To make any text a link, it is necessary to enclose it inside the appropriate tag. "Tags" in HTML (HyperText Markup Language "hypertext markup language") are recorded in a special way the user browser, which is the source code of a web page. These instructions describe the appearance and location of all elements placed in the page. Tag that forms a hyperlink consists of two parts (opening and closing) and look perhaps like this:<a href="page.html">Text link</a>Here <a href="page.html"> is the opening tag of the link </a> closing, and "link Text" is the text that will be seen by the visitor of the page. In the start tag recorded information about the address where the visitor will go when you click the link. Such information is called "attribute" of a tag, to denote ' links are the href attribute. If the address is written in this short form (only the page name or folder name plus the name of the page), the browser will automatically add it to the address of the current page. This option records ' counting from the current page, called "relative" and is used only for links to documents within the same website. 'Links to other websites are always written in full are called "absolute". Sample:<a href="/index.html">Text link</a>
Now you are familiar with the minimum needed for writing links can make a text link and paste it in the page code. To do this, first open the page in the text where you want to place a link in any editor. If your site is equipped with a control system, then it must be a page editor that allows you to play online directly in the browser. If the management system of the website, you can also use any simple text editor such as Notepad. But in this case you will need to first download the page file, and after editing, upload it back.
If you use the online page editor control system, after opening the desired page, you will have two options:- if the editor is equipped with the visual editing mode, you can highlight the text, click on the toolbar button "Insert link" and print its address;- if visual mode (sometimes called WYSIWYG - What You See Is What You Get, what you see is what you get"), then you need to insert in the page source code you have prepared in the first step.After this will save page with changes made.
If you are using a plain text editor, then download the page to edit is easiest via the file Manager, which allows users to upload and upload all the necessary directly through the browser. He should be in the control panel of your hosting company. Complete most of the content management system also it has. Another way to move files to the server and back - a specialized program that uses the FTP data transfer Protocol called FTP client. Online you can find many of these programs - both paid and free. This method to download the page file is less convenient as it requires installation, familiarization and setup the software. In this case, you will need to know the email and password for FTP server your website. And if not - create in the web hosting control panel.Downloaded the page open in a text editor and paste prepared in the first step of the HTML code. Then save the changes and then upload the page back to the server the same way downloaded.
