If you want to link text within the body of a page of a blog post to a new page, do the following:

  1. On your Page or Post that you want to add the hyperlink, click the “visual” tab in WordPress. Make sure you are typing in this tab and not the “text” tab.
  2. Type the anchor text. This is the text the user will click on.
  3. Copy the URL you are linking to. For example: www.example.com.
  4. Highlight the anchor text you write in step 2 and then click the paper clip icon.
  5. Paste the URL into the box.
  6. If you want to open the link in a new tab, click the setting gear. Otherwise, click the blue “apply” button.
  7. The anchor text will appear on the screen underlined now. You might want to make the anchor text “bold” by highlighting it and clicking the B icon so that it stands out more.
  8. Visit your page and ensure that the link is working.
