Link

Set a link to trigger when the element is clicked. The options are as follows:

None: No link.

Page: Choose a page from your site to link to.

Canvas: Choose a Canvas on your page to scroll to. If you’d like to define a specific Canvas View to display within that Canvas, choose that from the Canvas View dropdown.

URL: Insert a web address to link to. Be sure to include http:// at the beginning of the URL. For example, www.example.com is incorrect, http://www.example.com is correct.

Social: Choose a social media channel to share the page to.

Email: Enter an email address to send an email to.

SMS: Enter a mobile phone number to send a text message to. Be sure to enter the country code and area code, omitting any dashes and spaces. For example, a valid phone number in the US would look like 14803861337. This is most relevant to mobile design, as it will (in most cases) open the mobile user’s text messaging app with the number pre-filled.

SMS: Enter a phone number to call. Be sure to enter the country code and area code, omitting any dashes and spaces. For example, a valid phone number in the US would look like 14803861337. This is most relevant to mobile design, as it will (in most cases) call the number from the user’s phone when clicked.

WordPress Post (available in WordPress design templates only): Applies the appropriate direct into the full WordPress blog post or page.

Add Action

Add an additional action to control a Canvas or Gallery on the page. These actions are only relevant if Link is set to None or Canvas, which keep the user on the same page. Multiple actions can be added to one element. Here are the types of actions you can add:

Show Canvas: This action type will cause the Canvas chosen in the dropdown to appear.

Hide Canvas: This action type will cause the Canvas chosen in the dropdown to disappear.

Gallery: Controls the navigation of a Gallery on the page
