Yes, you can use the link editor to create a link to your page:

1) typing the link text in a text widget and highlighting it
2) Click "insert link" on the text editing toolbar
3) A link editor will open up. Browse for the page you want to link to and click "ok"
To test that the link is working, save and preview your page.

For detailed instructions and other linking options, please check out our video tutorial on Creating Links: http://www.synthasite.com/video/creat...
or our text based tutorial on the same topic: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/c...

Please get back to me if this does not answer your question or if you had something different in mind.

Hi dice

The text editing toolbar displays along the top of your page when you have clicked on or in a text widget. If you cannot see the text editing toolbar this is because a text widget is not selected on your page.

Get back to me if this does not help you to locate it.

Best wishes

Hi Riley

I am really sorry you are having a hard time spotting this very important icon!

Let me see if I can help. Here's how to add links to your page:

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.

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: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/c...
We also have a video tutorial available if you would prefer it. Here's the link: http://www.synthasite.com/video/creat...

Let me know if you still can't find it!

Does the "insert link" icon it bring up a dialogue box when you click on it? It should bring up a box where you can select a link to a page, website, email address or file. When you are done creating your link, click ok. To test the link you have just created, save and preview your page.

Please let me know if you see the dialogue box I am referring to.
