4. Links > 4.2. Adding a Link

Adding a Link

If all that talk of links got you confused, don’t worry. Links are confusing, and that’s one of the best reasons to use Dreamweaver. If you can navigate to a document on your own computer or anywhere on the Web, you can create a link to it in Dreamweaver, even if you don’t know the first thing about URLs and don’t intend to learn.

The Property inspector provides three ways to add links on a Web page.

Figure 4-2. The Property inspector provides three ways to add links on a Web page.

Browsing for a File

To create a link from one a page to another on your own Web site, use the Browse for File button on the Property inspector (see Figure 4-2) or its keyboard shortcut (see the steps below). To browse for a file in Dreamweaver, you use the same type of dialog box that you already use to open or save a file, making this the easiest way to add a link. (To link to a page on another Web site, you’ll need to type the Web address into the Property inspector. Turn to Section 4.2.3 for instructions.)
