Document or image from media library/document central:  https://almont.editmydomain.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/2020-09-03.png **

Outside Link – https://www.accunet.us

When you start typing in the field, a page or document might drop down as an option.  You can choose if it is correct.  In my example, it is not.


VERY IMPORTANT: You must choose the arrow pointing left to save the link.  If you do not, the link will not save.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: The gear allows you to choose “open in another tab/window.” This option is recommended when the link is going to an outside source.
