  2. Notice what appears in the URL field. This is a dependency tag. OU Campus uses something called Dependency Manager to keep track of and link to internal files. Each file is assigned a unique tag that is inserted into links. This way, the link remains valid even when the file is moved or renamed (though there’s nothing we can do about deleted files).

  3. Other fields include Title, which is the text that displays when you hover your cursor over the link; Target, where you can choose if the link opens in a new window or not; and Class, where you can apply a style to the link. The Advanced tab also provides additional configuration options.
  4. Finally, click OK to place your link on the page. To edit an existing link, place your cursor in it and then select the Insert/edit Link icon from the toolbar. The Remove Link button is also available next to it.
