Hello Bruce,

To do this follow these steps.

1. First, type in the test you would like your visitors to click on to go to that URL.

2. Then highlight that text.

3. Click on "Link" in the the editing toolbar.

4. Select "URL (external)"

5. Then paste in the URL you want in that box.

6. Then click "OK"

Your link will then be added. You can do this to any text in a text widget.

Remember to save your page and then to click Preview next to refresh to see if the link works (the link wont work in the site builder).

I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Nathan

Hello Bruce, no problem. Those instructions will work. Type in "how-should-your-brakes-feel-under-foot" in the text widget you are using. Then highlight it and click Link in the toolbar that has the font colors and stuff and then paste in the URL after selecting "URL (external)"

Let me know if this helps.
