Who: TB Coordinators and TB Primary Coordinators have access to do this

What: To place a link under a word in that text, wen writing or editing the text of a page in Community Weaver, follow these steps:

  1. In the editor write the text.
  2. Highlight the text that will become a link.
  3. Click on the icon in the editor menu that is a globe with a chain link, which will open a "Link" dialog box.
    1. If the link will go to another web site (not your Community Weaver) copy the URL of the other web page into the field URL. Note that the "Protocol" files will be "http://".   OR
    2. If the link will go to another part of your own timebank's Community Weaver, copy the part of the URL that is after the domain name. For example, if your timebank is "http://democw.timebanks.org" and you want to link to the page "http://democw.timebanks.org/members" then copy only  part of the URL  "/members" into the field "URL."  Note that the "Protocol" field will change to "<other>."
  4. Now choose the target.   Click on the tab  "Target."
    1. If you want the link to open in the same tab as the current view, you can leave it as "<not set>"  or choose "Same Window (_self)."
    2. If you want the link to open in a new tab, choose:  "New Window (_blank)"
    3. If you want the link to open in a popup window choose: "<popup window>"
    4. If you want the link to open in the top most window, choose: "Topmost Window (_top)."
  5. Click on "OK" to save the settings.

You can edit a link at any time and choose a different target or a different link.
