    I am trying to find a way to put a MaxButton on top of an illustration of a page created in GIMP

    The front page of my website was designed in GIMP and I placed it as an illustration. You will see it is divided in three columns. These are NOT WordPress columns. I built them into my illustration. I would like to place a button in a specific place on my page. Namely, directly under the illustration on the left with cover art for the album “Connect the Dots”. I am trying to provide a link from my front page to my music store where the album is sold.

    Is it possible to add a MaxButton over an illustration. I also left a small empty space where I could place shortcode, but I’m not sure if WP is only reading the space as part of the illustration.

    I’m a newbie to css, shortcode, WP and GIMP or Photoshop. I’m learning this on they fly. I have to say I’m having a great time, but it is difficult for me to find tutorials or documentation of what I want to do. It would be nice to keep designing pages with GIMP/Photoshop, but if I can not use link buttons to other pages, I’ll have to stick strictly to WP Blocks.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Oef. There is a way to put html on an image, but I wouldn’t recommend it in this case.

    There is a reason why designers often use Gimp / Photoshop and after that convert it into HTML and CSS pieces:

    – Search engines will ignore all your text, your page will never rank anywhere
    – It’s not scalable and not easy to change your texts / content
    – On mobile devices nor on bigger screens it will be readable
    – No possibility for interactions / links / etc
    – Etc

    You can search the web a bit for more reasons why making pages like this is a very bad idea. It’s a better idea to spent some time doing a few html / css tutorials to get a grip of the basics. It’s more work, but it will pay off in the end.
