Adding External Links

You are able to have external links appear in your site’s navigation — this means you can have a link in your navigation to a page in another department’s web space or to a non-Wesleyan website.

  • In your site’s dashboard in Cascade select the folder in which you want the external link to appear.
    • If you want the link to appear on your home page, select the Base Folder.
  • In the Add Content dropdown select  External Link.
  • In the pop-up window:
    • Link Name — short but identifiable for your external link.
    • Link –type or paste the url of  the External Link(*Note: Make sure the http:// is included in the link)cascade-external-link

Step 2

  • Select the Metadata tab
  • Display Name— this text appears in the website navigation

Step 3

  • use the blue Preview Draft button at the top right of the page to create a personal draft of the page to preview your edits
  • click the Submit button on the top to save your edits into Cascade
