Linking to a File or Image

If you would like to link directly to a file or image like this (an example link to our old pdf training manaul), here are the steps to follow....
  1. Type or copy/paste the text to be linked in the editor

  2. Click and drag your mouse over the text that you want to link to the file or image. The text should now be highlighted.


  3. Click on the LINK icon in the editor


  4. The Link pop-up box will appear with site files on the left and link properties on the right side.


  5. If your file is already uploaded, click on the file name in the My Files list and go to step 8.
  6. To upload a new file Click "Upload" and "Select Files" to find a file on your computer. Browse the computer for your file and click Open". The file will be uploaded into the files list. These files display in alphabetical order.
  7. Click on your file name and the name will appear in the URL field.
  8. On the right side you now have a few options for your link to your file. We highly recommend:
    -Title: give your link an explanation. eg. "Click here to go to yourFileName". This helps with Accessibility on your website. 
    -Choose how you want the file to open. We recommend "Open in a New Window".
  9. When completed click "Insert" or if you are editing an existing link "Ok".
Quick TIPS for Filenames
  1. No spaces
  2. Use alphanumeric characters (avoid symbols etc., hyphen – and underscore _ are OK)
  3. Use logical filenames
Examples
photo 1.jpg: not a good filename because it doesn’t describe the contents of the file, and the filename contains a space
redballoon.jpg: is a good filename, as you know exactly what the file contains and the name contains no spaces
red@balloon.jpg: an invalid filename because of the symbol contained in the filename
