WiscWeb CMS - Inserting an Email Link

This document explains how to insert an email link. There are two methods for doing this.

Automatic insertion of e-mail address (Internet Explorer only)

  1. While typing in the text editor, type out an e-mail address and press the spacebar. The e-mail address automatically turns into a link.

  2. Press OK to complete your edits and return to the page. If you ever need to modify the e-mail address, simply delete the existing text, and type in a new e-mail address.

Insertion of e-mail address with different link text

  1. Select the text that you would like to make a link and click the Link button.
