How do I set up an image to link to an external website?

  • erinclark


    Hi – LOVE THIS THEME! And your support is always exceptional.

    I’d like to have a series of images on one of my pages set up so that when you click on any one image, you are re-directed to an external website. For example, at, when you click on the “Big Country 101” logo, you are taken to How do I accomplish this?

    Thanks so much!

    After you select an image, and then upload, a dialogue box appears asking for title, alternate text, etc. Scroll down and there is a box labeled “Link URL” — you can enter the appropriate URL there.

    After you enter the picture, you can go back and edit it, and then change it so the link opens in a new window. (Why WP doesn’t give you the opportunity to do this when you first upload the image, I don’t know.)

    You can always check the WordPress Codex for other tips and techniques.




    Thank you Ken 🙂 I tried that and it wasn’t working, but I’ll try again. I thought it SHOULD be that easy, but maybe I overlooked something. I just tried to update a simple plugin and NOW I can’t see ANYTHING ON MY SITE! I can’t even get to the wordpress login page for my site – I’m terrified I’ve lost everything and I have no idea who to even ask about what went wrong. It was updating a plugin – and then everything went white. Do you have any ideas how I start fixing this?


    THANKS for any help you can give!

    Beware the evil widget!

    Good luck,




    thanks – nothing’s working so far, but I’ll get this figured out. In the meantime, there’s prayer 🙂

    Have a great week,

    If you have FTP access to the site, just rename the wp-content/plugins folder to something else, like wp-content/plugins_old. That’ll force WP to deactivate all plugins.
