' or 'Same Window'

Same Window (or left blank) - Page is displayed in the same frame
New Window - Page is displayed in a new browser window
Tooltip Popup message displayed when the user moves their mouse over the link.
CSS Class Defines the style (or format) of the link. This is usually used by advanced users.

5. The link will be created. The text will be blue with an underline. Note: links are not active when the page is in edit mode.

Note: An Internet link can also be added by simply typing the URL into the page. Any set of characters that starts with www. or http:// and ends with a space will be converted to an Internet link. If the URL contains spaces, enclose the URL in double quotes and the link will be converted correctly.
