Adding a normal link:
To add a normal link to a page, use the following code:
Then you can make a copy of one of your existing pages and name it "newpage.htm".
IMPORTANT TIP: To be sure you are linking the exact file name: In Windows Explorer find and highlight the file you want to create a link for. For example, you have made a copy of the "about.htm" and you have named it "company.htm". Or perhaps you have a PDF file named "July 28th 2005-Quarterly Commitment Report.pdf". Highlight this file, then on your keyboard select the "F2" key. Now hit "copy" on the menu and the ESC (so you don't rename the file). Now you can paste the exact link name into your HTML page or .js file rather than having to re-type the name for the link. On some Microsoft keyboards you will need to click the "F Lock" key first to do the rename.
Adding a link to another website:
To add a link to another website like "Visit Yahoo!" for example, use the following code:
Adding an E-mail link:
This is how the above will appear on your webpage:
Adding links to other file types:
You can also add links to other file types like .pdf, .wav, .wmv, .rm, .ram, .jpg or any other file type you normally see on the web. You will use the same basic code as the "normal link" seen above. Below are a couple of examples:
<a href="yourfile.pdf">PDF file name goes here</a><br>
<a href="yourvideo.mp4">MP4 movie file name goes here</a><br>
<a href="yourvideo.wmv">WMV movie file name goes here</a><br>
<a href="yoursound.mp3">MP3 song name goes here</a><br>
<a href="yourpicture.jpg">JPG image name goes here</a><br>
Then you will place the file you are linking to in your website folder. When another file type is opened by one of your users the appropriate application will open on the users computer. Keep in mind that for example, if you click on a .wmv movie file it may open windows media player on your computer, but it might open quicktime on another computer. It all depends on what application is associated for which file on the given computer.
Clickable phone links:
All templates include a file to add your phone number in. This will be in the "contact.htm" or the "contact.js" or the "phone.js". The phone number is already clickable on Apple mobile devices, however, to make this clickable on more devices edit the phone link as follows:
NOTES: When testing your template on your hard drive with Internet Explorer, the links to ".pdf", and other document types may not work in some cases. This will be resolved once the site is uploaded. Try testing your site in another browser, such as Firefox, to ensure the links are functioning properly.
