Default How to Link to a Layout OR Product to a Forum Post - Updated March 19 2019

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

These steps can be used to either get an image from the store or the gallery and then link them (so that people can just click on the image in your post and be taken to the store or gallery).

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 OR store product and the other tab with the post you want to copy it to.

1. Go to the gallery or the store and open your layout or a product.

2. For a layout: At the bottom of your layout, under Additional Information you will see the Direct Link box. Highlight and copy this link (CTRL+C) OR use the right click method as shown for a product image below (an image is an image )

For a product: Right click on the product image and select the Copy Image Address (Chrome browser) - you may have different wording if using another browser.

3. Navigate to the post where you want to put the layout or product image. 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, with [IMG] code at the beginning and [/IMG] at the end, whether it is a layout image or product image:

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


To LINK the layout or product image to either the gallery or store, continue with these steps:

4. 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 or the product in the store 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. Then 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 or product image, 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 or go straight to store to see the product!


If you want to preview your post before submitting it:

You can always check to see if your links and images are appearing before you post.

At the bottom of your Edit screen click the Go Advanced button

Then click the Preview Post button. The preview appears but if you want to change anything, scroll down to the bottom to find the Editor screen.

After any changes you make you need to click the Preview Post button to see the changes.

When you are happy with everything you can then go ahead and click the Submit Reply button to post in the forum.

Hope this helps
