I have a background image that fills my entire site, and I would like to make it a link that leads to another area of my site. How can I make the background image a clickable link?
I want the page to stay exactly how it is; no text or anything, just the single image.

Hi there Jesse,
Unfortunately as far as I know you cannot make your background click-able.

I would suggest choosing a blank style and adding a large image and then linking that image.

Alternatively you could add a few smaller transparent images (.png usually works best) and then link those images and it will seem as though your background is click-able.

Here is how to add links to your images:

1. Add the image to your page, using the image widget.
2. Click on 'Properties' on the right-hand sidebar.
3. Click on 'Choose a Link' and make your selection.
4. Click on 'Apply'

To check that your link is working, preview your page and then click on the link.

This is a brief explanation of how to add links, we have written a tutorial that shows the process in more detail. Here is the link: Creating Links .

I hope this helps.

I'm going with the png method. Can't stretch the image to fill the whole screen, but it works pretty nicely. Thank you!
