How to create a “Next” link

Note: This article refers to the legacy version of the Website Builder. If you signed up to the HostPapa Website Builder after March 11 2020, you’re on the new version of the Website Builder. For help, go here.

You can allow people to browse your site by clicking on a Next link or button on your page, instead of using the automatically generated menu. The Text and Link editors can be used to create this type of navigation for your site.

Here are the steps:

  1. Create the pages for your site.
  2. Click on Page > Navigation.
  3. Remove all except your first (main) page from your menu. To do this, click on the green check on the right-hand side of the page name so that it turns into a red x.
  4. At the bottom of each of your pages, drag and drop a Text Widget onto your page.
  5. Add your link text or image. For example, you could have a link that says Next. You could also include a First and Last link, linking to the first and last pages on your list.
  6. Highlight your link text or image and click Insert link on the Text Editing Toolbar.
  7. A dialog box will open with all of the link options. Click on Page and you will see a list of the pages on your site. Select the one you want to link to.
  8. To test that the link is working, save and preview your page.
