Making links


Making links on Physiopedia pages is important because it allows our readers to find other relevant pages on the Physiopedia website as well as related resources outside Physiopedia.

Detailed instructions

To make links on a page follow the steps below.

  1. Click on the Edit tab to edit your page (remember, you need to be logged in to access the Edit link).


  2. Using your mouse highlight the words that you intend to turn into the link.

  4. A pop-up box will appear. Type the name of the internal Physiopedia page that you are linking to under Search Pages (a list of pages to choose from will appear) OR the full url for the external web page under External Link.
