Links, PDFs, Anchors, Email

Links

Adding a link, anchor or email is easy with these buttons. 

links

You can link externally by entering the url in the box. 

insert link

You can edit internally using the folder button.

find the file

Find the file within the file structure

find file

Use this as much as possible. It creates a dependent link (see the random numbers) so if someone decides to change the name or location of the page (please don't do this!) the links won't all break. 

Dependent link

Best Practice: do not use "click here" or similar language. Use the text of the link to say what the link will do. For example: Go back to Edit Page will take you back to the Editing page.  

PDFs

Another good way to use links is for pdfs. You can link to a pdf in the same way you link to an internal page. Learn about uploading pdfs. PDFs should be uploaded to the "docs" folder. If you don't have a docs folder talk to Laura. Be sure to check out our best practices for linking and pdfs if you have questions. 

Anchors

You can create an anchor to jump to a particular place on a page, like back to the top. Or to a particular part on another page

Create an anchor within the page

Place an anchor somewhere on the page and name it a single word. 

anchor

Then highlight the words you want to link and use the link button and the anchor drop down to find the link. 

internal anchor

anchor drop down

Link to an anchor on another page

Highlight the words you want to link. Use the link button and navigate to the page where the anchor lives. Once you have gotten to the page add # and the link name after the random set of numbers.

 Emails

You can use the email button to set an email address. You can automatically fill in a subject if the page or call to action is specific. For example: 

Contact the web administrator if you need web help.
