Links is the feature that allows you make it very easy for your site visitors to get to related information. This information could be on your site or on a totally different website, anywhere on the www. This section will show you how to make links and give them the features that you want.

To make a link to a page on your site:

  1. Go to “Add or edit pages”. Select the page (for Editing) where you want to add the link.
  2. In the text box, type words that describe the location that you want to link to (example words like – Click here to go to the picture page. Or Click here to go to the website with news of you culture).
  3. Highlight this text.
  4. In the group of icons above the text box, click on the icon that looks like links of a chain.

To make a link to another website:

  1. Go to “Add or edit pages”. Select the page (for Editing) where you want to add the link.

  5. A new window opens titled “Link”. In the “Link Type” box, click on the down arrow and select “URL”
  6. The “Protocol” field should show http:// . Don’t change this.
  7. In the “URL” field, type, or past the URL of the site that you want to link to. An easy way to get this information is to open another browser window, go to the website that you want to link to then copy the URL string and paste it into this field. (if the http:// exists twice, we will be automatically deleted one of them)
  8. Now click on the tab called “Target”. A target field opens, click on the down arrow to see the pull-down menu. Here is meaning and purpose of these selections:
    1. <not set> - the link will close your website and open the linked website in this browser window instead.
    2. <frame> - This is not an option on our websites, do not use
    3. <popup window> - a popup window will open with the new website in it. The system offers several configuration options for this popup window so you need to fill in the fields.
    4. New Window (_blank)> - This option will keep your website open and open either another browser or Tab (depending on how their computer is set up) with the linked website in it.
    5. Topmost Window (_top) – Do not use
    6. Same Window (_self) - Do not use
