To create a hyperlink, highlight the word or group of words you would like to link and click the ‘Insert/Edit Link’ icon in the visual editor.

In the popup dialog box enter the URL you would like the content to link to, a ‘Title’ describing the link and choose if you want the link to open in a new window.

When the link has been set the way you want it to appear click the ‘Add Link’ button.

To remove a link simply place your cursor on the link you would like to remove and click the ‘Remove Link’ icon.
