How to Make a Word Click to Another Page on a Website – Step by Step Guide

There are times when we want to quickly jump to another part of a website or document. Whether you need to check a quick FAQ for more information or want to directly click on a product image to make a purchase, you want to easily be able to do this on the web. Today we will teach you how to make a word or phrase click to another page on a website. This feature is usually available on commercial websites that have a lot of content, but can also be useful for any website.

Introducing CSS Selectors

The secret to making a word or phrase click is using CSS selectors. CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. These are the rules that tell the browser how to stylize the content on a website. If you’re not familiar, CSS can actually change the look and feel of your entire site. One thing to note is that these rules only apply to the content on your site. They don’t change how the browser displays a book you’re reading or a movie you’re watching. They only apply to what you see on screen.

Setting Up The Environment

Before you start making words click, you need to make sure you have the tools to do so. For this tutorial, we will be using a free chrome extension called Live Editing Tiles. This tool is highly recommended because it makes modifying the styles of your site a snap. While most live css editors allow you to edit the styles of any page on your site, this tool specifically targets the content you’re viewing on screen and offers several additional features. For example, you can create reusable components that can be used across your site. This makes creating a new page style much easier because you won’t have to start from scratch. You can also use the tool to test out different page layouts before you make any long-term design decisions. These features make Live Editing Tiles a valuable tool for any website project.

Understanding What Is Needed

Once you have Live Editing Tiles, the next step is to make sure you understand what is needed. You can add any text or word to the live css editor, and it will immediately change how the page appears. However, sometimes we want to change more than this. When we use CSS selectors to target certain words or phrases, we can quickly change how these words appear on screen. We can replicate the clicking functionality of a physical button with the click of a button using basic CSS selectors. For this tutorial, we will be using the words “Terms and Conditions” because we want to replicate the functionality of clicking on these words when viewing the FAQ page for our site. Adding this text to the live css editor will make the entire page change how it looks when the page is viewed.

Creating The CSS

Once you have your text or word selected, it’s time to start creating your CSS. Begin by typing the following in your chrome browser:

p{font-size: 16px;line-height: normal;}

This code tells the browser that all the text on the page will be of a certain size and line height. In other words, all the text on the page will have the same physical size and be displayed in a single line.

Adding The Relevant Classes

Next, we want to add a few classes to the CSS that we just created. To do this, you need to add the following code to your CSS:

p.terms input, p.terms textarea{font-family: “Helvetica Neue”, Arial, sans-serif;font-size: 16px;line-height: normal;}

Here, we are telling the browser that all the paragraphs on our page will have the same fonts, size, and line height and that all the text within these elements will be treated as input (meaning they can all be focused on).

As you can see above, we are also giving these elements a class of terms. This class will make these elements easily identifiable on our page. If you ever have to modify the style of a particular paragraph, you can do so with relative ease because all you have to do is go to that one page and find the term. Then, you can find all the instances of that term and change the style for all of them simultaneously.

Adding The Class That Makes It Click

Once we have our CSS finished, it’s time to add the class that will make the element clickable. To do this, add the following code to the end of your CSS:

p.terms input:focus, p.terms textarea:focus{-webkit-user-select: none;-moz-user-select: none;-ms-user-select: none;-o-user-select: none;user-select: none; cursor: pointer;}

This code tells the browser that when an element with the class of terms is focused (meaning the user is currently inside that element), the entire page will become unselectable. In other words, nothing will be selectable (including text, images, or other elements). You would use this if you have a submit button on a form and you don’t want the user to be able to accidentally select the form’s contents while they’re trying to click on another part of the page. This can be very dangerous if you’re not careful! Keep this in mind if you ever decide to use this functionality.

Adding More Classes

If you want, you can add more classes to this page to make it look more like a terms and conditions page. For example, if you have a footer on your site that you always want to be at the bottom of every page, you can add the following code:

footer {position: fixed;bottom: 0px;left: 0px;right: 0px;}

This code tells the browser that the footer will always be at the bottom of the page and that it will never be able to float above the content (in other words, it will never be displayed on top of content).

Testing The CSS

Last but not least, we want to test out our CSS. Once you’re happy with it, you can upload it to a testing environment so that you can easily verify that it’s working as expected. To do this, you can use one of the many free online testing tools. In this case, we will be using Google’s Chrome extension called PageSpeed. Once you’ve uploaded your CSS to test, open up the PageSpeed extension and click on the three dots in the top right corner. Then, click on “inspect element.” This will bring up a new window that will allow you to easily verify all the changes you’ve made. You can now verify that all the text is of the proper size and line height and that all the relevant images are displayed as anticipated.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully made a word or phrase click to another page on a website. You can continue adding more words or phrases and creating additional styles or you can move on to the next step.
