Link to a Document [back to top]

Documents can be used in a number of ways on the website. If you don't want people to make changes to your documents, you will probably want to have them in pdf format. PDF allows people to only view your document and print it.
The first step is to upload the document to the docs folder under Images & Files Management. From the admin bar, click the Content link, from the drop down menu click Images & Files.

1. The File Management interface will launch.  Select the docs folder.

2. Hover over the Upload button from across the top of the interface. 

3. From the drop down menu, click From Computer.  Select the Browse button to find the file on your computer.  Navigate your computer to locate and select the file(s) you wish to upload and click the Open button.

4. Now click the Send button to place the file(s) on the web server.

Try This: When uploading multiple files at once, select the first file and hold the shift key down while selecting the last file and all files between the first and last one selected will also be selected.  To choose three or more file not next to each other, hold the CTRL key down while clicking each file.

Navigate to the page where you want to create the link. Click Edit on the admin bar
Once the Edit Article page loads, locate and click the spot on the page where you want to place the link. Type out descriptive words for the link; for example the words Click Here may be all that is needed or it could be an entire sentence.

Select the words or the sentence that is to become the new link. This is done by clicking beside the text (and holding the left mouse button down) and dragging across the text to highlight just what is to be linked (then let the left mouse button loose). 

Once the text is selected, click the Link Icon ( ) located on the toolbar. A pop-up box will appear. (Make sure that the pop-up blocker is disabled for this site.)

Click the Browse Server button in the dialog box.

Select the folder containing the document.

Double click the document name. The link will automatically be inserted into the URL line in the dialog box.

Click the OK button, and click Publish to save the changes.


Create a Navigational Link [back to top]

Navigation links are the links that appear on every page of your website. They help visitors find the important pages and guide them to the sub pages. And, are also classified as parent pages on your website.

Each website has 15 navigational link spots they can fill. We recommend limiting your selection to 5 or 7 main navigation items, and consider the theme you have selected. Click here for more information about themes.

1. Click on System going across the top, from the drop down menu click Site Configuration & Navigation. Next, click the Navigation tab.

2. On the Navigation tab, you will notice that the page is organized into 3 columns.

The first column has a heading of Title. In this column, you will enter the text that you would like the link to contain. Any empty boxes with no text are spots that can be filled by new links.

The second column is labeled URL. The fields in this column allow you to link in the following formats:
The third column has the heading of Target.
Each URL has a drop down box next to it. In this drop down box, you can designate whether the page opens in a new window or keeps the link in the same window as the website. The new window option is helpful if you are linking to website other than your own, because it will allow people to visit the other site but keep your website open at the same time so they can return.

3. To place the links in a specific order, you can click and drag the four point arrows to the position that you would like. The order that the boxes appear on your screen is the order that the links will be displayed on the website.

4. Once you have finished editing this section, click the Submit button at the bottom to save your changes.

Removing Navigation Items: remove the text from the Title field, and click Submit to save the change.
