How to get images as hyperlinks for other pages (9 posts)

    Hi, I am working on a website for a band and they want a box containing images of their albums on the left of the body for the homepage. Each of these images can be clicked on and will take you to a page about the album you clicked on. I'm using the Graphene theme, what is the best way to go about doing this? If you think I should use coding I don't know any so any code provided I'll put in the comments in the code it was you not me that made it.

    Thanks

    Did you try something like the following html?
    <a href="http://www.yoursite.com/yourpageurl/"><img width="" height="" src="http://www.yourpageurl.com/image.jpg"></a>

    Where would I put this in at? Just in editor?

    How can I place the image in the left of the body text? Do I do it in the body or in a sidebar widget?

    Try it only on text editor (not visual).

    Try a code like the one below to align images left:
    <a href="http://www.yoursite.com/yourpageurl/"><img align=left width="" height="" src="http://www.yourpageurl.com/image.jpg"></a>

    Where should the images be so the code can put the images to the left and then does the code hyperlink the images so that users can go to the different pages for each image?

    for the text editor you are referring to you mean the Editor under the Appearance menu?

    You should have the images in your server (media library) or other sources from where you can hotlink.

    Yes.

    I have them on my pc, should I get them onto my site like in a portfolio or a gallery, not for people to view, but have loaded into the wordpress site? Or should I use something like filezilla and install images where wordpress is installed for the site?

    You can upload using your dashboard, FTP program, or through your host's File Manager/ or whatever your host has provided. It makes no difference. If you have more images on a page, reduce the images to the desired thumbnail sizes before uploading so that they may work well and load faster.
