There are four types of links in the CMS:

  • Internal Links
       Links to Content Types created within the CMS (Pages, Webforms, Galleries, etc.)
  • External Links
       Links to content outside the CMS (Blackboard, MaineStreet, Yahoo!, etc.), as well as files (PDFs, spreadsheets, documents, etc.) uploaded to the CMS
  • Links to files within the CMS
       Links to files (PDFs, spreadsheets, documents, etc.) that have been uploaded to the CMS
  • Links to Anchors
       Links to sections within a single page

Exceptions

Some content types (such as Staff and Faculty pages, Slideshow Images, etc.) have fields for links which must be entered manually, and which are not validated by the system

  • External links must be fully qualified (including the "http://..." prefix)
  • Internal links must use the external facing URL ("http://usm.maine.edu/...", NOT "http://cms.usm.maine.edu/...")
    - To get the external facing URL, open an IE browser window and navigate to the desired content without logging in
  • No labels
