Create an external link

Occasionally you may need to create an external link to link from content on your site that allows you to link to a page on a site you do not have access to.  Using this option you can also have the link appear in the left hand navigation. 

Here's how to build one of these links:

Select the folder that you would like the link under, then select add content, default, external link.

 
select external link in UW CMS

 

Put an appropriate name in the Link Name field.

 
input system name for external link

 

Past the URL of the page you would like to link to in the field Link Settings field. Click Save & Preview, then click Submit.

 

paste external link

 

The external link will now be listed in your site tree, as seen below. To link to it, simply select the external link option on a listing that you are developing and navigate to the External Link that you have just developed.
