As you build your website, you'll almost certainly want to add links on to your pages. You can add links that lead to other pages on your own website or to pages on other websites. You can change or remove these links at any time.

To add a link:

  1. Open the page for editing.
  2. In the editor, select the word or phrase that you want to turn into a link (click and drag your mouse across the words to do this).
  3. Click the insert/edit link button (important: you won't be able to click the button until you have selected the words in the previous step). The insert/edit link box will appear.

  4. If you are linking to a page on another site, paste or type the address in the link URL box then click the insert button. (Make sure you include the complete address including the http:// at the beginning - it won't work if you don't!).

To change where a link leads to:
