Initially, this shows that the Links List is using the Scouts Online Default settings. To change this, select either your group default or section specific from the drop down list.

You will now see blank fields, allowing you to define the text, images, links and settings. You may also click the [Get settings from Default] button to copy the default settings as a base from which to edit.

Links List

Title: This is the text shown in the link or, where an image is specified, the text displayed when a user hovers over the image.

Hyper Link: This holds a link to another web page. Local web pages, which are prefixed with a ~, open in the existing browser tab. External web links will open in a new browser tab.

Image URL: This may be a local image from the Scouts Online images or from your own files, or an image held elsewhere on the internet. Local files are prefixed with ~. This virtual path may be found in the file details in the File Manager.

Description: This holds a description of the link, which will be displayed along with the title or image.

Section Type: If set, the link is only displayed if your group has a section of this type.

The Image Banner buttons move the row up or down.

Style: This defines the structure of the link list. Options are Vertical, Vertical-Slim, Horizontal-2 columns wide, Horizontal-3 columns wide, Horizontal-4 columns wide and Horizontal-5 columns wide.

Clicking [save] will store the changes you made. Alternatively, you may change the drop down list back to Scouts Online Default to revert back to using the default settings.
