BEST PRACTICE: Use DK Links for Doubleknot Pages and Documents

The DK Links feature is the best way to include a link to a document; a registration page for events, programs, facilities, memberships, dues and fundraisers; or a store product. Using DK Links ensures that you always publish the right URL for the following:

  • Photo Albums
  • Site Brander
  • Newsletters
  • Documents
  • Document Folders
  • Store Products
  • Store Categories
  • Activities or Events
  • Feature List
  • Surveys
  • Home Page

You can use DK Links anywhere you use the Rich Text Editor, including Communications Center, Site Brander, Newsroom, and the details section for any item in Event Management and Memberships.
