Creating links and link categories

Create a category

  1. On the Manage Links page, click New Category.
  2. Enter a Name for the category.

    Tip  A good category name enables visitors to understand the general topic for that category. For example, the category “Online Publications” would logically contain links to online journals and publications.

  3. Enter a Description for the category.
  4. Click Save.

Create a link

  1. On the Manage Links page, click New Link.

  2. Select a Category from the drop-down list. Click New Category if you need to create a category for the link. In the New Link Category window, enter a Name and Description for the new category and click Save.
  3. Enter the link Title.
  4. Enter the URL or click Quicklink to insert a quicklink.
  5. To preview the link, click Preview.
  6. Select the Open in New Window check box if you want the link to appear in a new window when a user clicks it.
  7. Enter a Description for the link. The description displays below the link on the Manage Links and View Links pages.
  8. Click Save.
