Web Content Management (WCM)

Insert A link

The WCM distinguishes between two types of links: internal and external

  • Internal links are links to other pages, images, and documents managed by the WCM. These are preferred because the WCM will make sure they never break.
  • External links are links to pages not managed by the WCM. They might be Sac State pages, but if they are not in the WCM, they are external.
