Link image from home slider to a blog post

Hello AThemes team:

I am new to the Sydney theme, so not terribly familiar with it.

All I need to do is to link the first image that appears in the slider to this blog post > http://www.3dgeolaser.com/my-blog-page/ > that’s where the slider image should take the visitor to.

In other WP themes that I have used in the past I have easily linked images to other posts, pages, webs, etc., but Ive been unable to do so here in this page slider… Also the call to action button is set by default, therefore, affects all the images in the slider, which I don’t want to direct all to the same blog post. I only need the first image to link, that’s all.

I was in touch with the WP support team, but they said I needed to get the assistance directly from AThemes since this functionality is not from WP, but the specific slider used in the theme.

Looking forward to hearing some tips.

Many thanks in advance,
Veronica

Hi,

Please click on the image in WP Editor ( while on Visual tab ) and click the link icon from the toolbar, so you can set an image for the image there. More detailed steps you can find here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/links/image-links/

Dear Csaba,

Many thanks for your response and follow-up on our website’s slider issue.

As for the information you shared and sent on the link, I am aware of those steps and procedures, thats exactly how I have operated it in the past in other WP websites.

Let me explain myself: In this instance, I am not the website builder, I recently joined the team and I’ll be making all the relevant website updates. Please note, that the way the person built the site is not in a way in which images have been saved in Post and Pages, which means that the home slider images have been included as part of the websites default layout, as opposed to via Media > Library. I suspect this is why the image can not be linked to a blog post, therefore, I can not connect the slider images to other active links.

As for now, since we needed to get this information rolling on our homepage, I had to delete the other 3 slides pictures that we had in our home slider, so at the moment I have only kept a static image with an action button to the blog post with the relevant information that we wish to share, however, we do not want it to appear like this, we want the first slide with the info and the other 3 images on the header slider to appear as well please.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this matter.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi,

Yes, the home slider image is a background image, that can’t be linked, but the image on this page: http://www.3dgeolaser.com/my-front-page/my-blog-page/ the image is added as a content image which can be linked with the method I’ve described in my previous post.

Kind Regards,
Csaba
