3 Ways to Add External Links (in text, navbar, link category)

There are 3 ways to add external links to your website.

Add Link to Text using Insert Link Icon

You can add links to any text editing screen.

These instructions are from this FAQ: How do I add a live, clickable link to some text?

You need to copy the full URL that appears in the address bar.
(for example ‐ http://www.yourname.com )

It is good to 'grab' (copy) the link (the url / website address) you wish to insert BEFORE starting the process below. The best way to grab this link is to open the site (or page) you want to link to. Copy the address that appears in the address bar (Control/C). 

Go back to your FASO control panel and insert it using these instructions:

  • log into FASO account Control Panel
  • click on the category or page where you want to add the link
  • enter some text such as Click here for more info
  • select/highlight your  text
  • click the Insert/edit Link icon in small tool bar above the text box (looks like a chain link)
    A new window pops up
  • paste (Control/V) the url/web address in the Link URL field
    Check out this FAQ: Should I set my hyperlink to Open in New Window?

  • Save Changes
