Linking to External Websites

Linking to an external site is really easy in Freeway.

  1. Highlight some HTML text or select a graphic and open the Hyperlink dialog from the Edit menu or press Command-k
  2. Select the External tab
  3. Select http: from the Protocol pulldown
  4. Type the rest of the address after the http:// that appears in the large field in the center of the dialog
  5. If you want the site to open in a new (blank) window, click on the Target pulldown and choose _blank.
  6. Click OK
It is good practice to specify the target _blank so that once the visitor has finished viewing the external link they can return to your site should they close the new browser window.
