How do I insert a text link?

Text links offer a variety of ways to build interactions into your website. For example, you can link to other pages on your homepage or even an email address.

Proceed as follows:

  • Highlight the text you want to link to
  • The blue toolbar appears. Click on the link icon (see image below)
  • Select the type of link you want
  • Complete the settings of the selected link type and click on “Insert link”

With the chain icon on the left you add a link, with the open chain on the right you remove the link.

If you link to another website or one of your social media profiles, we recommend that you activate the “Open link in new window” setting. You can find the setting where you make the link settings.

How do I remove a text link?

  • Highlight the text you want to unlink
  • The blue toolbar appears. Click on the remove link icon. It’s just to the right of the paste link icon.
  • The link is now removed.

Change link appearance

Control how text links look and what happens when you hover over them. The appearance of the text links is stored in the design settings.

  • Open the ‘Theme Settings’ in the top left corner of the editor
  • Navigate to ‘Links’ on the far right
  • Now define here how the links look normally and how they look with mouse hover

In order for a link to be visible to users, it stands out from the normal text. This is usually done using a different color and e.g. B. a line below when you hover over it with the mouse pointer. This signals that the text is interactive.

Types of links for text

There are four different types of linking available for text,

  • Internal Page: Link to a page on your site
  • External URL: Link to any URL
  • Email: A new email is automatically opened with the email address you entered as the recipient at the user.
  • File: If you click on the link, a file specified by you (which you store in your file manager) will be downloaded.
