How to Create a Text Link in Wix

15 Mar 2018

 

Because several clients have asked how to create a list of titles that are themselves links back to the source pages on their own website – usually individual blog posts --  I’m providing this instruction.

 

Step One

Open the public view of your website in your browser.

In a separate browser tab, open your Wix blog editor.

You will be working between these two browser tabs.

 

 

Step Two

In your public view tab, go to the blog post you want to link.

Copy the title

  • Highlight the title with your mouse

  • Click and hold the CMD or CTRL key on your keyboard then also click on the C key to copy

 

 

Step Three

In the Wix editor tab of your browser, go to the place where you are making the title list

Start a new text box or open an existing text box

Paste in the title

  • Click and hold the CMD or CTRL key then also click on the V to paste the title you copied

 

Step Four

Return to the public view tab

Make sure it is the page where you just copied the title

Now highlight and copy the url for that page – this is what makes the link

  • The url is found in your browser address bar

  • A url looks like – https://www.domainname.com/single-post/2018/03/12/Here’s-The-Title-You-Copied

  • Be sure to copy the whole thing

 

Step Five

Return to the Wix editor tab

Highlight the title you previously pasted into the text box

The text box settings will pop up when the title is highlighted

Click on the link icon

Select Web Address from left side column

Paste in the url where shown in upper right column

Click the Done button

 

 

Step Six

Return to the public view tab

Select the next blog title to copy and paste

Repeat steps 3-5

 

This method can be used to turn a text reference into a link from any webpage on the internet, assuming you are importing the url for the link into your own Wix website. It should work with maybe slight modification to turn a phrase in an email into a link, depending on your email platform.

 

But it won't work in Facebook, and possibly not in other social media platforms. The reason is that the Facebook status function doesn't allow any coding. This is why you can't bold or italic words in your Facebook posts.
