    I wonder if it's possible to make a button that has the function as a "menu" where it will suggest what you can click. Same as "blind" that come down if you have a menu.

    I am trying to link my buttons as "previous/next". Does this feature still exist as shown in the video tutorial? I don't see the advanced button tab any more to select this option.

      Hey pkpapadopoulos, 


      I believe you are looking at the Flash platform tutorial, whereas your sites are built with the HTML platform. 

      You can add regular buttons or images and link them to pages on your site to create a similar effect.

      I didn't realize this function only works in flash. It sounds like I will have to individually link my 50 pages. 

      Is there a way I can have these buttons "show on all pages "while each of them is linked to a different page, for uniformity of appearance?

      Unfortunately if you check "show on all pages" the links will also remain the same, and will not be page specific. Meaning that clicking next will always lead to the same page as this is basically the same button appearing on all pages.


      Best regards

    I created my new website, but I have a problem, I created a menu buttons at the top of the page, each button has a link to different pages within the site, but the links do not work and will not let me edit the buttons, when I double click on them, it shows only the header menu, but not to edit the menu button, I see the menu but can not select the buttons to re-edit.

      This is because your menu is behind your header. To reveal it, click on the area above the menu which will select the header, and then click o nthe send backward icon until it is grey.


      Let us know if you have any other questions!

    I have uploaded 8 images on a page and want to link them to pdf files, which I have uploaded already but I cannot figure out any way to link to these images.  I stick some little piece of clipart on the page and it's easy to link it but I can't figure it out and I have been waiting for over 90 minutes for a call back and nothing.  VERY frustrating!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Any help out there?  Thanks,  Curt

      Hi Curt,

      All you need to do is click on the image -> Link To -> Document -> Add/Change Document -> choose the document from your Document Gallery and double-click on it ->click on OK. Save and publish your changes when you're done, and check your live site by clicking on the image.

    Same problem with adding buttons and link them:

    1- When I ask to add a button the editor adds a button just like the one on the top of the page with "Home/About us/Services/Contacts" but I only want one button not all these sequence.

    2-When I double click the button I am unable to see the link tab, it goes directly to the "pages" menu. If I click once a menu appears but with no link tab.

    Any suggestions?

      According to your description, it sounds like you're adding a menu bar instead of adding a single button.


      Add a button to your site from the Buttons & Menus section of the Add list and link it to an external site, a page from your site, a document or an email address.

      To add a button:
      1. From the left in the Editor, click the Add icon.
      2. From the Add list, click Buttons & Menus. Click one of the button options.
      3. From the Button Settings window, under Button Text, type a name for your button.
      4. Under Link to, click the field.
      5. From the Link Settings window that opens, click your Link type: Web Address, Page, Email or Document and add your link.
      Note: For more information about adding links, see the below section, Linking Your Buttons.
      6. From the Link Settings window, click Done.
      7. Click outside of the button to close the Button Settings window.
      A button is added to your site.
      Note: To return to Add , click Back to Add from the top of the window. To close Add, click X from the top right.

      Hi Dima,

      If you go to "Sheets" - then back and forth between "popular" and "newest" these pages are linked to "popular sheets" and "newest sheets" but one goes to the Home page.  Please let me know if you need more info.

    I was wondering if there is any way to link to a different section on the SAME page you are on? If you have a longer scrolling image, and want to be able to quickly link down to a different part.
