Link to a Website

Hotspots can be used to direct a user to an external URL (any file or webpage that exists outside of the project). The most basic of these is to link to a webpage/website.

To link to a website:

  1. Add either a point or polygon hotspot.

  2. (Optional) Give the link a Title. This will appear as a tooltip when the mouse hovers over the hotspot.

  3. In the hotspot properties, choose URL for the Link Target Type.

    ✭ The web link must be absolute; meaning http:// or https:// must be included in the address. http://www.example.com

  4. (Optional) In the Target field, use the drop-down menu to choose how the page will open. _blank will open the page in a new browser window.

  5. Output and test the project.
