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.


PART 1 - COPYING THE LAYOUT IMAGE

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.



PART 2 - LINKING THE LAYOUT:

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!

Ona, I haven't tested your method yet with Anna's FB groups, but when I used the link below the photo, I only get an image in FB that IS clickable but not to the gallery with credits.

I want people to see what I've used also so...how do I do that?

I'm not sure exactly what you are trying to do Maureen, so I might be misunderstanding, but I don't think Facebook posts are going to work the same way as posting in the forum here at Oscraps. Ona's directions are for when you are posting something in a thread here at the Oscraps forum and you want that picture to be clickable and take you to your layout in the gallery.

Are you trying to upload something to Facebook and make it link back to the gallery here at Oscraps?

Thanks Sara. I was hoping that, in Facebook, I could use 'copy image address' to add the gallery full image and have that link back to the gallery. Nope. I do know how to make a linkable image in many forum galleries.

The only thing that seems to work for me is to upload my full image (ha FB, you're getting a big file!) and then say...For Credits (and insert the url address from the top of the page.) I don't see any simple way to make my photo be linkable itself in FB.

Got it! I haven't tried to do that in Facebook. Maybe someone else has an idea!

Maureen, not sure about that in FB either. I guess the only thing you need to think about there is if you are Hotlinking from the O to Facebook. Sara would know more about that but I would think that linking from the O to anywhere else in digiland would create a Hotlink, ie, using Oscraps to 'host' the image at the other site. Perhaps Sara or Vicki might clarify that?

Hope you are keeping well Maureen! xx

Thanks very much for this instruction. I'm going to bookmark this page! What I haven't caught onto is adding the challenge name to the link. Is there a special field that i need to use, and where is it? I'm sure there's an article in the forum that tells how to do this, but I can't find it
