Email Links

To create a link to an email address (say, for a "Contact Us" page),

Copy to your clipboard the email address of the person or department. Open the origin page where that person or department will appear. Enter and highlight the name of the person or department. Click the Kupu Planet Earth link. (Yes, even though the contact may be listed on the Radiology website, we use the external link function for this.) In the field labeled "Link the highlighted text to this URL," backspace over the http:// to remove it, and enter "mailto:contact@uw.edu" where "contact" is the first element of the person's or department's email (There won't be a Preview option for this.) Click OK. When you Save, you should see a little paper envelope symbol next to the hypertext name.

Example: here is an email link for Radiology Web Services tech support.

 

Breaking any Link

If you have inserted any of these link to your webpage, to break the connection to the linked content,

  • Choose Edit mode
  • Look at your hyperlink; click anywhere on the text or image which you highlighted to create the link;
  • see the tiny red "X" appearing at the far right of the Kupu editing green-frame (see screen shot below);
FAQs Break Link Red X
  • click on this "X," and hit Save. Now you should be in View mode, and you should be unable to open anything with this link. The hypertext line underneath the marker text should have disappeared.
  • Why not just delete the text label? Because this reliable 70% of the time, but there are random exceptions where the link will still operate even though the text does not look hypertexted, and also because in many cases you really want to preserve your text label and remove the link but keep the text.
