I want to add links to other sites, how do I do that?

Links are extremely useful for helping people to navigate your site. Links also help people to access other related websites to which you link, open a file or send an email. If you are going to have a successful website, it is vitally important that you learn how to create links.

Here's how to add links to your page:

1. In your Sitebuilder, go to Widgets > Popular.

2. Drag your Text Widget onto your page.

4. Highlight the link text (in the screenshot below the word "Click here" has been highlighted as an example).

5. Then click on the "Link" button (it's looks like a chain link).

  • File stored in this site
