When I type in a web address in the "Link To:' box to link an image to another website, it isn't working right.  It adds my website's address to the beginning of the external web address.  For example, click on this page:  http://www.rockyriverchamber.com/Expo.html and click on Cleveland Clinic logo.  The address in my LInk To box on Sitebuilder says www.myclevelandclinic.org but when you look at my website, it tries to go to www.rockyriverchamber.com.www.myclevelandclinic.org  Same thing for the logos of SPooner, Giant Eagle, lutheran West, Normandy, NEOMG, Paychex, MVP and Rockport Observer.  I don't see that I"m doing anything wrong there.  Glitch in the system?

Hi Liz2233,

No glitch, you are just a tiny bit off.  The use existing page or file is for items residing on your site, so it ads your domain name to the front.  To connect to an external address, use the URL option.  I have pictured it below.



Hope that helps.

I'm linking from a .jpg Image, not text.  I don't see that option to link from an image. All I see on the right is "Link To:" followed by a box.  I have about a dozen other images on that page, used the same "Link To" box and they work fine, but some of them that I updated recently do not.

Excellent! I didn't actually realize that would work.  Good to learn something new.
