These buttons create or remove linking on an object.
To create a link, highlight the item you would like to make into a link and click the link button. The following dialogue will appear:
Creating a Standard Link
The Hyperlink tab creates a standard link to a URL. It is usually best to simply paste the URL of the page to which you'd like to link in the URL field.
You may choose to link to an anchor on the current page. An anchor is a way to jump directly to a section of the page. The Anchor tab is used to create an anchor on the page. Once the anchor is created, simply choose it from the Existing Anchor dropdown. See next figure for more details.
If you would like to change the type of the anchor to a secure (https) URL, ftp URL or some other special type, select the appropriate type from the Type dropdown. In most cases you will choose http.
The Target allows you to send the link to another page or frame. If you were to leave this blank, the link will open in the existing window. If you would like the browser to open the item in a new window, choose New Window.
The Tooltip determines what text is displayed when the mouse is held over the link. This is particularly useful to make your site more useful to handicapped users.
In most cases, it is best not to set a CSS Class on an item.
Creating an Anchor
An anchor is a reference to specific section of a page. Many times this is used to help a user jump from an index at the top of a page to an item lower on the page. Each anchor must have a unique name. Once an anchor is created, a link can be created on the page that jumps to the existing anchor.
Creating an E-mail Link
If you would like to create a link to an e-mail address (sometimes referred to as a mailto link), fill out this form. The Address should contain the user's e-mail address. The Link Text should contain the text of the link you will be creating. If you fill out the Subject field, when the link is clicked, some e-mail programs will pre-populate the subject line of the e-mail with the contents of this field. In most cases, it is best not to set a CSS Class on an item.
