52. About Links

The only tricky part about links is understanding that they can point to several different kinds of content and that the steps for creating or editing a link differ slightly, depending upon the type of content to which you're pointing. Links created or edited in Contribute can point to the following kinds of content:

  • Pages in your Contribute website.

  • New pages added to your site at the moment you create the link (see 58 About New Pages).

    KEY TERM

    Section anchor— An invisible marker to which a link can point. A link can point not to a whole page, but rather to a particular part of a page. Also known as targets, anchors, or bookmarks.


  • Other sites or pages anywhere on the Web.

  • Section anchors, or specific spots within a page, as when a table of contents at the top of a long page is made up of links that each point to a particular section or heading.

  • Email addresses already addressed to someone you have indicated in the link (opening a new message in the visitor's email program).

  • Files on your computer, which will download to the visitor's computer when the link is clicked. (Contribute automatically copies those files to the server so that the visitor is actually downloading a copy of the file from the server, not pulling a file straight from your PC.)
