I want to use coloured blobs as link buttons.
I'm trying and failing to achieve this in all sorts of ways.
Any tips?

Assuming the coloured blobs are images, click to highlight and then click the link icon in the toolbar.

hmmm... for some reason they are PHP files.
I'm having all sorts of trouble.
I may go back to square one!

Hi there Lol,

To my knowledge, PHP is not accepted and won't work with the Yola builder (I may be wrong). If you could find a way to get the coloured blobs in JPEG, PNG or any other image format, you can make them links by clicking 'Edit' on the top left corner of the widget box and clicking 'Choose A Link' to enter a URL.

Regards,
Brandon

Hey Brandon, you're right, Yola doesn't allow PHP as it could cause problems and it is a very powerful programming language. Yola uses PHP, but we aren't aloud to upload PHP because of the security risks.

I gave up and used Publisher to create coloured blocks.
They look ok but I would have liked to have matched the colours to the HTML colours already on the site.
