    Talking Creating Hyperlinks

    Hyperlinks are text or images that can be clicked to bring the user to another web file such as a web page, images or any other file. They are the essence of the World Wide Web as they link pages within sites and web sites to other web sites. To create a hyperlink in BlueVoda, follow these steps:

    Highlight the text or image that will be the link and select Insert->Link from the menu bar or pressing CTRL+K.
    This will display the Insert Hyperlink window.

    Link to another page
    Enter the full URL (Internet Address) of the destination page in the URL box.
    External URLs MUST begin with "http://" or they will not work.
    For example, to link to the your home page, type "http://www.yourdomain.com/" instead of "www.yourdomain.com".
    So if the page you want to link to is called products.html, you must enter: http://www.yourdomain.com/products.html

    Link to a file
    To link to a file so your visitors can download it from your web site, enter the complete URL to the file.
    For example:
    http://www.yourdomain.com/downloads/myfile.zip

    or
    http://www.yourdomain.com/mydocument.doc

    Link to an email address
    Select mailto from the Link Type dropdown list.
    The URL box will automatically be updated with the mailto: prefix. Now enter the destination email address.
    For example:
    mailto:webmaster@yourdomain.com
    or
    mailto:webmaster@yourdomain.com?subject=Website Feedback

    Open the link in a new window
    To open the link in a new window you must specifiy the Target.

    For example:
    _blank (opens the link in a new window).
    _self (open the link in the current frame)
    _parent(open the link in the parent frame)

    Bookmarks
    Text and images can be set as bookmarks (also called "anchors") that can be linked to within a page. For example, if a page has seveeral new items, the news titles for each item can be set as bookmarks and a row of links can be added to the top of the page that will each skip down to those bookmarked sections. This method of using bookmarks allows visitors to your site to quickly access information by not having to scroll down the page to view the information they want.

    You can create a Bookmark by using the Bookmark tool from the Insert menu and place it anywhere in the page. Make sure you give the bookmark an unique name. Once you have placed the bookmark icon on your page, it can be selected from the Bookmark dropdown list.
