Related Content Item Links

This can create internal links on your page.

Log in, open your page, click Edit.

Above the title of your page, on the right, find five function tabs; click the second one, "Categorization." This opens a new window on your page.

Scroll down to "Related Items" and click Add. This opens an additional list of items at your level in your folder. (To go up a level, click on the next higher link of the navigation tree just above the list of items.) If you can't find the item, try typing its title in the Search box at the top of the list.

Find the item which represents the destination that your link should point to, and to the right of its title click Insert. Then, on your page in the Categorization window you will see that item appear with a checkmarked box beside the title. Click Save.

The link should appear at the bottom of the page, inside a box labeled "Related Content." (In Edit mode, this box will not be visible!) You can add several items in a row before clicking Save. Usually related items will appear in the order in which you added them; unlike items in a folder, related items can not be re-ordered manually.

To remove items, Edit > Categorization, find the item listed, uncheckmark its box, and click Save.

At the bottom of this web page, as a sample, I've created related item links for the first 3 website FAQs.


So... why not just insert a lot of internal links?

  • Access. If you are linking to destination pages which have a more restricted privacy setting than your page, Related Items will allow you to give selective access to only certain readers. If viewers authorized to read the destination pages log on to your page, they can see and click on your related links and view the destination. But if people are authorized to view only your page (but not the destination pages), they will not be able to even see the links appear on your page at all! Related Item links are visible only to the people allowed to view the linked pages. If you were to supply only internal links instead, then unauthorized readers would see and click on the links, get a somewhat brusque error message, and would be unable to back-browse to your page again. We recommend that for your unauthorized readers, you let them know that the Related Item links on this page can be viewed only with (for example) a member log in: "If you believe that you require access to these links, please contact [administrator of that section or destination page]." 
  • Flexibility. With Related Item links, you can later cut and paste to move your origin page, AND you can cut and paste to move your destination pages -- without breaking the links!
