    Tip

    In Cascade there are two kinds of hyperlinks, Internal and External links. Internal links are used when linking to pdfs, images, pages created WITHIN Cascade CMS. External links are used when linking to pdfs, images, pages created OUTSIDE of Cascade CMS. 

  5. Click on Ok.

    Tip

    To remove the link, place your cursor in the linked word or words. Click on the Remove Link icon from the WYSIWYG editor.


Linking External Links

  1. To link to something outside of Cascade, highlight the text to be linked and click on the Insert/Edit Link icon.
  2. In the Insert link window, select External as the Link Type.
  3. Type in or paste a URL in the Link Source field, e.g., https://miami.edu. Preferably, you should be copying and pasting the URL from your browser into this field.
