Working with Links

A hypertext link, often called a link, creates a connection from one page to another page. On a web page, links are typically underlined and differentiated by color from the surrounding text. When a visitor to your website clicks a link in one page, another page opens.

Visitors use links to navigate your website. When you add a new page to a website, you have to add a link to the new page on an existing page. Then, users can click the link in the existing page to view the new page.

When you add a link to a web page or blog entry draft, the link is not live until you publish the page (see "Publishing Your Web Pages and Blog Entries"). Before you publish a web page or blog entry with a link, use the Preview in Browser feature to test the link and make sure it works.
