Link to an External website

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:
    • 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.
