How to Link to Another Website in Dreamweaver

To link to a page on another website in Dreamweaver — sometimes called an external link — all you need is the URL of the page to which you want to link, and you’re most of the way there.

To create an external link, follow these steps:

  1. In Dreamweaver, open the page where you want to create the link.

  2. Select the text or image that you want to act as the link.

  3. In the Link text box in the Property inspector, type the URL of the page to which you want your text or image to link.

    The link is set automatically. Here, a link was created using the text Wikipedia to link to http://wikitravel.org/en/Cuba, the specific section of the Wikipedia website that covers Cuba.

Although you don’t have to type the http:// or even the www. at the beginning of a website address to get to a site in most web browsers, you must always use the full URL, including the http://, when you create a link to another website in HTML. Otherwise, the browser can't find the correct external site address, and the visitor will probably end up on an error page.
