Inserting links into your page content.
You have two options for inserting a link into your page content, depending on if the link is internal or external i.e. if you wish to link to a page that is inside or outside of your own website.
Firstly you will need to go to the Content Editor screen for the page that you wish to edit. (See Using the Editor).
