How do I link an image to a web page in a topic or entity description?

Images placed in a topic or entity description using the RadEditor can be hyperlinked to another page.

  1. In the RadEditor, click the icon image shape in the editor to select it.
  2. Select the hyperlink manager in the menu.

  3. In the Hyperlink Manager, set the URL to the relative path of an internal page (everything following the root of the site such as entering s-1-best-sellers.aspx where the full URL is http://www.mysite.com/s-1-best-sellers.aspx or under a subfolder such as http://www.mysite.com/shop/s-1-best-sellers.aspx), or use the full URL of an external page (such as http://www.othersite.com/).
  4. Click OK, Update the topic or entity page, and reset the cache in the Admin Console.

  5. Tip
    If you are linking to an external page, it is often a good idea to set the Target to 'New Window' so the storefront site remains available on a browser tab.

    NOTE: This may not function in Chrome browsers with ML8 software versions. If using Internet Explorer (or Firefox with ML8100) to perform this task is not possible, then you can set HTML tags in the HTML mode of the Rad Editor, as such:

    <a href="http://www.aspdotnetstorefront.com" target="_blank"><img alt="Cool image" src="/Images/coolimage.gif" /></a>
