How to Create a Link in WordPress

These instructions work for both posts and pages in WordPress.

  1. Type the words that are going to link somewhere.
  2. Select those words with the mouse.
  3. Click the editor button that looks like a link in the chain. (This button doesn’t get activated till you select the text.)
  4. Fill in the Link URL box. To link to a web page, the address should be: http://www.whatever.com. Don’t forget the http://. To make the link trigger an email to someone, remove the http:// from the Link URL box and type mailto:someone@whatever.com.
  5. Click Insert.
  6. Click Publish/Update back in the Add New Post/Edit Post screen.

You can link a picture too. Just insert the picture as usual, and then click it picture once (in the editor) and then follow steps 3 to 5 above.

We'd love to hear from you!

We are using Contact Form 7, instead of the contact form that is built into the theme.
