The rich text editor
The TYPO3 text editing interface is not much different from a word processor.
The options available in the toolbars vary depending on how your TYPO3
installation is configured.
You can format text, set the alignment, insert tables and symbols and add
internal and external links to text.
Creating a link
Select the text you want to link.
Click the Link icon in the toolbar.
The Link Browser window displays.
This window lets you link to an internal page, file, folder, external
URL, email address or phone number.
You can link to an internal file, folder, page or content element on a page.
On the Page tab, select the page in the page tree that you want to link to.
Alternatively, you can link to a specific point (anchor) on the page. Browse
to the page you want to link to, then click the arrow icon next to the page
name. The content elements on that page are displayed and you can select the
content element you want to link to.
The Link Browser window closes and the link is added to your text.
In the Link Browser window, go to the External URL tab.
Type your link in the URL field.
In the Target drop-down list, select New window to open the
link in a new browser window.
Click the Set Link button to close the Link Browser window.
Removing a link
To remove a link from text, put your cursor anywhere in the linked text then
click the Unlink icon on the toolbar.
