Linking files and documents

Linking files and documents

You can use the Property inspector and the Point-to-File icon to create links from an image, an object, or text to another document or file. For more information about using the site map to create links, see Modifying links in the site map.

Dreamweaver creates the links to other pages in your site using document-relative paths. You can also tell Dreamweaver to create new links using site root-relative paths.

This section covers the following topics:

  • Linking to documents using the Property inspector
  • Linking documents using the Point-to-File icon
  • Linking documents using the site map
  • Using the Hyperlink command
  • Setting the relative path of new links
