How to link between Wiki pages in Blackboard

Linking

Linking

1. To link to a new wiki page the page already has to have been created. If you have not already created the new page click on Create Wiki Page and set the page up as normal.

2. On the new page it is good practice to add a link to take the reader back to the previous page. So in this example we have created a new page about Kittens and we will add a link to go back to the main Cats page.

3. Click on the Link to Wiki Page button.

8. So now you can go through the same process to add the link to this new page you just created in your original page.  So go back to the original page and edit it and add a new link to your new page.  In this screenshot we want to add a link to the kittens page.  The text is ready and we need to click on the create wiki link button which is encircled in red.
