How to Create a Link Using the Icon
The link button allows you to associate a word, phrase, or even an image with an external website. For example, if you quote a Wikipedia entry in a blog story, you can make it so the words "In this Wikipedia article" can be clicked to instantly connect with that page. Let's try that.
In this example, step one will be to type the words, "In this Wikipedia article"... Then, by right clicking your mouse and dragging it across those words in the text, it will highlight what words will make up the link. Now release the mouse and click on the link icon. This will bring up the following popup window:
Now paste the link into the URL field. And press OK
Easy as pie! (mmmm.... pie...)
To unlink the text from the selected website, simply highlight the text again and click the "Unlink" icon It is important to unlink a link before relinking to another URL or the edit program may 'remember' the wrong link.
The Anchor icon is used for creating internal links on your site. It is handy for linking to sections farther down the page, rather than having your readers have to search for the section. Clicking the Anchor icon will result in this popup being displayed:
By putting a name in this field, "bob", for example, you can link to it in the link window under the "Link Type" drop-down menu where you would select the "Link to anchor in the text" option.
