About the Instruction Manual

Most aspects of building and editing your artHIVES website should be self evident by the presence of onscreen prompts and instructions. This instruction manual is designed to compliment the general intuitive design of the artHIVES editing system. Advanced users may find little reason to consult this manual, however it is recommended that all users read the Troubleshooting section.

Creating Links

You can create links to other webpages using the Insert/Edit Link tool in most of the Rich Text Editors on your site. This function has been disabled for some Title fields that already link to other pages. (eg. Gallery titles link to a gallery page). To create a link:

STEP 1. Highlight some text in your Rich Text Editor.

STEP 2. Click the insert/edit link icon. (see image below).

STEP 3. In the pop-up box enter the Link URL for the page you wish to link to. It is better to copy and paste the URL directly from the Link page to avoid errors.
