How to add a hyperlink to your text

Typing out a domain, like www.idontdougly.co.nz/how-to-add-a-hyperlink-to-your-text, in a blog post or website page looks unprofessional. And we want to make it as easy as possible for our viewers to click through to find the information they are looking for.

So make the text link directly. Which means instead of putting “www.idontdougly.co.nz/how-to-add-a-hyperlink-to-your-text” you would put “how to add a hyperlink to your text“.

Note: underlined text is generally a hyperlink.

How to insert a link in WordPress:

  1. Go to the page you want to link to.
  2. Copy the URL. It should start with “http://”. Where do I find the URL?
  3. In WordPress, write the text you want to be a hyperlink. It is good to be descriptive and avoid the phrase ‘click here’. Then select the text.type-your-text
  4. Click the Insert Link button in the WordPress toolbar.wordpress-toolbar-make-link
  5. Paste the URL from step one into the Link URL box.
    Add the title of the page you’re linking to in the Title box.
    Tick the box for ‘Open link in a new window/tab’ if you’re linking to another website. So viewers can easily come back to your website.wordpress-link-window
  6. Then click Add Link.
  7. Click Publish once you’ve finished. And don’t forget to test the link too!

To link to a page or blog post on your website:

  1. In WordPress, write the text you want to be a hyperlink. It is good to be descriptive and avoid the phrase ‘click here’. Then select the text.type-your-text
  2. Click the Insert Link button in the WordPress toolbar.wordpress-toolbar-make-link
  3. Click on the arrow next to ‘Or link to existing content’. This will bring up a list of all your website pages, posts, products, events etc. Click on the relevant title.add-link-from-website
  4. Then click Add Link.
  5. Click Publish once you’ve finished. And don’t forget to test the link too!

Supply Chain Solutions Website

scswebsite_feature

I can finally announce the launch of the Supply Chain Solutions website! It’s been a long time coming … lots of work involved with this project.

I was responsible for not only designing and building the website but also compiling and writing all the content. Quite a difficult task as there’s a lot to understand with supply chain services. The most challenging task though was writing it all in language that everyday people understand. Like most businesses, Supply Chain Solutions use a lot of industry jargon. But we got there and this is one project I am happy to promote.

Of course, being a website there’s still a lot of work to do to but for now this is a great example of a professional corporate website!

ISS Re-branding

Integrated Security Services Ltd (ISS) were referred to me by Bryce from Leck Electrical.

ISS were in the process of purchasing new company vehicles and decided it was time to ‘freshen up’ the company logo. They were using various forms of the logo, which were developments over the years, but the company lacked consistency across all their marketing platforms. These are the variations of the logo that the company was using …

When ISS contacted me they wanted to see ideas that simplified the logo to just using ISS and the phone number. This logo was going to be used for stickers that are placed on premises they monitor, on the company vehicles etc. They wanted to modernise the font, but not drastically, while keeping the circular format which has become recognisable for the company. They also wanted a bolder colour and a colour that differentiated them from their competitors.

So I put together a few ideas …

After the team got together and decided which design they liked the best, we developed the logo – looking at colour options and possible layouts …

Revonet Re-branding

revonet_feature

Revonet’s business direction has changed a few times since it’s inception. RGDESIGN was hired to re-brand Revonet for it’s latest rebirth – Cloud Brokerage Services.

The brief was relatively simple – “Come up with a few ideas. I have no preconceived ideas but I want something clean, professional, perhaps a bit geeky, that will work for large corporates across many industries.”

No problem. RGDESIGN worked on a few ideas …
