The following is the HTML coding snippet used for my links that I updated our site. You can substitute the URLs and Names of the URLs that you want to make the links using the HTML5 Advanced in the Site Builder for the page you want to change in the body of the page where you need the links.


<h2>Useful links.</h2>
<ul><b>
<li>
<a href="http://www.fema.org/">Visit FEMA</a>
</li>
<li>
<a href="http://www.seminolecountyfl.gov/dps/">Seminole County DPS</a>
</li>
<li>
<a href="http://www.seminolecountyfl.gov/dps/ems/">EMS Fire Rescue</a>

Thanks for sharing. This code is not simply linking text. This code is used to create an HTML navigation menu instead of a simple text link.

Sorry, thought I was replying to request on the HTML coding for linking to other website links.

No problem at all. You can always post your own topic in the HTML snippets category as well, if you have other things people may find useful.

This is an example of how to add HTML coding to a page with an imbedded link to a text work in the page:

 

<h2>There is a link at the bottom of the page! It goes to a particular text</h2>

<p>In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since.</p>

<p><a id="Whenever">"Whenever</a> you feel like criticizing any one," he told me, "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had."</p>

<p>He didn't say any more, but we've always been unusually communicative in a reserved way, and I understood that he meant a great deal more than that. Etc...Reserving judgments is a matter of infinite hope</p>

<a href="#Whenever">Go to Whenever</a>

</body>

Which site? Have you checked to see if your link colors are set to the same as the background?

If you are wanting to create a text link, these are the steps. But if you are wanting to create a different kind of link, let us know.

Hello. I've always followed the instructions above for linking text without issue. However, just recently an issue has arisen.  After highlighting some text and clicking the Link button in Text Settings, the Link window opens up but no longer has a Link button choice on the bottom. The three available button choices are Remove Link, Cancel and OK

Please let me know how to fix this, so I can begin linking text again.

Thank You,

Jeffrey

Click the Anchor link > You'll see the Anchor Element. Place this element in the desired position on your page.

You can add a link to an image or text using the link options to a URL. Here are instructions on adding links. https://community.homestead.com/conversations/websitebuilder/websitebuilder-link-image/5f2a9b3358180958845e01fe

LINK AN IMAGE:

Produce an anchor link for the desired element, save and publish. Using your browser, navigate to the page and select the element. You'll see that the URL has changed to include the element's link address. Copy that URL and paste it in your Settings menu Link command.

If the image or text on the page has an anchor link, you can select that element and the URL will include that specific element. Using that URL address will target that specific element. For example: Select any element on the page and produce an anchor link for that element. Save and publish. Use your browser, navigate and select that element in your site. You will see that the URL address has changed to include the anchor linked item. Copy that URL and paste that as your target link in your Link command box in Image Settings or Text Settings.

Hello. Thank you very much for your reply. However, I believe there may currently be a software issue. 

Under the basic instructions "HOW TO CREATE A LINK:" it states "Select the text or image > From the image settings or text settings menu select Link". 

I've always done that without issue, however now in the text settings menu, there is no "Link" button choice. The only available button choices are Remove LinkCancel and OK.

Thank You,

Jeffrey

Hello, 

If you choose the "Remove Link" option and then try again, does it give you the option to link at that point?
