How to Create an External Link


Occasionally you may need to create an external link in the CMS to link from content on your site (like a listing on the Summary Template, or Faculty/Staff Directory Template) that allows you to link from a page on your site to a page on a site you do not have access to. Here's how to build one of these links:

  • Select the folder that you would like the link under, then select New > Default > External Link.
    select external link in UW CMS
  • Paste the url of the page you would like to link to in the field Link field. Click Submit.
    paste external link
  • Put an appropriate name in the System Name field. Select Submit.
    input system name for 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.
