WordPress Tutorials – Creating Hyperlinks

Hyperlinks give you the ability to link a word or words to another page on your site or any page on the web. To create a hyperlink from the text editor, highlight the word or words you would like to link from and click the Create or Edit Link icon in the toolbar. A popup dialog box will appear asking for you to first enter the page URL you would like to link to. Here, paste in or type the web address you would like your visitors to be redirected to when clicking the link.

Next, create a title. This title can be used to give more information about the link when it is hovered over. The box beneath the title gives you the option to either have the page open in the current window or tab that your user is in or to open in a new tab.

Below this are a few options for entering a page or post a link to from your website. In the search box you can begin typing the title of the page or post you would like to link to and a list of pages will populate for you to select from. Click the page or post from your site that you would like to link to and the URL and title fields will automatically populate. Click the Add Link button and the link will be added.

To remove a link, simply click on the link in the text editor and then select the unlink icon in the toolbar. Be sure and click the Preview Changes button to preview your changes or click Update to save your changes for immediate use.
