How to use link builder in Magezon Page Builder

Have you ever dealt with a problem that there are tons of links on your website and it’s hard for you to modify all of them when the destination page’s URL changes? That won’t be a problem anymore, because now you can easily create and manage links on your Magento website with Magezon Page Builder.

Today’s tutorial blog is about taking full advantage of the link builder in our drag and drop page builder.

a web page contains a lot of links

When creating a webpage, people are fond of inserting links to text, images,pages and buttons (read more about how to create an anchor link in Magezon Page Builder) to get the visitor engaged more, and, of course, it is extremely useful for SEO. Consequently, this also poses a problem when the URL of the destination page is changed.

Normally, the link that you insert will not be replaced with the newly created link of the destination page. As a result, there exists an inconsistency and if you click on the link, it will point to a 404 page.

To solve that problem, you need to edit the inserted link and make it the same as the destination page’s new URL. It’s complicated and time-consuming, especially for a web page containing a large number of URLs, isn’t it?

However, your issue is no longer challenging as long as you get our Magento Page Builder Open Source. We offer a link builder to solve the problems related to the URL building. That means our link builder allows all of your inserted links to be updated automatically when there are changes in the destination page’s URL. Let’s take a closer look at its amazing features right below.

There are 4 types of link in the link builder popup. However, in terms of functionality we can treat them as 2 types – automatic updating, and non-updating.

automatic update link type

Category/product/page type allows your inserted links to navigate to any product/category/CMS page within your website. As mentioned above this type supports the automatic update function. When the existing URL of the page changes the link will automatically change as well. To keep things clear, let’s see our example.

Select the “category” type, then write “women” in the category box.

You can also add extra parameters for your specific purposes. For instance, to easily take control of our new marketing campaign, I’ll create the campaign parameter. Now, we’ll know from what campaign, source or medium the customer accessed the link.

The other type of link in our link builder is custom type. It allows you to insert any link you want, within your website, or to another website. There is a drawback, because this type of link is non-updating. If the destination URL changes the link will not be automatically updated. You will have to track these manually and update them anytime the destination URL changes.
