Support » Fixing WordPress » HTML Link is not working

  • I want to add link to an image on my site, but I can’t make the link to work. It sits in the code, I can see it, but there is no response for mouse clicking. The issue seems silly, but Im having hard time finding what part of css is causing this. Appreciate any help. The image I want to add link to is the yellow bottom one(Billions…), the top one works well. http://www.boardofbooks.com/billion-dollar-lessons/ my site.

  • Hello Searay,

    If the code is truly there on the backend then it looks like theme is stripping out the code for that content block.

    If you use a commercial theme or plugin and need support, please go to their official support channel. In order to be good stewards of the WordPress community, and encourage innovation and progress, we feel it’s important to direct people to those official locations.

    Forum volunteers are also not given access to commercial products, so they would not know why your commercial theme or plugin is not working properly. This is one other reason why volunteers forward you to the commercial product’s vendors. The vendors are responsible for supporting their commercial product.

    Thanks,
    Sage

    The theme (or Visual Composer) is apparently not setup for thumbnail links in post content. As it is, the text div container “covers” the image in a way that the mouse cursor cannot “see” the link. We can see it, but the cursor cannot. Playing with z-index will not help this. You can confirm this by using your browser’s CSS tool to hide the text div container (with display: none;) so only the image is seen in content. The link will then work fine. For links to work the link/image and text content should be in the same div container.

    Either the theme’s template needs adjustment, or maybe how the thumbnail is added to the content in Visual Composer needs to be adjusted. Either way, as Sage mentioned, how to do this is beyond the scope of these forums.

    Thanks for the replies, I solved the problem with css. Thanks again. Can I ask the mods to strip the link from my post, please? Thanks

    Glad to hear it!

    If your question has been answered, we would love if you would mark this topic as resolved in the right hand sidebar. This helps our volunteers find the topics that still need attention and more people will get helped, possibly like you did.

    We don’t do that, see this section of the support handbook https://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Deleting_.2F_Editing_Posts
