Hi there Pat,

We have made it a lot easier to add links to your page. You don't have to know HTML at all.

You can add links as follows:

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.

For more information on adding links, you can see our tutorial here: Adding links

Once you have done this you need to update your site for the links to be available to others on your site.

To update your site:

1. Log in to your account and open your site.
2. Edit your site as normal and save your work.
3. When you are done, click "Update my Site" and all your latest changes will be immediately added to your live site.

I hope this helps.
