Hi SarahS

We have a great tutorial that covers this in detail: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/c...

Here are the basic instructions:

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 on your computer.
5. Click on the option appropriate for you.
6. Then type the URL or address of the site that you want to link TO in the appropriate box and click on OK.

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.
