How to Create A Weblink in the EVO CMS

A weblink is a resource item where the content is a link to a either a local or internal page on your own website, or a link to an external website. Unlike an inline link which are applied to text or an image on a single page, weblinks are created as resource within your site and appear in your site's navigation.

Weblinks are not web pages.
Unlike web pages, weblinks do not allow for body text or images to be added to them. Rather, weblinks are used to add a link within your site's navigation to: 

  • another page withihn your own site
  • a site or a page that exists outside of your parish website (e.g. www.goarch.org, your parish's festival website)

Weblinks are identified in your document tree by a chain icon displayed before the document id number.

In this article, you will learn how to create a weblink and apply it to your site.
