A hyperlink is when you see text on a web page that can be clicked because it is actually a link to a new page!
There are two ways to create a link on your page. First you need to ask yourself what your text editor looks like.
1. Do you see a toolbar?
This is text editor is called a WYSIWYG (Wizzy Wig). If you highlight a piece of text, you can click the button that looks like a chain link.
Click this button and add the URL you want to link to in the field provided that says URL.
There is also a keyboard shortcut. You can hold down ctrl+k (cmd+k on Mac). You can then add a URL.
2. How to manually add a hyperlink using html
If you are adding a hyperlink to your property's description or message template, there is no wyziwyg. To add one, you will need to add a little html tag around the link and the text you want guests to click.
Not a coder? Me neither. You can follow this model:
<a href="ADD URL BETWEEN QUOTE MARKS">Clickable Text</a>
- Feel free to copy this whole piece of code and paste into your property description or message template.
- Swap out the text between quote marks with the URL you want to link to.
- Where it says Clickable Text, delete this. Make the text say whatever you'd like. Sometimes its good to make that clickable text say Click Here or some other call to action.
