How can I embed HTML or a hyperlink on my MindMixer platform?

You can hyperlink in two places when creating a topic. Within the topic question or the topic description box. To utilize the HTML code to link to either a third party website or an existing document/map/video already uploaded on your MindMixer platform, follow these instructions.

 

Linking to a third party website:

  • Copy the URL of the third party site
  • In a separate tab, open a URL shortener tool such as https://goo.gl/
  • Paste the the third party site in the URL shortener tool and click "Shorten URL." Then copy the new, shortened URL
  • Then follow the steps within the "HTML Instructions" below

 

Linking to an existing document/map/video within your MindMixer platform:

  • Upload the resource (document/map/video) to your topic and publish the topic
  • Click on the resource to obtain the URL
  • In a separate tab, open a URL shortener tool such as https://goo.gl/
  • Paste the URL from your existing resource in the URL shortener and click "Shorten URL," then copy the new, shortened URL
  • Then follow the steps within the "HTML Instructions" below

 

HTML Instructions

Option 1: When someone clicks the link, it will open in a new tab. This option is recommended.

  • Paste the code below in the your topic question or topic description: 
  • <a href="INSERTLINK" target="_blank">INSERT TEXT</a>
  • Replace the INSERTLINK and INSERT TEXT fields with the shortened URL and the text that you'd like that URL to read.

Option 2: When someone clicks on this link it will open the new URL within the same tab.

  • Paste the code below in the your topic question or topic description:
  • <a href="INSERTLINK">INSERT TEXT</a>
  • Replace the INSERTLINK and INSERT TEXT fields with the shortened URL and the text that you'd like that URL to read.
