How can I link my help center to my website? I want to redirect my customers to my help center when they click on the Contact button on my website.
You can link your help center to your website by making changes to the website's code and brand your current help center theme for a seamless experience. There are three steps to achieve this workflow:
Customizing your help center
Host mapping (optional)
By default, the address of your help center contains your Zendesk subdomain, such as "mycompany" in mycompany.zendesk.com. However, you can map a subdomain of your own domain, such as support.mycompany.com, to your default Zendesk address. This way, your customers will not see your Zendesk subdomain. This is called host mapping and for more information on this, see this article: Host mapping - Changing the URL of your help center.
Linking your website to your help center
Link your help center on your website. If you don't feel comfortable working with HTML, reach out to an experienced web designer to assist you. Generally, your website may have a 'Contact' or 'Support' button located in the navigation bar, which you can link to your help center. An example of what this looks like can be found below.

<li>. The HTML
<a> element, the anchor element, creates a hyperlink to other web pages, files, locations within the same page, or any other URL.
Here is an example of the HTML code which is usually located in the header:
To set up a redirect, replace the part
<a href="#support"> with
The example below shows how this would look within the code block, using a host-mapped domain.
If the 'Contact' or 'Support' button is not present, add one quickly into your navigation bar following the steps above.
