1. Log into your website (http://sitename.uncc.edu/user)
2. Using the site manager toolbar at the top of the page, navigate to Create content > Basic Page.
3. Give your page a Title and add Body copy.
4. Type and highlight the desired link text.
Please keep the link text contextual. DO NOT use “Click here” or “Read more”. As in: “To fill out our Graduate School Application, click here” where “click here” is the link. Instead describe what the link will open with the link text. For example: “Fill out our Graduate School Application”, where “Graduate School Application” is the link. The goal is to make the link and link text be understood even if the link is the only item that is read on the page by a screen reader.
