Links, Fonts Tab

Use the Links, Fonts Tab on the Page Editor dialog box to set hyperlink colors, underlining, and hover effects for the page. These colors only apply to links on text. Links on images are not affected. You can set the colors of individual links from within the text editor’s link editor. You may also specify parameters to redirect users to a different web page after a specified interval if the current page becomes inactive.

Use the Links, Fonts Tab of the Page Editor dialog box to set global hyperlinks colors and page-redirection specifications.

Controls on the Links, Fonts Tab of the Page Editor dialog box include the following:

Field/Control Description
Unvisited Click to open the Color dialog box, allowing you to set the color of unvisited hyperlinks. The button text displays the currently selected color.
Visited Click to open the Color dialog box, allowing you to set the color of already-visited hyperlinks. The button text displays the currently selected color.
Selected Click to open the Color dialog box, allowing you to set the color of selected hyperlinks (i.e., link has focus (dotted rectangle) and mouse has passed over once. The definition of a selected link varies from browser to browser.) The button text displays the currently selected color.

Character Set

 

Optional. Click a radio button corresponding to the character set to use when the user’s browser is interpreting text in the HTML. Choose from among UTF8, ANSI or Other. If you choose Other, you must enter a character set name in the next field or leave it blank to use no character set (not recommended). Generally this won’t affect you, unless you are using special characters in your file names or page name. For instance, if you wanted to use accented (ê for example) characters in your page name, you would need to specify the ANSI character set  which will use the Western European character set iso-8859-1. Some European users may use this functionality.

Default Font

Click to open the Font dialog box, allowing you to set default text attributes for all text in your project. For more information, see Font Dialog Box.

Redirect to New Location

Click to checkmark to create an automatic hyperlink that will redirect visitors of the current page to a new location or file (specified below) after the chosen time delay.

Link Type Select from the drop-down menu the type of hyperlink you want to apply to the automatic redirect hyperlink. Choose from among internal project page (-page-) or Internet (http://). Or, you may leave the Link Type menu blank for other types of links. For more information, see Hyperlinking.
URL If you are hyperlinking to an Internet web page (http://), select from the drop-down menu a target or destination for the hyperlink. The menu will display pre-defined hyperlinks that you have added to the Link Manager. If the desired hyperlink is not in the drop-down menu, enter a new hyperlink target. (For more information, see Link Manager.)

If you are hyperlinking to an internal project page (-page-), select from the drop-down menu the page name within the current project you want to link to. For more information, see Hyperlinking.
