Creating linkable banners and images...

Post by raiderneal2112 on December 12th 2011, 6:57 pm

Hello,

I'd like to have a few images that are clickable/linkable that take viewers to another website. How do I accomplish this with my Forumotion site? For example, I'd like to have a banner or image on the side/bottom of the my forum that reads, "subscribe now to Colorado Outdoors Magazine." Viewers would click on the banner and then be redirected to another webpage. Ideally, I'd like to have two or three of these clickable images appearing on my forum home page.

Thanks!

this is a BBcode way to make a Image clickable to take you to another site:

[url=URL OF THE SITE YOU WANT IT TO TAKE YOU TO GOES HERE][img]THE URL OF THE IMAGE GOES HERE[/img][/url]

Try with bbcode:
Code:

[url=link][img]img link[/img][/url]

Or HTML
Code:

<a href="link" target="_blank"><img src="img link"></a>

You can add a div, and edit them.

Like that:

Code:
<div class="class-3"
<a href="link" target="_blank"><img src="img link"></a>
</div>

and css:
Code:

.class-3 { border: 1px solid black;}

or


Code:
<div id="class-4"
<a href="link" target="_blank"><img src="img link"></a>
</div>

and css:

Code:

#class-4 { border: 1px solid black;}

Guys,

Thanks for your replies. However, all this coding is foreign to me. Isn't there a way just to upload an image and creat a link? Similar to using Wordpress or other "userfriendly" website templates? Is there not a widget that would allow me to post a few images/banners at the top or bottom of my forum that viewers could click on?

Thanks

Use the code I post posted. You need to use this code, without code you can't do want you want. Smile
