Links are important components for any blog or site. Alfresco also has a similar functionality where you can have dedicated pages inside your site to manage all your links. From that page you can manage all your links.
Configure Sites to add Link Page
By Default when you create new site there will be only three pages available. You need to add Links page explicitly in your newly created site in alfresco share.
- Create New Site.
- To add site you need to click on “Customize Site” action from drop down on top right corner of you site dashboard.
- Drag and drop Links from “Available site pages list” to “Current Site Pages” then it will look like below image (Although I have added all remaining pages also like “wiki”, ”calendar” etc… you can leave them as it is)
Create New Link
For creating your first link you need to click on links page on your site from your site dashboard.
On left side of Links Page you could see action create new link through that you can create new link as follow.
Comments on Link
You can also add multiple comments on created link from link detail page. Once you create link you will be redirected to link detail page which looks like below.
Links List Page
Links page on you site is basically links list page from where you can see all created links and manage them easily. Currently I only have one link in my list page and it looks like as below.
Summary: Hope this post gives you little bit of insight related to links in alfresco site. I personally feel it is not very fully mature thing and it should have more features like once link is created it should be visible during creation of blogs and wiki on same site so that we can add it inside blogs, wiki.
