You can insert links into more text editors on your EngagementHQ site, but you cannot directly upload document or image links. This can make it difficult if you need to insert a document link into a project description or a tool, such as surveys, forums, or news articles.

For security reasons, the AWS URL that you retrieve from your browser’s address bar expires after a period of time. Instead, you will need to retrieve the document or image URL from the back end of the Documents or Photos widgets.

Document links

To obtain and link a document:

  1. On your project page, select the title of the Documents widget that houses the document you wish to link.

  2. Select the hyperlink icon next to the relevant document to Copy document URL.

  3. In the text editor of the relevant description area, select the text you want to link and choose the Insert Link icon.

  4. Paste the document’s URL in the URL field. You can also edit the link Text and check the box to Open in new tab.

  5. Select Insert to apply the link and always save your changes.

If required, you can also link to the complete Documents library by copying the More... link on the live project page. This link only appears if you have not checked each document to display on the project page.

If necessary, you can also use the Insert Link option on an image to create an image link to the document.

Image links

When inserting an image into a text editor, you can either upload it or insert it using a link. To retrieve the image link:

  1. On the front end of your project page, right-click on the image and select Copy Image Link. This may also say something like Copy image address or Copy image location, depending on the browser you use.

  2. In the text editor of the relevant description area, place your cursor where you want the image and select Insert Image.

  3. Select the hyperlink icon to switch to the By URL tab and paste the image’s URL into the provided field.

  4. Select Insert and always save your changes.

You can also use the Insert Link option if you want to link to the image.
