How do you link a banner?

How can you have it so that when someone clicks your banner, it takes you to your index page?

I have had several visitors tell me that they find this function close to essential.

It must be possible as it's such a basic thing, I haven't seen a website that doesn't have it, and Yola has been around a number of years now.

I think I've just missed something obvious.

Please end my misery!

Thanks for the response. But it's such a basic function!?

I would like to get a response from a Yola representative/employee if possible.

Hello George, 

If you have the default page heading, this will automatically link back to your index page. Otherwise, the only way to link your banner back to the index page is by using a bannerless style such as NoFrills or SqueakyClean and inserting your banner using a Picture Widget. Then, you can create a picture link back to your index page. 

I hope you can use the suggestions given.

Thanks for the response Sanja,

Is there a way to format the font (type, size and colour) of the default page heading?

If I changed the style to a bannerless one, would there be any problems with format compatibility, images etc. used with the current style?

And if I used a bannerless style, would the banner still be at the very top of the page (as in touching the top, with no gap)?

And if I inserted the banner using a picture widget, as you suggest, would I have to do that for each individual page on my website (20+)?

Hello George,

Yes.. you can format the page heading! You can find instructions on how to do this here.

If you use a bannerless style, there will be a gap and you will need to add it to each page.

It sounds like formatting the page heading may be your best bet!

Thanks Sanja, I think that is the solution to my problem!

I'll try it out and let you know on this page if I have any problems.
