Linking to other pages

There are two ways to link to another web page:

  1. Either by setting text in a document as a link
  2. By having a special weblink page that directs to another web page (a sort of shortcut).

Any text in the resource content may turned into a link. A link will redirect the reader to another web page. The webpage may be another page in the website, or any page on the internet.

To link text in a resource

  1. Hightlight the text in the resource content that you wish to turn into a link.
  2. Click on the small icon of a chain in the second row of the tools menu called 'Insert/edit link'.
  3. To set a link to an external page e.g. the BBC website, you would type (or paste) 'http://www.bbc.co.uk'/ into the 'Link URL' field.
  4. Alternatively, to link to another page in your website start typing the name of the page in the 'Search in EVO' field and select the appropriate page from the list.
  5. Click on the 'OK' button at the bottom to complete the link.

To remove a link in a resource

  1. Place the cursor anywhere on the link.
  2. Click on the small icon of a broken chain in the second row of the tools menu called 'Unlink'.

To create a weblink resource

  1. Right click on the resource where you wish to contain the weblink (this is in the same way you would start to create a new resource).
  2. Select Create weblink here from the menu list.
  3. A new weblink document will be displayed. Give it a title just like any other resource.
  4. But instead of having document content there is an attribute field called Weblink. Set this to either the full url of the page you wish to link to or click the blue folder icon next the the word Weblink and then click the page in the document tree to link to a page internal to the website.
  5. Make sure you publish the new weblink document in the usual way before saving.

Note: If you link to a page external to the website it is usual to force that page to open in a new browser window. To achieve this click the 'open new window' button.
