The Link to a web page module allows readers to navigate to a different webpage.
This module behaves much like a hyperlink would in a document or web page.
A web page can be a website, intranet link or resource, as long as you are able to provide a URL for it. Bear in mind that an intranet link will only work while the version is being read within your company.
To begin select Manage for your version, followed by Interactivity.
Select the Link module category from the Interactivity Module palette.
Select Link to a webpage.
Click and drag the area into the position that you would like to make interactive.
Enter the website that you would like to link to into the URL field. You can also upload a resource using the Upload button and then select it from the drop-down list. If you have uploaded a resource and it doesn’t appear in the menu, press the refresh icon to refresh the menu.
Select Save to save your module.
Select the Settings palette for the following options:
Give the module a concise and informative name.
Specify whether the link will open in a new window (or tab) or the current one. It is usually best to open a web link in a new tab so your reader doesn’t lose what they’re currently reading.
Try using a Link to a web page module to display a PDF file in a new tab. This is ideal for distributing forms and documents to readers.
