Linking to the Document
There are two different places you can have links, in your running text (the “Main
Content Area”) and in your Sub-Navigation.

To Make A Link in the Running Text of Your Site:
1: Highlight the text you want as a link.
2: Right-click on the highlighted text. Select “Hyperlink” from the pop-up menu.

3: Ignore every field except for the one marked “URL”. Under “URL”, to link to your
document make a link that looks like this:

http://www.buffalostate.edu/officename/documents/nameofdocument.ext

where "officename" is the name of your office or department, and "nameofdocument" is
the name of your document (i.e. polka.doc, hooray.pdf, etc).


To Make A Link in the Navigation of Your Site:
1: In the Site Map, on the left, click on the page you want the link to appear on.

2: Right-click on this and select New > Page from the pop-up menu.

3: Under “Create a new page named:” type the name of your link. Under “Page Type”
select “Link only - for use in navigation” from the dropdown menu. For “Layout” select
the name of the layout you are currently using (i.e. orangestripes.xsl, orangelion.xsl, etc).
Click “Create”.

4: You now have a new link. On the page you just created, under “Link text”, enter the
same name that you used in Step 3 for “Create A New Page Named”.

4: Under “Link URL”, in order to make a link to your document, you should make a link
that looks like this:

http://www.buffalostate.edu/officename/documents/nameofdocument.ext

where "officename" is the name of your office or department, and "nameofdocument" is
the name of your document (i.e. polka.doc, hooray.pdf, etc).



Some Additional Important Information:
1: The link will not work in preview mode, so don't be alarmed. If you format the link as
outlined above, it will always work.

2: This link will only work if the document has been uploaded to the "documents"
directory of your Web site. To make sure that this link works, be sure to select
"documents" instead of "Images" for the location you want to upload the document to.

3: Do not include any spaces in the file name. This works much better when making
links. So name a file something like "PolicyFor1998.pdf" instead of "Policy for
1998.pdf".
4: It's always a good idea to let people know they may be clicking on a PDF or Word
document. It's also a good idea to let them know the size of the document. This can be
found out by right-clicking on the documents, and selecting "Properties" from the
window that appears. Under "Size" you'll see something like "153KB" or "1.2MB".
That's the size of the document. You'll want to alert users to this, so place a (PDF) in the
link if it's a PDF document. If it's a Word document use (Word) after the link. An
example would be:
