HTML Link Editor
Use the following HTML link editor to create links to other web pages. In HTML, links are created using the
<a> tag. The link editor below automatically creates this tag when you use it to create a link.
Also see the HTML Link Generator.
Understanding the Toolbar
If you have trouble understanding the buttons on the toolbar, just hover over the button - a tooltip will pop up.
In case you don't see the tooltip, here's what the icons stand for (in order of the icons):
Creates a hyperlink to a URL, email address, or an anchor within the same page.
Unlinks an existing link. Simply select an existing link and click this button.
This enables you to link to another part of the same web page. It requires the following steps.
- Place the cursor at the point in the web page that you'd like the anchor (i.e. the point to where the browser will jump to after the user clicks a link)
- Click the "Anchor" button
- Create a name for the anchor (i.e. "anchor1" or preferrably, something more descriptive)
- Highlight some text at another point in the document (usually prior to the anchor)
- Click the "Link" button
- Set the "Link Type" to "Link to anchor in the text"
- Use the drop down menu to select the name of your anchor (eg, "anchor1")
