View Full Version : Creating Link

I am Dreamweaver ignorant. Hopefully you guys can help. I want to simply create a box on top of an inserted graphic that will link to another page. How to do this?

Thanks TJ

If you want the link to be on top of the image then best way is to set the image as a background to a div using CSS. Then create your link with perhaps some HTML text by typing 'click here' (or similar), highlighting that text and typing the address in the link section of Dreamweaver's interface. If you want the image itself to be a link then insert it into your div and click on it and set the link in the same way.

Hope that helps :)

Thanks Corrosive. If the graphic image is in the background will the created link stay in the same place as the page enlarges and shrinks with window size increasing and decreasing?

Are you talking about an image map which allows you to "draw" a link shape on top of a placed image? Looks like this article might explain it: http://www.dreamweavertutorial.co.uk/dreamweaver/articles/image-map-hotspots-dreamweaver.htm

Hot Spot that's what I'm looking for. Perfect thanks DW.
