Adding a file or document using the text editor

Step 1: Select The Link Text

Highlight the text you want to link

In the text editor, type the text that you want to use to link to the file we're about to upload. In this example, we'll use the text "2022 Annual Appeal".

Step 2: Create The Link

Click the link icon

Once you have typed the text you want to use as your link, highlight the text (click and drag) with your mouse, then, with the text highlighted, click the link icon (see above) in the text editor's toolbar (it looks like the link of a metal chain).  A popup will open...

Tip / Shortcut: With the text highlighted, you can hit "Ctrl+L" (or "Option+L" on a Mac) to achieve the same result.
Step 3: Upload The File

Click the Browse Server Button

If you are linking to a file, click the Browse Server button. Browse to the file you wish to link to, then select it. The URL field will be filled out automatically once you select the file.

Upload File Select file Select File

If the file you want to link to is not available on the website, you'll need to upload it. Navigate to the folder you wish to upload the file to (using the menu on the left), then click the "Upload" button. Select the file, then wait a few seconds (or minutes, depending on the size of the file you are uploading). Once it has successfully been uploaded to the website, you should see the file is available for selection now. Select it by double-clicking, or by RIGHT-clicking on the file and choosing "select".

New Window?

Target Tab New Window

If you would like your link to open in a new browser window or tab, click on the Target tab, then select "New Window (_blank)" from the Target dropdown menu. Typically you will want this since you are linking to a document, rather than a web page. This is a bit of an "advanced" setting, so if you're not confident, go ahead and skip this step. It's not essential.

All Done


Click "OK", and you're done. If you have more updates to make then continue editing, otherwise, go ahead and save the page. You're all finished!
