Lesson 5. Creating Navigational Links > Creating e-mail links

Creating e-mail links

Now you'll add a link to the appraise.html page that brings up an e-mail window with an e-mail address in it. Like URLs, e-mail addresses can be stored in the External tab.

1.
From the Site set () of the Objects palette, drag the Address icon to the External tab of the site window.

Always store your URLs and e-mail addresses in the External tab of the site window. If you need to change the value of a site URL or e-mail address that you've used on several pages, you can change it in the site window and GoLive will update all the pages at once.


2.
Double-click the Address icon in the site window to change the Inspector to the Reference Inspector.

3.
In the Name field of the Reference Inspector, enter a name for the address, and press Enter or Return. For example, change “untitled address” to “Anne's Address.” Although it's not required, entering names helps you manage addresses in a site.

4.
In the URL text box, change the text after “mailto:” to a real e-mail address, and press Enter or Return. For example, change “mailto:untitled@1/” to “mailto:AnneSmith@mycompany.com”. Make sure that you leave “mailto:” in the text box and that there are no spaces between it and the e-mail address.

5.
In the appraise.html page, drag to select the text “e-mail us” at the bottom of the page.

6.
Click the Create Link button () in the Text Inspector.

The link is highlighted and underlined. Now you can attach the text as a link to the e-mail address you just created.

7.
Drag from the pick whip button () in the Text Inspector to the Address icon in the External tab of the site window.

8.
Choose File > Save.

9.
Click the Preview in browser button () on the toolbar to view your page. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the e-mail link to display an e-mail editor.

10.
Close your browser.

11.
Return to GoLive and close appraise.html.
