Are options for adding links in text are different on adding link in photos? What I mean the option to open a link in a new windows works perfectly on text but on photo, it seems that the option for opening a new window for the link is not available?

Good day,

Thanks for your message.

We have notified our engineers of the problem with linking images to open in a new window and they are working on solving it as soon as possible.

In the meantime, as a workaround you can use the Text Widget. Please follow these steps:

1. Drag and drop a Text Widget on to your page and add the image by clicking on the "Picture" button (the one with the green tree) on the Text Editing Toolbar.

2. Click the image so that it is highlighted, then choose the "Link" button on the Text Editing Toolbar.

3. The Link Editor will open up. It will allow you to create a link to an external page.

4. Enter the full URL of the destination page.

5. Click the "Open in new window" option and click Save.

6. Save your page and republish your site so that your changes will be reflected on your live site.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience while we resolve this matter.
