How to add Content Links to Custom HTML websites

As a reminder, here is a over about what Content Links are:


If you haven't added any Content Links in the past, first you'll need to click on 'Member Pages' in your top navigation > make sure you have added at least one Member Page > and then click on Content Links in the left side menu.

Content Link types

Below are the different types of Content Links you can have along with the member interactions options:

PDF Content Links:
- Show in browser when the link is clicked
- Download the PDF when the link is clicked

Video Content Links (more info):
- Popup the video when the link is clicked
- Turn the link automatically into an embed of the video (without a click)

Audio Content Links (mp3 only):
- Download the mp3 when the link is clicked
- Turn the link automatically into an embed audio player (without a click)

Image Content Links:
- Download the image when the link is clicked
- Popup the image when the link is clicked 
- Turn the link automatically into an embed of the image (without a click)

HTML Content Links:

File Content Links:
- Anything that is not a PDF, image, mp3, HTML, or video counts as a file
- Download the file when the link is clicked

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. Find the page you want to add the Content Link to and paste in the code where you want it to output as a link. No need to open the link in a new tab/window:
  3. Feel free to add any wording you want for the element text. In the example above I used "pdf download".
