Click on this and a pop up window will appear with a search box. Enter a keyword or two and a list of Topics that match your search will appear. Select them by clicking on the white box to the left, then click "Submit query". The message "Topic Linked Succesfully" will appear. When you have finished close the window.

 Creating Weblinks in Description Fields

Tags: Tags are keywords that become weblinks once you save the Topic or Item you add them to. Enter as many different keywords or search terms as you think may be useful, and feel free to add them to other Items and Topics. 

Text Editor : The description field when creating Topics and Items is very powerful, and includes the ability to make text or images weblinks to other Items or Topics. Select the text, or click on the image that you want to be the weblink and then select the chain icon from the top row of the toolbar immediately above the description field. Enter the destination for the weblink into the url field and save. It's that easy!
