    Customize URL in Free Text

    Asked by AtlantaFormation on March 18, 2014 at 05:25 PM

    I have a url that I want to put in Free Text.  Rather than display the actual URL in the form I would like to put in "Event Flyer" so when the user clicks on that text they go to the URL.  I know how to insert the URL I just don't understand how to change what is displayed to the user.  You will see it under the Gala Dinner text section.


    Thanks in advance.

    If you want to create a hyperlink using the text Event Flyer, then you need to insert the next code using the HTML tags for hyperlinks:

    <a target="_blank" href="https://www.dropbox.com/s/f4eimlbqcza9nst/GLAM.jpg" rel="nofollow noopener" >Event Flyer</a>

    As you can see the text is between both <a> tags, so that will convert it in hyperlink, which if it's clicked then it will go to the URL.

    Please inform us if you still need assistance with this inquiry.
