When the JCE link button is used to link items to each other within the database it will not break when it is renamed i.e. add alink in an article to a menu item then the menu item is renamed. If linked via a database the link will still work. If you paste in a URL from a page to a link it will break if it is renamed.
Using this method also pulls formatting and modules from menu item.
1. Open the article or custom HTML module you would like to link to a menu.
2. Select or add the text you want to become a link.
3. Click the link button
4. Expand the Menu
5. Find the menu item you want to link to for this example we are looking for the "What is Joomla" menu item select it and click Insert.
Note: The Target dropdown allows you to specify if you want the link to replace the current page (default) or open in a new window (our reccomendation).
Save and close
