Welcome back to day six of the Portfolio challenge. Hope you had a great weekend and are ready to move your Portfolio forward! Today we’re going to create two different types of links. First we will use the text formatting bar to create a link on a page, and then we will create a direct link within the navigation.
Linking text. To add a link to the text on the Bio and Contact page, click the name of the page in the navigation area.
Then, click Edit Page Content in the floating remote.
Optional: to customize the default style of links created throughout the site, on the remote, select Edit Global Styles . If you change settings, click Done to set the new default style for links throughout your site.
To assign a link to text, select the text and click the link icon in the pop-up format bar.
Add your link and choose whether or not to Open link in new tab.
Creating linked navigation. You can easily add a link in the navigation to quickly take your viewer to another social site such as your blog. Return to the home page, and click the Add Content icon in the left margin.
To change the style for the Link, click the pencil icon in the Navigation area, and choose Customize. Click the Links option and change the style and margins as desired. Don’t forget that you might want to change the rollover and active states too.
Note: you can also add a “mail to” link. I don’t have one on my site, but you would follow the same steps as above, but in the Link options dialog, enter the name of the link (Email Julieanne, for example) and then enter the mail address (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org, for example). The help system has additional information on adding a “mail to” link if those steps aren’t working.
To preview your site, click the Preview button at the bottom of the screen and test out the links. Click the icons along the bottom of the screen to preview your Portfolio on different devices. Because Portfolio uses responsive design, it will adapt its layout across devices of different different shape and sizes.
