This article describes the steps for adding URLs/hyperlinks to lots in Proxibid.
This article contains the following sections:
Adding Hyperlinks Manually in AuctionBuilder
URLs manually added to the Lot Description field in AuctionBuilder must utilize an HTML tag in order for them to be clickable in the catalog on Proxibid.com.
The code below is used to turn text into a clickable link:
<a href="url">link text</a>
For example, if the Lot Description should say "Click here for more information" with the text being a clickable link to a URL, then the following should be entered into the Lot Description field:
<a href="www.otherwebsite.com">Click here for more information</a>
If the URLs are not tagged as hyperlinks using HTML, potential bidders will need to copy the URL and paste it into a browser window in order to access the link/site.
Adding Hyperlinks via Wavebid
Hyperlinks added to the Lot Description field in Wavebid can be exported to Proxibid and will appear as clickable links in the catalog. For information on how to do so, please see the Add Hyperlinks to Lots help article in the Wavebid Help Center.
Once the hyperlinks are added to the lots, they can be exported to Proxibid.
When viewing the Lot Description in AuctionBuilder, the full URL will be visible, rather than the clickable link.
However, when viewing the lot in the catalog on Proxibid.com, the text will appear as the clickable link that was entered in Wavebid.
