Insert Edit Or Remove Links Using The WYSIWYG Editor

About this task

The Insert/Edit Link button lets you insert a new link or edit an existing link in your message.

The Unlink button will remove the hyperlink. The link text will become normal text. You must highlight the link before you use the Unlink button to remove the formatting.

Procedure

  1. Highlight the text you want to turn into a link.
  2. Click the Insert/Edit Link button.
    A pop-up window will appear.
  3. Add the link URL in the Link URL text box.

    You can also click the Browse button next to the Link URL text box to use the file manager to find the object you wish to link to. Make sure to always add the http:// protocol on to the beginning of URLs. If you forget to do this, when you insert the link, a pop-up will appear asking if you would like to add the http:// protocol. Click Ok to add the protocol on to the beginning of your URL.

    For more information on using the file manager, see Uploading Files to Bronto.

  4. Click Insert to create the URL.
    This represents the minimum you need to do to insert a link. See below for an explanation of the additional settings you can use.

What to do next

Additional Settings

  • Predefined Links: The Link List pull-down menu contains convenient links to predefined pages in the application. Each link and the page that it points to is described below:
    • Manage Preferences URL: This option links to your Manages Preferences webform.
    • Unsubscribe URL: This option inserts a link to your Unsubscribe webform.
    • Forward to Friend URL: This option will link to your Forward to a Friend webform.
    • Web Version URL: This option provides a link that allows a contact to view the html version of this email in a browser outside of their email client. This may be helpful if the contact doesn't know how to load images, is seeing a malformed email due to rendering issues, or is viewing a text only version of the email. This should never be used as an image link.
    • Text Version URL: This option provides a link that allows a contact to view the text version of this email in a browser outside of their email client.
    • Confirm URL: This option links to your Subscription Confirmation webform. You can use this option in confirmation/subscription messages to allow contacts to confirm subscription to lists.
  • Anchors: The Anchors pull-down menu contains a list of the anchors that you have added to your messages. If you select an anchor, it will become the URL for your message. The Anchors pull-down menu will only appear if anchors have been added to your message.
  • Title: The Title text box lets you add a title to your link. When a title is added to a link, a tool-tip will appear containing the title when you mouse-over the link.
Note: Dynamic Code can be used in URLs, however, the URLs (links) will not be tracked. You will not be able to view click level metrics for links containing Dynamic Code.
