Clickable Images

Is there any way to put in a link associated with an image in the Power Gallery? For example, I click an image and it brings me to a website.

not the image itself, but you can add link code in the image description.

links dont work

I'm trying to set up an anchor tag for a link on the description area but it is showing the code as plain text... do you know why?

make sure the link is not being html encoded. for example, it should look like this in the admin section:

<a href="mylink.htm">link</a>





not like:

&lt;a href="mylink.htm"&gt;link&lt;/a&gt;

make sure you are using the first code example, not the second one, the second one is an example of what NOT to use.

I did that ... still didn't work

I typed that into the description field just like I would a in an html page. Apparently, it is converting the characters < > to text. Any reason why?

I'm testing on Safari and Firefox on a Macbook Pro

When I test the link in my browser and it doesn't work ... I just want to be clear that I am testing on a Mac (brand new) with Safari (latest version) and Firefox (latest version).

Here's the page I'm working on.

ribbon.php

I have the linking code in the first item. You will see it in the description. It doesn't open on a Mac at all. It will open in IE on a Windows computer.
