If your site is using DocMan to manage all of its documents then the easiest way to link to all of these documents is to use the advanced link manager within the editor to browse to these documents that are stored within the system and the website.

 

  1. Once again, highlight some text and click on the insert/edit link icon from the tool bar.

  2. When the advanced link window appears, click on the DocMan icon from the display menu. Clicking on the + sign will expand the structure of your DocMan file system.
  3. Navigate through the file structure until you find the file that you need to link to.
  4. Click on the document and the editor will generate the required code to link to the DocMan document.
  5. Click insert and then save your article

From time to time, you may need to link to another part of your server, pr to another website entirely.

 

A link to another website (hyperlink) may be inserted into an Item as follows:

  1. Open the Item you wish to add a link to:
    K2 > Items > selected Item

  2. Locate and highlight the text or image you wish to use as the link.
  3. Select the Insert/edit link button on the JC Editor.

  4. There are 3 fields in the Insert/edit link screen. The main attributes that should be set are in the General tab:
    • Link URL: Enter the full URL (Uniform REsource Locator) of the target website:
      eg. http://www.google.com.au/
    • Target: Defines how the link will open. This is used as the target attribute in HTML.
    • Title: A name for the link. This is used as the title attribute in HTML and is necessary to ensure accessibility.

  5. Select Insert to create the link. The link will now be displayed in the Item text.

* Clicking the Cancel button closes the screen without inserting a link.
