Customizing the Educational Links Page

Once you are logged in to the Site Administration, you’ll need to go to the Pages section located on the left-hand side of the Dashboard. This is where you’ll find your Teacher Pages. You can open the Pages section by clicking on the red bar labeled Pages. Then locate and click the “Educational Websites” page.

Notice the buttons at the top of the page: Create Links, Manage Links, and Optional Content and Page Settings.

The Optional Content and Page Settings button is where you can add information about your Educational Links page using the text editor.

This acts as the header for all of your educational links, allowing you to create a unique design for your educational links page.

The Create Links section is where we will begin the process for creating an educational link. 

First, let’s enter a title for your link in the title field. Next, you will need to copy and paste the URL of the website you are wanting to link to. This will be placed in the URL/web address field. Now you can enter any information related to the site or a paragraph detailing the link in the extra details section.

Once those steps are completed you will be able to apply an image to use as a thumbnail for the site that you are linking to. You will have a couple of options to select the image you want to use.

For option 1 you can upload a file from your computer straight into the site by clicking Choose File. After finding the file you can then choose to copy this image to your photo drawer for later use. This can be accomplished by simply clicking on the drop-down menu and then selecting the folder you want it copied to.

Option 2 lets you choose a picture you have previously stored in the photo drawer. First, click on the drop-down menu and select the title of the folder that has the picture you want. Then select the photo you wish to use by clicking on it. Lastly, select the order in which you want the link to appear on a list. When finished, click Save. 

Remember to click SAVE when finished  

Now that a link has been saved you can go to the Manage Links section where you will see a list of all the links that have been created along with options to go back and edit, delete or adjust the order of display by using the navigational arrow on the left side to 'drag and drop' the links into a new order. 

When you use the drag and drop method to reorder the links, you will need to select the green Save Move button that appears immediately after the move.

Don’t forget to take time to test your links to ensure they work properly.

To test the link simply click on it and you will be directed to the webpage you linked it to. The quickest way to continue making edits to this webpage is by clicking the green “edit this page” button located at the top of the page. This will take you right back to where you were editing this page originally
