How do I link from one board to another in CoughDrop?

Multiple communication boards can be connected to allow for deeper, richer vocabulary sets for users. Users can make copies of or personalize communication boards they find and connect boards from different authors together, or create their own sub-boards. When users download a backup or print a copy of their vocabulary set, it will include not just their home board but all linked boards as well.
