 http://digitalartanddesign.org

… and put a link to this site in your work!



Step #2: Absolute Link ~

Open your current project in Dreamweaver type something like: "Click here to view some interesting links."


Step #3: Highlight the Text ~

Highlight the part of your text you want to be clickable …

… open your Properties menu, if necessary - (go to: Window > Properties or hit the keyboard shortcut Cmd+F3) and paste the copied address in the Link box.


Remember ~

Absolute Links have a complete address from the internet like this: http://www.goggle.com
