Create a link in a text area

Here's how you can create a clickable link in a text area. For example this could be a be a link to a Google document, a website address, a YouTube video or a document uploaded on your Sporty site.

The first step is to copy the link. 

If this is to a document uploaded to your Sporty site, follow the steps below to copy the document link.

Go to Site Settings > Documents and Audio Manager > find the document folder > click the page icon beside the document name...


Click green Copy button to copy the link ...



The second step once you have copied the link is go to the website page and text area you wish to display the link.

Add a text widget and type in the text you wish to link the document to, highlight the text then click the link icon in the editing ribbon  ...




This opens the "Link" pop up box. Paste the link you have copied into the URL field ...



Optionally you can then click the Target tab and select New Window. This will set the link to open in a new window.



Click OK, then Save to save the changes to the text area ...



When you view your page and hover your mouse over the text the cursor will change into a hand to show the text is linked. In the bottom left hand corner of the screen it will display the link.
