How to insert a link to an email address

Insert link to an email address

Linking to an email address is very similar to linking to an intranet page.

  • Step 1: Click "Edit" in the top right to go into edit mode on the page.
  • Step 2: Use your cursor to highlight the text you want to make into a link. Or just set your cursor where you want to insert the link.
    • Example"If you have questions, please email ThoughtFarmer."
  • Step 3: Click the "Insert link" button in the content toolbar to bring up the link dialog. (The "Insert link" button looks like a set of three tiny links in a chain.)
  • Step 4: In the pop-up box, select "Email address." Type in or paste the email address you want to link to.
  • Step 5: The "Link text" box at the bottom of the link dialog contains the text that will display as the link. Click in the "Link text" box and type new text if you want to change the link text.
  • Step 6: Give the Link Manager a second to test and verify the address and then click "Insert Link" in the lower right corner of the search box. The pop-up box will close and you'll see your text has changed color and is underlined.
  • Step 7: Continue editing or click "Save" at the top of the page.
