Add a link to other site pages

Internal page linkCreates or edits a link to another page, product cateogry or product on your web site.

 

Click on the image or select the text that you want to link from (make sure any text is highlighted to be selected)

Click on the icon above (in your editor!) and you will be given a list of pages and products on your site:

Internal links - lists of site pages on the menu 

These are listed by section, with pages listed on there. Simply select one of the pages, press 'Ok' and the link will be added to the text or image on the page.

NB: pages marked with a * next to them may not yet be published. These are useful to have as it allows you to build a page that links to this, while pages are yet to be published. However, you must publish the pages that are linked to before you publish or update the page you are linking from, or you will have a broken link for any users on your website that click it.

If you scroll further down, the next option lists pages that are not on the menu (for a large site, this is likely to be most pages), again listed under sections and subsections:

Pages on teh website listed - those not on the menu.

Scrolling further down, the next option lists products and categories of product and a link will be made to that product or category clicked on, in the same way as with the pages.

TIP: Links can be added wherever you have selected an image or a piece of text.

Editing a link

To edit a link, use this icon Add or edit a link when you've selected the text or image or right button over the link and click 'Insert/Edit Hyperlink...'

Edit link 

Other link options shown:

No Follow: This adds a  rel="nofollow" statement into a link which is useful where you have advertisers on a website and want to keep within the Google guildelines for giving links.

Target: This means you can choose to open the link in a new window. This is useful where you want to keep a visitor on your site but sill have useful links etc..

Link: shows the URL for the link

Advanced link options


Name:
name of the link (use it to create anchors).

Title:
the text is show when mouse cursor is over the link.

Link to cart: places a link directly to your shopping cart.

Link to checkout: links directly to the checkout, so that the customer can finish shopping and buy the goods.

NB You can also add anchor points manually, using a # before the anchor name. See the link page (click here).

Anchors: Anchors are points within a page which you can link to. Why use them? A good reason might be to jump to the top of a page from the bottom OR if you have a form, to jump from section to section if some of it is not relevant OR an FAQ on a page with links down the page and then links back to the questions. You can also jump from one page to an anchor point on another page so that he user is not presented with the top of the page but with a specific relevant point within a page.

Link to an anchor
Go to where you want to link TO this anchor point and create a new link by selecting the page in the internal link facility (yes, even if you are on the same page), but this time, in the 'Link:' box, add the anchor name with a # in front, so in the example above you would add #name. This will then create a link within the page to the anchor point http://www.yoursitename.co.uk/yourpagename.html#name.

If you want to link to the anchor from another page

Do as before , add the complete url and then the anchor name with a hash - e.g. http://www.yoursitename.co.uk/yourpagename.html#name
