Creating Links

This article will offer a complete tutorial on how to link page elements like text and images to other pages on your website, as well as external addresses and downloadable files. This article also explains how "link targeting" works, allowing you to open links in new browser windows.

To get started, login to Oncord and click the "Pages" link, located under the "Website" heading in the left sidebar. Click the page that you'd like to update, or create a new page. If you don't know how to create or edit a page, please refer to the 'Create a new page' tutorial.

Once on the page editor screen, select the text or image that you would like to act as a link to another page.

After selecting an element, on the top of the screen you'll notice the text format bar.

Select the link tool, which is located in the top toolbar and shown in the image below.


Clicking the link icon will show additional options on the left-hand side of the screen.

The following options are available in this toolbar:
