  1. Hello everyone!

    I was wondering how to make a word a direct link to another page…I added a link according to the instructions in the manual but it goes directly to the latest link section. In the Aniridia overview page for example, the last line says “For more detailed information on WAGR Syndrome go to The International WAGR Syndrome Association at http://www.wagr.org.”…where we are able to click on “The International WAGR Syndrome”……how do we do that? Anyone tried? Thanks!

  2. Oh, just figured it out….for those who haven’t tried it yet…there’s an “Insert/Edit Link” button on the top toolbar of our edit section.
