there are two ways to make a link on synthasite.

1. If you want to make a link in a text widget:


  • insert the text widget into your site, and write down the words you want to link to, and highlight them

  • in the text widget navbar (where you choose such things as the font, color etc... of your text. it only pops up when you write something in a text widget) you will see a button with a small picture that looks like a chain link. click on that button and a window should pop up.

  • from that window you can chose whether you want the highlighted text to link to another page on your site; a url from another site; an email address; or a file

  • pick the one that works best for you, then press ok. you now have a link in a text widget



2. If you want to make a link in an html widget:



I hope this solves your question

sorry, the second one is screwed up and i wasn't able to edit it quickly enough. follow this for the second one

2. If you want to make a link in an html widget:


  • insert the html widget into your site

  • insert this code into the widget:

    word or phrase goes in here

    then just customize it
    *note* be sure to replace the d's at the beginning and end of the code with the letter "a". I had to change them to d to make the code show up. otherwise it would be a link and you wouldn't see the code


  • for example: a link to my site will look like this

    Game Demon Arcade

    and in the end will look like this: Game Demon Arcade



I hope this solves your question

*reminder* don't forget to replace the d's with the letter a.
"a" is for "anchor"
