Hi!

I have created a HTML table. I need to be able to add links inside the table and am not sure how to do it. I know how to add regular text while editing the HTML box, but if I wanted to have a link to another site, i.e. www.yahoo.com, but I just wanted to put Yahoo and have it be linked to the site, how do I do that within a HTML table?

Thanks for your assistance!

It sounds like adding a text widget might be the way for me to go, because I will have close to 100 links to add and it would be too time consuming otherwise. Can you tell me how to add a text widget to my html table? Would I then be able to link just like I do in a normal text box on Synthasite?

Thanks

Hi Katie,

It's impossible to put a text widget inside of an html widget. What I suggest is creating a template for yourself and just filling in the information so that you don't have to type every word. Just copy and paste, then fill in the appropriate information.

So for example, you can use the following template
(remove the <!--- and ---> before use):

<!---
<a href="http://name.com">name&lt;/a>&lt;br>
<a href="http://name.com">name&lt;/a>&lt;br>
<a href="http://name.com">name&lt;/a>&lt;br>
<a href="http://name.com">name&lt;/a>&lt;br>
<a href="http://name.com">name&lt;/a>&lt;br>
<a href="http://name.com">name&lt;/a>&lt;br>
<a href="http://name.com">name&lt;/a>&lt;br>
<a href="http://name.com">name&lt;/a>&lt;br>
--->

(note: the brs are line breaks and will cause your links to align vertically. If you want the links to appear horizontally, remove the br's and add a space.)

Just copy and paste that code in between the td's of your table wherever you want the links to appear.

Then just modify with the right information.
for example, if you want to link to Yahoo, just pick where you want the link to be.
Then, for "http://name.com" type in "http://yahoo.com"
And, for name type in Yahoo
And repeat for every link.

If you want the link to open in a new window, the html will look like this:
<!--- <a href="http://name.com" target="_blank">name</a><br> --->

You can learn more about links in my tutorial at:

In my opinion, this is a lot quicker than doing it in a text widget. There are no opening windows, just copy and paste and add information accordingly.

Just ask if you need something clarified.
