Linking to a File or ImageIf 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....
- Type or copy/paste the text to be linked in the editor
- Click and drag your mouse over the text that you want to link to the file or image. The text should now be highlighted.
- Click on the LINK icon in the editor
- The Link pop-up box will appear with site files on the left and link properties on the right side.
- If your file is already uploaded, click on the file name in the My Files list and go to step 8.
- 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.
- Click on your file name and the name will appear in the URL field.
- 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".
- When completed click "Insert" or if you are editing an existing link "Ok".
- No spaces
- Use alphanumeric characters (avoid symbols etc., hyphen – and underscore _ are OK)
- Use logical filenames
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
firstname.lastname@example.org: an invalid filename because of the symbol contained in the filename
