In this article I'm going to teach you how to add an internal link in Movable Type, so that you can have one of your pages linking directly to another, without your visitors having to navigate there from the menu.

Before getting started following along with this guide, I'd recommend first ensuring that you already know how to create a new page in Movable Type so that you actually have an internal page to create a link to.

  5. fill in link url click on insertIn the Link URL field type in the name of your page you'd like to link to. In this case, my page is about-us.html. I've also set my Target to Open Link in the Same Window, then clicked on Insert.
  6. click on updateNow click on the update link at the right.
  7. click on view pageYou should see that your changes have been saved, then click on View Page to see those changes.
