Default HOW TO: Link a Layout from Gallery to Forum Post - Updated June 2020

Hi there, a couple of people have contacted me to ask how to make their layout 'clickable' after they have posted it in a thread. Hope this helps

Important: First make sure your settings are correct: Go to User CP (top left hand corner on brown toolbar)>Edit Options>Make sure the last setting on this page "Message Editor Interface" is set to the "Enhance Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing" Option.

Note: Have two browser tabs open, one with layout in the gallery and the other tab with the post you want to copy/link it to.


1. Go to the gallery and open your layout.

2. At the bottom of your layout, under Additional Information you will see the Direct Link box. Highlight and copy this link (CTRL+C):

3. Navigate to the post where you want to place the layout. Click on the 'yellow mountain' icon and paste the copied link (CTRL+V) into the box that opens and then click OK.

It will look like this if you are using Chrome:

That is all you need to do to post an image of a layout or product into the forum.


4. In your post, highlight the entire link so it looks like this (once highlighted it will be blue in colour):

5. Go back to the layout in the gallery and copy the URL address at the top of your browser. Simply click on it to highlight it and then use CTRL+C to copy.

6. Go back to your post. Make sure the entire code is still highlighted! Now click the LINK button on the toolbar, the "Blue world with a chain link" symbol.

7. Now paste (CTRL+V) the URL link in the box that pops up and click OK.

8. You are Done! After posting your post, when you hover your mouse over the layout, you will now will see the 'little hand' symbol to indicate that your page is 'clickable'. This allows other people to click on it to go straight to the gallery to leave some love on your page.

If you have any questions then please ask away!
