Adding links to your content, both internal and external, is very easy with Novi's content editor. There are a few different ways to create links. See below for information on how to add specific types of links.


To create a simple text link, follow these steps: 

  1. Click where you would like the link to go on the page. 

  2. Click on the hyperlink button in the text editor (see below). 

  3. In the modal that pops up, enter in the URL you'd like to link to, the text to display, the title, and the target of the link (opening in the same window or a new window).

  4. Save and your new link is created! 

Your link will look similar to this: Novi AMS

  2. Click on the hyperlink button in the text editor (see below).

If you would like to embed a link to an email, your URL should include the following:

  • mailto:{full email address}

Keep in mind that web scrapers like to get their hands on publicly available email addresses. We recommend that you limit the use of this feature to members-only pages or in cases where you are ok that a particular email may receive excess spam.


Best Practices

  • If your link is an internal link, meaning that you are linking to another part of your site, you do not need to include the "www.yourassociation.org" part of the URL. For example, if you wanted to link to your events page, you could simply set the URL as "/events" and the link will work.

  • If your link is external, we suggest setting the Target to "New Window." This way, your link will not pull visitors away from your site. It will open for them in a new window.

  • Your URL can also lead to a PDF, rather than another webpage. To do this, all you would need to do when creating the link is upload the PDF. Click on the folder/magnifying glass icon to the right of the URL section. This will take you to the file uploader. Upload your PDF, select it, and your link will open that PDF.
