Adding a link to your site

created

It's probably important to you to be able to create a link within a content item pointing to another article on your site.  It’s actually pretty easy, if you use the WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor.

Just follow these steps:

1) Navigate to the content item you want to add a link to

2) At the spot where you would like the link to appear, enter the anchor text.  For example, if you are linking to an article about PICnet, you could put the text, “A great company!”

3) Then, select (or, highlight) that text.

5) Use the "Link Browser" to navigate to and select the contact, content, menu or weblinks that you would like to link to by clicking the [+] button to the left of the choice that makes sense.  Continue to drill down using the  [+] buttons until you get to the item that you want. 

6) Click that item, it should autofill the URL field above.

7) In the “Attributes” box near the bottom, you will determing which “target” behaviour you want the link to have.  You will see the following options:

Open in this window / frame - This option will keep the visitor in the same window when they click the link.  This will navigate them away from your website.  If the link appears in an iframe, it will open it within the same frame.

Open in a new window - This will open a new window for the link, keeping the window that the vistor was in open for the visitor.

Open in parent window / frame - This will open the new page in the same window similar to  Open in this window / frame.  However if the link is in an iframe, the the link will open in the frame or window that contains it, e.g. it’s “parent.”

Open in top frame (replaces all frames) -  This will open the new page in the same window similar to  Open in this window / frame.  However if the link is in an iframe, the the link will open in the outermost frame, regardless of which iframe the link is in.

8) Click “Insert”

You will see that your anchor text has turned into a link.  Save the article, and you should be all set!
