mojoPortal 101: Tips to Keep Your Site “Sticky”

mojoPortal makes it easy to keep your site content updated and relevant to your readers. However, in addition to your content, there are other ways to help your site visitors “stick around” a bit longer, giving you more of an opportunity to present content to your users.

We’ll start with the default content editor for mojoPortal, which is where one of your site’s content “leaks” most often originates. One of the best things about creating content in HTML format is the ability to link to related content on other sites. However, many users overlook a basic feature, which is to create the link so that it opens a new tab or window, which ensures that when the user closes that tab or window, your site is still there for them to explore.

To create your link, highlight your link text in the content editor, and click the icon that looks like a chain link in the menu above. Enter your URL, and then in the option labeled “Target”, select “Open link in a new window”, and then click “Insert”. Once you’ve saved your content, you’ll find that your links will open in a new window or tab, allowing your readers to view external content without leaving your site.

Another technique is to open your link in a lightbox; this is especially good for images. To use mojoPortal’s built-in lightbox, highlight your link, click the link icon, and under the “Advanced” link, enter “cblink” in the box labeled “Stylesheet Classes”. Save, and save your content. Once you’ve done so, click on your link; now you’ll see the targeted link appear in a lightbox. Once your readers close the lightbox, they’ll still be on your original page, ready to continue to read your site’s content.
