Here are the instructions which will help you create clickable thumbnails:

1) Upload the thumbnails with the file manager (you will find it under the "Site Manager" tab)
2) Drop a text widget on your page and add the thumbnails by clicking on the "insert image" icon on the text editing toolbar.
3) Create pages where full size versions of the images are displayed.
4) To make the thumbnail a link to the full sized image, click on "choose a link" in the properties sidebar and a link editor will open up that will allow you to create a link to the relevant page. Browse for the page you want, and click "ok"
5)When you are done, remember to go to "Edit Menu" and drag all the pages with the full size images "out of the menu" so that they do not appear in the main menu of your site!

Let me know how this works out for you!

When you're in a Text widget, you won't get the "choose a link" option in the properties sidebar as described above (you WILL get that option when you're in an Image widget....)

The way to make a thumbnail a link to the full-sized image, click on the "Insert Link" icon (looks like a chain link) which is located on the text editing toolbar. When the Link Editor dialog box opens, make sure the Page radio button (first row) is selected, hit the "...." button which allows you to browse all the pages you've created on your site. Once you find the relevant page with the full-sized version, click "OK."

Hi manda

No I don't think you are doing anything wrong. My guess is that you are using Internet Explorer and you are experiencing a bug! Sorry about this. We have fixed the bug and will make the fix available soon.

In the meantime you could either use another browser, like Firefox, or:
1) First type some text in the text widget and highlight it with your mouse
2) Then go through the steps for adding an image

For some reason this seems to work. Let me know if you are still stuck!

I make this by uploading the thumbnail and then attaching the full size image to it. (I use the "chain" icon, the one for creating links). This way I spare myself the time to create new pages.

But: when I click on the thumnail and it opens automatically in a "fit screen" mode instead of full size (with sliders).

How can make it to show full size?
