Hello Insights Group

I hope to clear up this confusion for you. There may have been a step overlooked when you were trying to add a link to your site. Can you please give these steps a try:

1. Drag and drop a Text Widget onto your screen. It is in the "Basic" folder on the Sidebar to the right of your screen.
2. In the Text Widget, type in the text that you want people to click on (this is your link text). Highlight the link text, here the word "link" has been highlighted, and then click on the Link button (it's the 10th button from the left in the Text Editing Toolbar, and looks like the link in a chain).
3. A Link Editor dialog box will open and you will be given four options: You can link to a page on your site; an external URL; an email address; or a file on your computer.
4. Click on "OK" and you will now have a link on your page.
5. To check that your link is working, preview your page and click on the link.

Please let me know if you have any further trouble with this.

Hello Insights Group,
Sorry to hear you are still struggling with this. Are you by chance trying to test this in the sitebuilder? To test whether or not your links are working, you will need to press the 'preview' button i your sitebuilder or save and publish your site for these changes to appear online.

If you continue to struggle, please share your URL with us as well as the page you have added a text link on. We will be happy to continue working with you on this.
