I'm trying to link my class registrations/bookings with mindbody.com to my website so that when clients want to register for classes they just click on the link provided.

<a href="http://linked-domain/page">Text you wish to display</a>

This is a generic outline that is used commonly for these kind of links. If you wish more specific info I'm happy to work with it. I see mindbody.com is not a Yola site and I don't know your other site name so I can't give this to you upfront.

The link you gave me http://clients.mindbodyonline.com/ws.... is a secure open link. There is nothing on that page that is directly viewable. Your other site http://www.rhythmzdancefitnezzinc.com/ is not opening at all.

Paste the above snippet into an HTML widget on your Yola site where you need the link to appear. You can edit the text to anything you wish.

No.
Please drag an HTML widget onto your Yola page where you wish the link information to appear. Then copy the snippet of code I posted and Paste this into the HTML widget.

Save this and then publish your site again.

I'm not sure that the text link is working at this time so the option I gave you is the most direct way of doing this.

Hi Laulieta

I was able to open your URL https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/AS... that you want to link to from your Yola website, so it should be no problem set it up as a link.

To add a link to your Yola website, please follow these steps:
  1. First copy the URL that you want to link to. I presume this is https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/AS..., correct?

  2. Open your Yola website in the Sitebuilder.

  3. Drag and drop a Text Widget on your page.

  4. Click into the Text Widget and type the text that you want to make a link, e.g. "Please click here to register".

  5. Highlight the whole "Please click here to register" sentence and click on the Link icon in the text editing toolbar above.

  6. Check the external link option.

  7. Now paste the URL that you have copied before into the field provided for an external link.

  8. Click on "OK" in the bottom right corner.

  9. Click on "Save" in the blue menu bar on the right, and then on "Preview".

  10. Check in Preview if your link is working.


If this doesn't work, please let me know.

If you prefer to add a picture link, you can find detailed steps on how to add text and picture links to your Yola website in this tutorial: Creating links.
