Fundamental to the structure of websites and the internet are hyperlinks between page destinations. There are multiple ways to create links in the Drupal Kit. This page provides both generalized and specific instructions for linking techniques.
To link between pages on your website, do not paste the URL of the web page as you would with an external link (above). Doing so would mean that if the URL of the page changes in the future, the link you created would point to a nonexistent destination. Instead, use the link autocomplete functionality shown below to find the page. This method ensures that the system stores the link as an internal reference.
In most contexts, you will have the option to add an icon from a predefined list, as shown below. Their purpose is to enhance the user experience by indicating link behavior. These options are managed by ITS and cannot be changed.
Authentication required icon - Indicates user must authenticate to access information
External link icon - Indicates user will leave current website
Right-facing caret - Holds no meaning; strictly decorative
If you are adding links to other pages within your site, one way to do this is through editing the HTML source. Click the “Source” button in the toolbar and edit the HTML source code in the body of the editor. For a page that links to mysite.com/main-page/sub-page, your URL should be as follows:
Make sure to include the leading slash, as above. Typing <ahref="main-page/sub-page"> will not work.
