Form Setup‎ > ‎

Add a Link to Your Form

You can add a link to another website or a file from your registration form in the header, footer, a label of a field, in a confirmation email, etc.
 
Using the Link Tool in from the tool bar in that appears in the HTML editor (header, footer, email setup)


  1. Click the link icon on the editor's tool bar.
  2. Enter the full URL of the link.
  3. Enter the text that you would like to be linked.
  4. Select the target as "New Window" if you would like a new window to open when the link is clicked.  We recommend this so people aren't taken away from the registration form.
  5. Click save.
  6. View your form and click the link to be sure it works as you expect.

Creating links when the Link Tool isn't available

You will need to enter the HTML code to create a link.
  1. Go into the field label or other area where you would like the link to appear.
  2. Click into HTML mode on the label editor (this is an option at the bottom of the editor's window) if available.
  3. Copy and past the html below and put in your link address and link text

    <a target="_blank" href="enter your full link address here">enter your link text here</a>

  4. Click save
  5. View your form and click the link to be sure it works as you expect.

Example

To make a link that looks like this:

      Make a Hotel Reservation.

Here is the HTML to use:

      Make a <a target="_blank" href="http://www.hilton.com">Hotel Reservation</a>.

NOTES:

  • It is good practice to not simply use the web address (ie: www.hilton.com) as the displayed link.  Try to enter descriptive words instead. 
  • In this example, it is a good idea to put the trailing period following 'Hotel Reservation' after the closing </a> tag, so that it doesn't appear 'hyperlinked'.
  • To make the linked page open in the same window, remove the text in the link code that says "target="_blank".  For example, if you have a link on the thank you page (the page that appear after a registration is completed) you will usually want the event website to open in the same window.
