Creating and Managing Links - Team Logic Help System

Creating and Managing Links

From within any page, you should see a chain-link icon in the toolbar of the editor that looks like this:

The first icon adds a link, the second removes a link, and the third adds an anchor.

Create new link in your web page content

  • First left-click your mouse and highlight the text that you wish to become a link.
     Highlight some text
  • Click the first add link icon and this window will appear.

     
  • Enter in the URL you want to link to in the URL field
  • (Optional) If you would like the link to open in a new window, Click the "Target" tab and choose the appropriate selection

     

Removing a Link

  1. Highlight the link you are looking to remove
  2. Click the "break link" button, Break Link

Making an Image a Link

To create a link from an image, simply click on the image and go to the link icon in the editor. Follow the same steps as above.

White boxes indicate the image was highlighted

Absolute Links - Finding the URL of an external website

Absolute links are appropriate for pages outside your website. For example, if the website domain I'm working on is "http://help.team-logic.com/" and I want to link to "http://www.example.com/index.html", I will use an absolute link.

  1. Browse to the link you would like to add
  2. Highlight the entire link from the URL bar and copy
  3. You now have the link in your clip-board, you may paste it in the dialog above or elsewhere as needed.

Copy a link from your browser

Relative Links - Find the URL of a page in your website

Relative links are used when the page containing the link is on the same website as the link destination. For example, if the page I'm on is "http://help.team-logic.com/Add-links-to-a-page-or-website/" and I would like to link to "http://help.team-logic.com/Creating-and-Linking-to-Anchors/", I would use a relative link. Note the "http://help.team-logic.com/" part of the link must be the same. The link is relative to the site you are currently on.

  1. Browse to the link you would like to add
  2. Highlight everything to the right of the domain name
  3. You now have the link in your clip-board, you may paste it in the dialog above or elsewhere as needed.

Copy a relative link from your browser

Why can't I just make all absolute links?

Technically you can. It is not recommended if you ever decide to change your domain. If all the links are absolute and the domain name changes, all links will break.
