    Hi Howard -

    The above walks you through how to make an image a link. Text is very similar -- you just need to highlight the text then follow the steps above.

    Thanks,
    Aubrey

    Follow the steps above. When you get to step #4, click the 2nd button, which is to link to a URL.

    I like your comment, Gerard. I feel the same way. I appreciate the Homestead Community help.

    Sub pages for roster pics.


    I am having trouble getting what I want out of my site. I run a wrestling company and I am trying to put up a roster page. I would like to have each roster pic be clickable and open to a new page that has the picture plus a bio. I just am not sure how to go about this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    After you create the new pages with the bios, then create the links as shown here.

    I'm trying to post an image from my files in file manager but it isn't appearing in the website I visit. This makeover of Homestead is making me confused and annoyed because it's troublesome. It used to be very easy to link images in my files manager.

    AliceAdvent.homestead.com.  My Diocese want me to set it up so anyone looking at our website can click on a link & send that individual an email to their email at yahoo/gmail/aol/sbcglobal.net/att.net/ etc.   How can I link a persons photo to accomplish this? i.e., I need to do this for about 15 different photos and emails.

     Follow the instructions above, but instead of browse, select email address and enter the email you want to send to. Keep in mind the site visitor must have a default email client configured for this type of link to work.

    This does not discuss what you use as a link to the page you want to link the picture too. The sitebuilder URL for that page obviously doesnt work. Is there a back door to be able to access that pages published URL?I have American Bulldogs. I am trying to link a picture on my females page to that dogs personal page.

    The URL you use would be the domain name plus the page name.

    http://www.yourdomain.com/pagename.html.

    Does that help?

    Select the item on your website, copy the URL from the address bar and use this address to link your item.

    Linking a button is very similar to linking an image. When you have the button selected, click Link on the right, then click Existing Page or File, and browse for the specified page.

    I did this.  When I publish it and try the link, it comes up with this:
    This site can’t be reached

    www.pilotclubofbaytown.com’s server IP address could not be found.

    Hi Anikka3207, this is a very common error. pilotclubofbaytown.com is not a registered domain. You can register if you like, but your domain is pilotclubofbaytown.org.

    Hi, I understand the explanation of how to link images to another page on my site, but, I am not ready to publish my site to see how the link works. I'm not sure how publishing the site before it is finished will affect my editing and I don't want to replace my old site until this new mobile friendly version is done. Help!

    Publishing your site will not effect your editing, but if you aren't ready to publish, simply wait until you are. You can see how anything will work on your site by using the preview option.

    CREATE A LINK TO ANOTHER ELEMENT ON A DIFFERENT PAGE: You can select the URL from the address line and paste it into your Link command box. If the image or text on the page has an anchor link, you can select that element and the URL will include that specific element. Using that URL address will target that specific element. For example: Select any element on the page and produce an anchor link for that element. Save and publish. Use your browser, navigate and select that element in your site. You will see that the URL address has changed to include the anchor linked item. Copy that URL and paste that as your target link in your Link command box in Image Settings or Text Settings.

    I have no idea what this means. What is an anchor link? I dont want to link to an element. I want to link to one of my pages! I don't want to publish yet, I want to see how it works first and if I can make it do what I want.

    It looks like I can't link from items in a gallery, I tried uploading an image outside of the gallery element and that links fine to the page... am I right about linking from pics in the gallery element?

    Sitebuilder Plus? If you cannot single out the image, you'll not be able to be able to link it.

    If you want to link a single image in a gallery, you'll need to turn off the setting "pop-up when clicked"

    Click on the image, click More > Advanced > Size & Postition. The setting will be under that section.
