Adding an internal link in Movable Type

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┬áso that you actually have an internal page to create a link to.

Creating an internal link

  1. Login to your Movable Type admin dashboard.
  2. click on pages link

    Under the Websites tab, click on the pages link.

  3. click on home page to edit

    I’m going to be clicking on my Home page to edit it.

  4. highlight about us click on insert link

    Now I’m going to highlight the About Us text on my page, then click on the Insert / Edit Link icon in the menu.

  5. fill in link url click on insert

    In 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 update

    Now click on the update link at the right.

  7. click on view page

    You should see that your changes have been saved, then click on View Page to see those changes.
