“HOW TO” Link to a page without using full URL

When you are editing a custom page you have the option to add in a range of links, whether to an external website, a page in your website or a document download. This post focuses on the first two of these options.

Firstly find the URL you want to link to, either an external link or a page within your own website. For example:

Then go to the page you want the link to appear from and open the text editor. Start to type in your text, highlight the words you want the link to come from – for example highlight “click here”

Then click on the hyperlink icon

This opens a new window. Type in your URL in the URL box then click OK.

Simply update the page and then the link will work directly from your website when you click on the “click here”.

If you wish to do the same to link to an email address simply follow the instructions as above until you get to the link box.

Then click on the dropdown box next to protocol and select other. To include an email to be sent to you would type the following

In the URL box type in

Just choose the email address you want to use and this will work in the same way as URL’s
