To see the your links in action, publish your site and click the URL or element from your mobile or tablet. Links do not work from inside the editor.

Creating clickable URLs

Adding a clickable URL to your site means that visitors know exactly what page they're opening. You can add URLs to other pages on your site, or to external web addresses.
URLs that you enter directly into a text box automatically become clickable, which means that you don't need to manually add any links. 
Clickable URLs can currently only be created with an English language URL.

To create a clickable URL:

  1. Add text to your site.
  2. Click Edit Text.
  3. Enter the URL.

Do not add any other text into the text box, as this will make the URL unclickable

Hyperlinking text

As well as creating a clickable URL, you can also add links to regular text content. You can decide exactly what section of text you want to link, and even customize the color. 
Some popular text links include "Visit Our Store", or "Keep Reading".

  1. Click the text box in your editor.

  5. Click Done.
  6. (Optional) Change the color of your hyperlinked text:
    1. Click Edit Text.
    2. Highlight the linked text.
    3. Click the Color icon .
    4. Select a color from the color picker.
