Add a Link

  • To add a link to your content, carefully highlight the text to be linked--don't include extraneous spaces and be sure you get all the letters you intended to.
  • Then click the Insert/Edit Link icon in the formatting toolbar.
  • Paste the page address into the URL field to avoid typing errors. Alternately, if you're wanting to link to an anchor point on the current page, use the Anchor drop-down to select the anchor name. If you're needing to upload and link to a document instead of a Web page, see the page on uploading a document.
  • If desired, you can use the Target field to make the link open in a new browser tab/window. This is recommended in the following cases:
    • External links off the university site
    • Links to another section of the university site, if desired
    • Separate web systems, such as myPugetSound
    • Non-native files, such as PDFs, DOCs, etc.
  • If desired, you can use the Class field to make the link appear as a button. This is not recommended for text in a paragraph, and there are no customizations possible to the look-and-feel of the button.
