Enable your visitors to navigate to a website with the click of a button, using a ‘Link to a webpage’ module. Direct traffic to your website, add a hyperlink to your intranet, or link to other PageTiger documents. The possibilities of ‘Link to a webpage’ really are endless; it's the perfect solution to encourage more reader engagement!
How to add a Link to a webpage module
Navigate to a Document.
Select ‘Interactivity’ for the Version of the Document that you want to work on.
The Version will then open in Interactivity mode and the Interactivity palette can be found to the right of your page.
Select the ‘Link’ module type from the ‘Add Interactivity' palette.
Select the 'Link to a webpage’ option.
Click and drag out the area to add to your page - this is the clickable area that the visitor will select to open the webpage.
Type or paste in a website link into the 'URL' field.
Select 'Save' to save your changes.
The Settings palette will activate when any module on a page is selected. You can then apply settings, such as the link target.
The 'Title' field is set by default, but it's important to update it to something unique that reflects the interactivity - for example, 'Link to PageTiger website'. Descriptive names make it easier to identify the interactivity in your document, which is particularly helpful if you're using lots of the same module type.
A tooltip is a short piece of text which appears when a cursor is positioned over a module. It can be used to provide a brief description or explanation of the module - for example 'Link to PageTiger website'.
Specify if you would like the link to open in a new window or the current one (which is where they are viewing your document).
Focus Outline Colour
If Accessibility has been enabled for your document, this option can be used to choose the colour of the Focus Outline Colour. Focus Outline Colour is the colour of the outline that displays around the piece of Interactivity being viewed when a visitor uses the Tab key to navigate around a document.
3. Clickable Area
Position X & Y
Adjust the position of the clickable area. 'X' sets the position of the left edge and 'Y' sets the top edge.
Width & Height
Adjust the width and height of the clickable area. The size is measured in pts.
Link to Panel
Link the module to a Panel in your document. Once linked, the module will move with the Panel if it is repositioned or resized.
