There is a gallery of picture in the template that I am using. I would like to add a link to the pictures to where if someone click on the picture it would take them to another page. Can anyone help me figure this out. First timer with Yola. Thanks!

Drag a HTML widget onto your page and place this text in it for each picture:

<a href="full address of place to link to" title="a title for the picture-link">
<img src="address of a picture" /></a>

Hello tracy

If you mean pictures that you added to your Yola website using the Picture Gallery Widget, I'm afraid it won't be possible to link from these pictures. There is only an automatic link from a thumbnail version to the enlarged light box version of a picture, but you cannot link anywhere from the light box view.

A workaround would be to create your custom picture gallery manually by using the Picture or Text Widget. You will be able to link from a picture that you add via the Picture Widget, the Text Widget, or an HTML Widget as Philip suggested above.
