Adding the External Link to your Website Based on Platform

WordPress

WordPress was released to the public in 2003 and it immediately caught the attention of blog writers worldwide. This flexible CMS began as a blog writers paradise, but it quickly grew into a website building titan for an array of content such as learning management systems (LMS), media galleries, mailing lists, and of course online stores. WordPress does require some plugin architecture, so it might not be the best for non-tech savvy individuals, but if you like being 100% in control of creating your website, then WordPress will be good for you.

To install an external link to your WordPress navigation menu:

Step #1: After logging into your WordPress, on the left-hand side of your dashboard there will be a column. Navigate to the appearance tab. Under the appearance tab there will be the menus page.

Step #2: Once inside of the menus page, navigate to the arrow next to the custom links tab. Under custom links, there is a designated place to add your online store’s URL and set the name of the page. Once done, click add to menu and it will be in your navigation menu on your home page. 

Wix

Unlike WordPress, which is a CMS, Wix is a “all-in-one” website builder that makes building a website easy even for the non-tech savvy individuals. You can choose to let artificial intelligence create your website based on your requirements, or you can create your website yourself through customizable templates and drag-and-drop tools.

To install an external link to your Wix navigation menu:

Step #1: From your Wix dashboard, click on the edit site close to the top right-hand corner.

Step #2: Once inside your edit site tab, find the menus & pages icon on the left-hand side of your page.

Step #3: Inside of the menu & pages tab, you will be able to add a page to your navigation menu and attach a URL to that page by clicking the add link icon at the bottom.

Squarespace

Most notable for its template designs, Squarespace offers creatives and businesses a space to present their brand in an aesthetically visual manner. Similar to Wix, Squarespace is a “all-in-one” website builder that allows users to fully customize their website with plenty of notable features such as the drag-and-drop, design tools, and design panels. Squarespace is on the more sophisticated side of website building, so like WordPress, Squarespace will need some time getting used to, and a lot of patience for the non-tech savvy individual.

To install an external link to your Squarespace navigation menu:

Step #1: From your home page, navigate to the pages tab in the left-hand column.

Step #2: Inside your pages tab, click on the + icon next to main navigation in the left-hand column.

Step #3: Once the pop-up page appears, scroll down the page until you find the link tab.

Step #4: Once you click on the link tab, another pop-up will appear. Here you can add the URL to your online store and set the title of the page your link is attached to.
