Check Your Links

How to add or fix a basic link:

  1. Post-Launch
    1. copy the URL that you want the link to point to (easiest from a separate browser tab)
    2. example: http://www.law.nyu.edu/careerservices/employers
    3. then click the link icon in the editor toolbar
    4. put in the full URL
    5. your URL should look like this: /careerservices/employers
      NOTE: the url does not need /index.htm at the end

Remove “double-bolded” links

If your links in Stellent had a ‘bold’ style applied to them they will look extra-bold in Drupal. These should be cleaned up when you have time.

To fix these, click once on the bolded link, then click the B (bold tool) in the toolbar. This should remove the bold from the entire link. Save!
