I have tryed linking a page not on my Site list to another page. It dont do nothing. Can we link the pages that we set as not being shown in navigation bar to the pages that are being shown? For example. I made 2 pages . ones in my navigation bar and one is not, I have them both saved and published. I tryed to make a link from the One page buy saying click here and point it to the page that is not on my navigation bar. And nothing happenes.

Hello, when you put in the Click Here on the text widget, you have to highlight the whole Click Here and then click on the Link button and then select "Page" and select your page to link to. You can add as many links as you want to your website. All websites have links!

If you need more instructions, let me know.

I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Nathan

Hello freemoneylinks,

Could you post the following information so that we can take a look:
1. What browser you're using and if using a different browser has the same issue?
2. Please post a link to the page you're trying to add the link to as well as point out where you want to add the link?

Hi freemoneylinks

Are you clicking on "OK" after you add the link in that dialog that pops up? Also are you trying to click it in the site builder or in the published version? In the site builder, links are not clickable.

Sincerely,
Nathan

Hi, it doesn't have to be in the menu for it to work. You CAN'T click on it inside the site builder you have to either click on "Preview" or go to the published version and then click the link.

So when you click on it nothing at all happens? Or does it say "404. That page wasn't found"?

Hello Freemoneylinks

I'm wondering if there was a step that was overlooked when trying to add your links? Can you please give these steps a try:

1. Drag and drop a Text Widget onto your screen. It is in the "Basic" folder on the Sidebar to the right of your screen.
2. In the Text Widget, type in the text that you want people to click on (this is your link text). Highlight the link text, here the word "link" has been highlighted, and then click on the Link button (it's the 10th button from the left in the Text Editing Toolbar, and looks like the link in a chain).
3. A Link Editor dialog box will open and you will be given four options: You can link to a page on your site; an external URL; an email address; or a file on your computer. In your case, you would select to link to a page on your site.
4. Click on "OK" and you will now have a link on your page.
5. To check that your link is working, preview your page and click on the link.

Please let us know if you're still having trouble with this.
