# How to make clickable links and cross-references in pdfs produced by LaTeX?

How can I make things link url references, my index, table of contents, and cross references clickable links in documents produced by LaTeX? I generally use pdflatex to produce my documents.

The hyperref package does all of these things. you may need to include it with options like backlinksbackref to get back references, but it does everything you need.
Once you start using hyperref, you might well ask yourself: How can I remove the ugly borders around clickable crossreferences and hyperlinks? For even more issues regarding this package, check out the top questions tagged with {hyperref}. –  doncherry Nov 1 '11 at 12:22
The documentation is pretty voluminous. To just create a simple hyperlink, this worked for me: \usepackage{hyperref} at the top after the other usepackages, and \href{url}{linktext} where I want to put a link. –  nealmcb Oct 25 '12 at 2:04
The option is called backref, not backlinks. –  Cerran Mar 7 '14 at 17:32
