Folder Hyperlinks - How do I create a folder hyperlink?

Within Contensis, you can include a hyperlink to another page or section of the website in the left-hand project explorer menu.

This is useful for saving time when reusing a regular link on several different pages as you can simply create one hyperlink in the menu (which appears on all pages) instead. It can also help with navigation.

To create a hyperlink:

  • Right-click on the folder in which you would like the hyperlink to appear and choose ‘create new content’.


As well as the option to create a new webpage, you should have the choice of creating a new hyperlink. 


  • If this option does not appear, please email the IT Service Desk.
  • Select the Hyperlink type and give the hyperlink a title, file and menu name before clicking finish.
  • You then have the option to edit the newly created hyperlink which you should select to complete this process.
  • Once you have selected this option, follow the same process for creating hyperlinks within webpages. Read more here.
  • It is best to select ‘browse CMS content’, after which a new box will pop-up allowing you to select the page or folder within Contensis that you would like to link to.
  • Save your selection and save the page before previewing to make sure the hyperlink works and showing the correct page.
  • When you are happy with the hyperlink, click on workflow (across the top of the edit window) and submit and approve to make it live.
  • To sort out where it appears within the left-hand menu, you will need to manage the menu, which can be done by right-clicking on the folder, selecting manage menu and ticking the pages that you wish to appear in the menu. 
  • You can also rearrange the order by dragging and dropping the pages into the order you would like. 
  • Click apply changes and the menu will update within 30 minutes. Click here for more information.
