Add/Edit Links

Add a link to a website (external)

Overview of External Links

You can add a link to a specific external URL by selecting the text you wish to hyperlink, then clicking the "Link to content" button. (You can also remove a link via the "Unlink" button).

After clicking the "Link to Content" button, add the URL in the "Link URL" field for an external link.

Add a link to another page (internal) on the same website

Overview of Internal Links

To add a link to another page on the same website, select the text or image you would like to hyperlink, then use the "Link to Content" button.

Use the auto-complete field to find the page you want to link to (e.g., start typing "About Us" to find the "About Us" page). Select the appropriate page, then click "Insert link" to insert the internal link to the appropriate page.

When you create a Content Page, News item, or FAQ item, and if you are a Site Builder creating certain widgets, you will notice an editing toolbar within the "Body" section:

How to Add Links

Overview

Links can be internal (pages on your website), external (other websites), anchor links (also known as jump links), and attachment links (PDF, Word, etc.).

Links can be added to both text, as well as images. 

Add Attachments

Summary

Attachments like PDF, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint documents can be added to Open Berkeley sites as downloadable links. You will upload the attachment first, and then add a link that allows site visitors to click and download. File size is limited to 50 MB because larger file sizes can cause degraded performance.

Add Links

When selecting "Add links," you will have the option to add a list of links in a widget. These can be internal or external links. Use the "Find Link" button to add either internal or external links to the widget, and fill in the titles accordingly.

Attachment Links

Overview

If you've uploaded an attachment (PDF, Word, etc. - see Add Attachments), you can add a link to that attachment by following the same steps you would take to link to an internal page.

Add an anchor link to a specific location on a different page

To add a link to a specific location on a different page, follow the same steps for creating a named anchor on the same page.

Anchors point to a specific place within the page. On the page where you want to insert the link, use the Linkit button to find the appropriate page. After using Linkit's autocomplete feature to find the appropriate path to the destination page, you will have to manually add the "#anchorname" to the Link URL.

Add an anchor link to another location on the same page

To add a link to another location on the same page, you will first need to create a named anchor on that page. Anchors point to a specific place within the page.

Select the appropriate location (e.g., a heading) and click the "Insert/Edit Anchor" button in the toolbar (you will have to expand the toolbar to see the additional buttons).
