Tip: Joomla's built-in content editor is fairly basic. We highly recommend JCE Editor and this tutorial assumes you are using it (if you have a Digital Bloom website, you will already have this installed.) A separate tutorial will demonstrate how to install JCE.
Step 1 - Create or Edit a Joomla Article
Step 2 - Select Text or Image
Select the text or image that users should click on.
Step 3 - Click on the Link Icon
Click on the Link icon.
Step 4 - Specify a Link Destination
You can add either an external link (i.e. to a webpage on another website) or an internal link (i.e. to a Joomla article on your own website):
- EXTERNAL LINK: Simply type or copy & paste the URL to the page you would like to link to.
- INTERNAL LINK: Click on Menu - it will expand to display the menus on your site. Next, select the menu containing the article you wish to link to (this will often be called "Main Menu"). Finally, click on an article's title
Step 5 - Insert the Link
If you would like the link to open in the same browser tab or window, simply click Insert. If you would prefer that the link opens into a new browser tab or window, first select Open in new window from in the Target dropdown and then click Insert.
Step 6 - Save
Finally, save your work. Click Save & Close if you are finished with the article, or Save if you wish to continue editing the article.
