How do I add a link to a File from an External Site or Newsletter?

ChapterWeb users have access to two types of file structure: Folder and Category. Follow the links below for specific instructions using…

Category File Structure

  • Login to your ChapterWeb account and click on the “Files” tab
  • Locate the file that you would like to link to, and click on the “URL” link beside the name of the file (see item 1 below).
    Url
  • Once you’ve selected the URL link a new window will appear with the URL of the file. Right click on the URL and copy to your computer’s clipboard (see item 2 below).
    Url2
  • Once you’ve copied the URL of the file, you’ll want to press “OK” on the dialog box and return to the content area that you’d like to post your link in your Newsletter or external site.
  • Place the hyperlink that you’ve copied into the link area of your external site or newsletter, placing the website address of your chapter in front of it. For example:
    http://nclridgerock.chapterweb.net/_extranet/_services/s3_redirect.aspx?f=75857
    or
    http://nclridgerock.org
    /_extranet/_services/s3_redirect.aspx?f=75857
  • Your members will have to login to view these files once they’ve clicked the link, but will automatically be redirected to the file as soon as they login. If members have clicked “remember me” in their browsers, they’ll automatically be taken to the file without having to first login.
