You can create several types of links on your website page:
- You can place a link to another site.
- You can add a link to a page on your own site.
- You can link to a block on the page.
- You can add a link to an email address so that the site visitor can send you an email directly from the page. This will automatically launch your visitor’s external mail program such as MS Outlook or Apple Mail in the new window.
