Before adding Content Links

Before adding your Content Links to your site, you should edit them to make sure the following fields are how you want them:

You can always edit these fields in the future.

How to add download/popup Content Links

This is for PDFs, images, videos, mp3s, or files

  1. Start by clicking 'Copy' for the Content Link:If for some reason you can't click copy, instead, right click the 'Link' to the right of 'Copy' and then click 'Copy link address'. 
  2. Make sure you are logged into your Carrd dashboard.
  3. Scroll down to whatever section of your site you want to add the Content Link to. Click the "+" icon to add an element. You can add any element that can be a link (Text, Image, Buttons, Links). In this example we'll choose Buttons:
  4. Enter whatever Label you want > paste the Content Link code you copied in Step 1 into the URL field > fill out the rest of the form however you want > click Done:
  5. Lastly, don't forget to 'Publish' your changes. To test this, you'll need to be on your live website, not the Carrd editor.

How to add embed Content Links

This is for videos, mp3s, images, or HTML
