Text hyperlinks

If you have a Redback Graphics installed CMS website.

Firstly, go to the web address or page you want to link some text to and “copy” the web address from the browser. You can then “paste” that address when inserting the link as described below.

Login to your Dashboard, under “Dashboard”, click once on “Pages”, then once on the page title of the page you want to add/edit a link.
In the editing box that contains your page content, double-click the text you want to link (or highlight the text with your cursor), then choose the icon to “Insert/edit link” (in line of icons above editing box), then insert the URL of the web address or page you want to link to. Then click the “Update” button to update the page. To link to an external website, while editing the link, choose from the “Target” options, “open link in new window” to make the browser open a new window for the linked website.

Adding an Email hyperlink
Select the text you want to create an Email link to, then choose the icon to “Insert/edit link”. Add link of mailto:info@redbackgraphics.com.au (your email address preceeded by “mailto:”, no spaces) and the link is done. Click Update to update the page as normal.

Tip 1
It’s always handy to have another browser window open to view the “public” side of your website to see the changes without having to log in and out of your Dashboard to see the public website. The changes will be live immediately. Use CTRL+F5 in your live website browser window to force a refresh of the web page you are viewing to see the updated link.

Tip 2
Always backup your website before doing any updates until you are very familiar with updating pages and images etc.
