Just looked at your site...it's looking really good. If I understand what you mean correctly you want the photo on the home page to link to another page? You cannot link from the slide show, but you can add a static photo and link from that. Just add a content block in your home page editor, upload a photo to that block, and add the link (internal or external link can be added)

Ah right yes. So you have somehow managed to link the first. You need to do the same with the other
Without seeing the admin side it's hard to say how this is being displayed. First step go to your home page editor and open the block that you created that displays those two photos. See how the bean bag is linked and do the same for the lens cover, adding the correct url

and while you're in admin you could change the words copy write to copyright in the footer so it looks a bit more professional Smile

Pete I did not make this original website, so I am not sure what to do ,the bean bag small thumbnail photo is in a block, what I done was I added a 2nd photo in this block , but I do not know how to link it to the page I have on my menu bar which is waterproof lens cover this has a page to it , I want the same when I click on the thumbnail photo waterproof lens cover , thanks Pete, so still not sure how to do it thanks trevor

Pete the URL for the bean bag has this text in it " trevorhannant.foliopic.com/page/camera-bean-bag-4356 " but not sure how to do the waterproof lens cover photo in the same block thanks trevor

in the block double click on the new photo that doesn't have a link and a pop up will appear
Set link type to url if it isn't already set as default
set protocol to http:// if it isn't already set as default
Pastein the url of the page you want to go to... in this case

then click ok

and when the pop up window closes click Update and it should then work

that's in admin>settings>website details
scroll to the bottom of the page and you'll see a block titled Copyright Message where you can change the incorrect spelling
Edit Ah right - well found Smile
