Lesson 3. Creating Links > Inserting Email Links

Inserting Email Links

Providing a linked email address makes it easy for your visitors to contact you from a Web page. You should always include some method of contact that allows visitors to correspond or interact with someone in your organization.

Click at the beginning of the sentence “Some of the world's most notable lighthouses include:” and press Return (Macintosh) or Enter (Windows) to create a blank paragraph below the definition of Keeper. Place the cursor on the new paragraph line that was created.

You will insert an email link here, below the definition list for lighthouse components.

Click the Email Link button in the Insert bar, or choose Insert > Email Link.

The Insert Email Link dialog box appears, displaying options for text and email.


The Insert bar is open by default. If it is not visible, choose Window > Insert to open the panel or Window > Arrange Panels to reset the panels to their default positions.

In the Text text field, type Suggest more lighthouse terms. In the Email text field, type your email address. Then click OK.

The text appears on the page as a link. The Property inspector shows the email address in the Link text field when you place the insertion point within the link.

At the bottom of the document, select the text “Lights of the Coast” that is located to the right of the © symbol.

If you select text that is already on the page and then open the Insert Email Link dialog box, the selected text appears in the Text text field.

Contact information commonly appears at the bottom of a page, often near copyright information.

In the Link text field of the Property inspector, type mailto: immediately followed by your email address. Make sure you type the colon and that you do not leave a space between the colon and your email address.

You have entered an email link manually.
