Adding Links in WordPress

The WordPress post and page editor makes it easy to add hyperlinks to other web pages from your content.

From the WordPress post or page editor, select the text that you want to be hyperlinked.

Once you have that text selected, click the hyperlink button in the toolbar.

This will bring up a box where you can enter the URL of your hyperlink and a title to be displayed on hover. You can also click this checkbox to open the link in a new tab.

If you’d rather link to existing content on your website, just click to expand this section. Now, you’ll see a search bar to search your site and a list of existing posts or pages. Clicking on one of the items in the list will change the hyperlink URL above.
Once you have your hyperlink URL ready to go, click the Add Link button. Now your selected text will have a link.
To remove the link, select your text again and click the unlink button. Now you’ll see that your link has been removed.
