Thank you for your email. You can easily turn pictures or banners into clickable links - another effective way to help people navigate your site.

1. Add the picture to your page, using the Picture Widget.
2. Click on the "Properties" tab on the right-hand sidebar.
3. Click on "Choose a Link" and make your selection from the link options provided.
4. The Link Editor dialog box will open, add a link to one of the four categories and then click "OK". Your link will now be displayed in the Properties tab of the Content Sidebar.
5. Then click on "Apply" located at the bottom of the Content Sidebar.

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

Hint: If you insert your picture in a Text Widget (instead of a Picture Widget) you can turn it into a link by selecting the picture and then clicking the "Link" button on the Text Editing Toolbar. From there, follow the same steps as outlined above.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance!

Hello, if you are using a image widget to display the banner, you can just click on "Properties" on the sidebar when you have the image widget highlighted. Then, it has options. Type in the url you want the banner to go to when you click it. Then, click "OK" or "Save"

If you are using an HTML widget, than, you can use an a tag. Ok, first, go into the HTML widget (double click on it) and the code will pop up. If it has a <a href="..."> part on the first part, then, it already has an HTML a tag in it and all you have to do is add the URL you want the banner to go to into the href="" part. Make sure to put http:// in front of the URL unless you want it to go to your website with a 404 page. Now, if there isn't one, just add one. So, right before the <img src=""> part, add in this: <a href="" > and then at the end after that whole code in that HTML widget, put this in: </a>

I hope this helps! If you have any questions, ask me! :)
