The Link to a web page module allows readers to navigate to a different webpage.

This module behaves much like a hyperlink would in a document or web page.

A web page can be a website, intranet link or resource, as long as you are able to provide a URL for it. Bear in mind that an intranet link will only work while the version is being read within your company.

  • To begin select Manage for your version, followed by Interactivity.

  • Select the Link module category from the Interactivity Module palette. 

  • Select Link to a webpage.

  • Click and drag the area into the position that you would like to make interactive.

  • Enter the website that you would like to link to into the URL field. You can also upload a resource using the Upload button and then select it from the drop-down list. If you have uploaded a resource and it doesn’t appear in the menu, press the refresh icon to refresh the menu. 

  • Select Save to save your module.


Select the Settings palette for the following options:

  • Title
    Give the module a concise and informative name.

  • Target
    Specify whether the link will open in a new window (or tab) or the current one. It is usually best to open a web link in a new tab so your reader doesn’t lose what they’re currently reading.

Top tip!
Try using a Link to a web page module to display a PDF file in a new tab. This is ideal for distributing forms and documents to readers.
