How To Add Links to Your Website Builder Features

Website Builder allows you to build your own website quick and easy by selecting a template and using Website Builder Features, which are ready-made layout elements that you can drag and drop then customise for you to creatively construct every part of your page.

You can add Links to Features like the Heading, Text, Button, and Photo, to lead them to a specific page or section of a page in your website, open a different website, open or download a file, or even link them to a specific Email address or Phone number when clicked.
