Adding Links

Dreamweaver makes adding links easy. Simply highlight the text that you want to turn into a link and enter the link URL into the Link field in the Properties Inspector.

To illustrate let's add a link to ClassFiles/Dreamweaver/Exercises/hello-world.html:

  1. Open ClassFiles/Dreamweaver/Exercises/hello-world.html in Dreamweaver if it's not already open.
  2. Higlight the text "wikipedia".
  3. In the Link field in the Properties Inspector, enter "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hello_world_program":
  4. Save your page.
  5. Preview the page in your browser (File > Preview in Browser). The page should look like this:
  6. Notice that when you hover over the link, the cursor turns to a pointer and Firefox shows the URL to which the link points.
  7. Click the "wikipedia" link. It should take you to Wikipedia's page entitled "Hello world program."
