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