This is a video tutorial on how to add a link using WebYep, the best content management tool I’ve found for small business owners.
Here are the basic steps:
1. Unlock WebYep
2. Click on the element you want to modify
3. Create the “anchor text”
4. Copy the destination URL
5. Select the “anchor text”
6. Select the link tool
7. Paste the destination URL
8. Update/Save your work
9. Test the link
Two extra tidbits:
To add a link to an email address: If you want to add a link to an email address, so that when visitors click on the email address it opens their mail application, you need to use this link formatting:
This means rather than putting “http://www.blah.com” in the URL field, you put “mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org”, replacing what comes after “mailto:” with the desired email address. WebYep has a built-in email obfusticator, which means that email addresses are hidden from spam searchers.
To add an on-page anchor: If you want to link to a place on the same page that has an “anchor”, you simply put:
inside the URL field. Note the anchor needs to be set up before hand.
