Hi,

Here are instructions to add a link to another website

  1. Click Websites Manager in the left navigation menu. Then, click Edit Site.




  2. Go to the page you want to add the link to another website. Then, double-click on the element that you'd like to link to another website. You can link text or images the same way. For this example, we'll show you how to link text to another website.


  3. With the text box selected, highlight the text that you want to be a link. Here's an example of selecting text:



  4. On the right, in Text Settings
  5. clickLink. You may have to scroll down to see the Link button.


  6. In the Link window:
    • What do you want to link to? Select URL (Web Address):. Enter the web address or specific page to link to in the URL field. We recommend copying the address for the website or page directly from the address bar in your browser.

    • How do you want the link to open? Select In another browser window.

    Note: If you select in the current browser window, your visitors will leave your page.



  7. Click OK. Then, Save and Publish your website to test the link on your live website.

Hope that helps!

Hi rome6183,

Welcome to the Community!

To redirect a domain to another website, you will want to use one line of code.



Add that html code into an html box on your homepage and change the last section to the site you want to direct to. Once you publish you will see your domain start to redirect to your other website.

Please let me know if you have any further questions on how to do this.

Thanks,

Chris

Chris,
This is exactly what I want to do, but I am a techno-dingbat. Would you be able to contact me and give me more simplistic directions?

Hi Norma8210,

I don't believe their is a way to sync between our platform and a 3rd party software. The only options I can think of is having a contact form where someone emails you a preferred time or a interactive calendar such as Google Calendar where people can sign up for specific dates (you can limit the amount of sign-ups per day).

Thanks,

Chris

Hi John -

The steps above should help you set up a link to go to a different website - in this case, a manufacturer site.

Thanks,
Aubrey

I would like to be able to create links to other websites on my own website. For example, let's say I have a short biographical text about myself and I want a visitor to my site to be able to click on the name of the university I attended and be directed to the website for that university. In other website constructino software I have used, I simply highlighted the text I want to contain the link, and then I typed in the website address in a separate menu, and this created the link.

Hi Kim,

I would either add a link to your Etsy store to your navigation menu or link the products to your Etsy store that you have listed on your current products page.

To link a image or text (highlight the text or select the image) and click the link button in the properties editor on the right.

Select url and enter the url for your where that product is located on your Etsy store.

Hope this helps, thanks!

Ehsan

Helpdesk phone lines are clogged with callers. Can you point me to a video I can follow. I updated two pages and they can't be seen in preview - so I did something wrong. Tried Help but still without luck. Need a tutorial video I can review.

Elizabeth6691.  Creating a standard link like shown in these instructions is the easiest way.  Sometimes people like to create a subdomain and point the subdomain to the other site.

Elizabeth6691,

This page does an excellent job of explaining it: http://smallbusiness.chron.com/can-connect-blogger-subdomain-27305.html

If you want to go ahead and create the subdomain, you'll find those steps here:

You would have to link something on your page as described above. Also, images and navigation menus can also be linked.
