You use the Properties panel to add hyperlinks to a Web page.
First highlight the words you want to appear as the link on a Web page.
Then type (or, preferably, paste) the Web address to which you want those words to link in the Link field of the Properties panel.
In the Link field you can either:
- Type or paste in a full Web address (URL), beginning with http://, to point to any page on the Web
- Type or paste in the name of a file you've created that's in the same folder as this file (or, if the file is in a subfolder, type in the name of that subfolder and then the file you want to link to, such as subfolder/otherfile.html, which would link to a file called otherfile.html that is in a folder called subfolder).
- Click the folder icon to the right of the Link field and navigate to the destination file you want to link to (before you do this, be sure you've named and saved the page you're currently working on, so Dreamweaver will know where this page is relative to the one you want to link to).
Then press the Enter key on your keyboard.
You'll see the words you selected are now highlighted in blue and underlined - like a hyperlink that appears on a Web page.
