I am trying to create a link on my web site to my LinkedIn profile page

I cannot see or find a widget for LinkedIn and being a bit of a technophobe - I am struggling as to how to do this

when I contacted LinkedIn about it they responded as follows:

"Creating a link will take some basic web coding, but can be done using a WYSIWG editor or other HTML tool – this really depends on how and where your website is hosted, and what technologies you are using. Most of the time, you can simply add:



can anyone help me with this and give me a simple step by step guide on what I need to do

thanks

Hello Robert

Absolutely!

As LinkedIn suggested, you can just create a link on your Yola website. With the Yola Sitebuilder it's super-easy, and you won't need to know HTML to do that. Here is our tutorial on how to add links to your website: Creating links. In order to insert the correct link destination, you will need to know the URL (internet address) of your LinkedIn profile. You will find this information in your LinkedIn profile.

Maybe you weren't thinking of a text link, but of linking from a LinkedIn icon to your LinkedIn profile? That's easily done as well! First you will need to get the icon as an image file from the internet. Users find this website helpful: findicons.com.

Download the icon you want from there to your computer, and then upload it again into your Yola File Manager by using the Picture Widget (choose the option "Upload new image"). Then click on "Edit" on the Picture Widget and then on the "Choose a Link" button. Enter your link into the "External link" field. Click on "Save"/"OK", and test it in Preview. Done!

Please let me know if you have further question.
