Link to Other Web Sites

Add a link to your site for a web page outside the GroveSite environment. Examples include links to company sites or frequently used sites relevant to the current GroveSite.

How to add an External Link

  • Click 'Turn on edit.'
  • Click [new page]
  • Select page type = Link to another web page (external)
  • Click the Next button at the bottom of the form.
  • Enter navigation text
  • Enter the complete url of the external page. In most cases, the default option to 'open the link in a new window' will make navigation easier. If this is not checked, the page will open in the same window and the user would need to hit the back button to return to the GroveSite site.
  • Click the Next button at the bottom of the form.
  • Select page security = 'participants can see this page' OR 'participants can see and update this page.' Note: you may also want to set up a link just for Moderators. If so, select page security = 'only moderators/administrators can see this page'
  • Click the Next button at the bottom of the form.
  • Position the page within the list of current pages in your site.
  • Click the Finish button to save the new page.
