Add a link to to textbox content

The Blackboard's toolbar makes adding a link to the contents of any textbox -- be it a discussion board post, announcement, email, anything -- very easy. First you'll want to write your post or item which will include the link. Then, open a new browser tab (CTRL+T), and find and copy your URL. For this example, I've pulled the permalink to a journal article from the Library's catalog:

Get article permalink


Next, highlight the text you want folks to click on to open the link (in the example below, "DiPaolo's leadership article" will be our link text), then click the link button in the toolbar, which looks like a couple links of chain.

Highlight text, add link button


Paste your link into the url field and click INSERT to add your link.

Paste url and insert link


If you want to remove your link, re-highlight the link text and click the broken chain button.
