I want to make a custom widget on the homepage click through to a URL. How can I do this?
Go into the control panel and on the left look for Custom/Embedded Widgets down under Design.
Click Add Custom Widget. Give the widget a title, then enter any code that you need to enter for your link. You'll probably want to check Display in a Standard Widget Box to match the rest of your widgets.
Once you have saved it go back to the home page and click Manage Widgets on Home Page. Click Add Widget. Click Custom Widgets, then the Widget that you just made. Drag and drop it in the oder that you want it, then click Exit Edit Mode.
Okay, I did that but it's just displaying the graphic. So I'll probably need to get design to write code that enables the design to be clicked through?
Yes, you need the code to turn the image into a link.
something like this
<a href="www.wherethelinkgoes.com"><img src="image.jpg" /></a>
Gotcha! Thanks so much.
