Hello Kader

I'm going to give you the steps on how to add links to your page, just in case something was missed along the way:

1. Drag and drop a text widget onto your page.
2. In the text widget type the words that you want people to click on (this is your link text).
3. Highlight the link text and then click on the link button (it's the 10th button from the left in the text editing tool bar, and looks like the link in a chain).
4. A link editor dialogue box will open up and you will be given 4 options. You can link to an email address, an external URL, a page on your own site or a file in your file manager.
5. Click on and edit the option appropriate for you.

You will then have a link on your page. To check that your link is working preview your page and then click on the link.

This is a brief explanation of how to add links, we have written a tutorial that shows the process in more detail. Here is the link: Creating Links.
For a step by step video on how to Add text links please see: Adding text links.

Please give this a try and if the issue still remains, do let us know! It would also be helpful if you could leave the URL to the page where this link does not work. Thanks.

Hi Jace,
