  6. Save the link by clicking done

 

To create an image link on a static page

Firstly to add your image to a static page, please follow the steps in our "How To Use Images" help guide. Once the image has been added to the static page, please follow the steps below:

In this case the "Shop" Page has been chosen as the page to go to when the image is clicked.

(If you are adding a link to a Category in your Shop, then you will need to select "Shop" from the first drop down and then you will see a second drop down appear below where you can select the category in your Shop that you want to link to.)

5. Click insert and the image will become a link to that page

 

Lastly, remember to save changes to the page using the buttons at the bottom of the window.

You can also unlink images using the steps above but instead choosing the unlink button at step (.4) :
