If you are creating a website, you probably have some existing content that you want to incorporate into it. You don't need to convert everything to
webpage elements. Rather, you can add entries to your website structure that simply point to other documents available at your web address.
As described in the previous section, the
tocentry element in your
layout.xml file can take an
href attribute instead of
file attributes. The
href value can point to other documents on your site, using an absolute or relative URL. You just need to add an
id attribute and a
title element. Following are two examples, one pointing to another website, and the other using a relative reference.
<tocentry id="nwalsh.com" href="http://nwalsh com"> <title>Norm Walsh's Website</title> </tocentry> <tocentry id="mybook" href="../mybook/index.html"> <title>My Book</title> </tocentry>
Any relative URL is taken as relative to the
output-root directory for your website (starting with Website version 2.4).
If you want to cross reference from your webpages to the additional content, you can set up your site to use external olinks with the
target.database.document parameter. See the section “Linking to other sites” for
