how do you link a picture to a site
like putting a pic on your homepage, then you click and it takes you to the group you are sponsoring?

Okay. Hmm. Lets see. How to explain.

When you post a picture, you get a large chunk of coding, right? Well, if you read the beginning of it, you will stumble upon this: <a href=whatever the link is> All you have to do is take that link that follows the equal sign, and delete it. Then, insert the URL code (the link) behind the equal sign. Boom!

It's called copy and paste. Edit an existing creation, add the picture, mess with the link if you're going to do that, and then in another tab, edit your homepage, and just copy the chunk over. I discovered this on my own, and not to really sound rude, but everytime you've put something here, it feels like you have to be given babysteps in order to complete a task when you could just explore and experiment.

I'm inclined to agree that with a little investigation on their own some of the queries posted in this group could be dealt with without asking for help.

I find if I'm unsure checking here first http://www.mocpages.com/help/ often answers my question.

As for linking images to the home page that depends where you are getting the images from, if it is hosted in one of your own mocs the simplest solution is to go to the moc, click edit as if you were going to make changes and then cut and paste the section of code relating to the image you want, then select and cut the section of code you want to use.

Now go to your home page and select edit home page, and paste the code there. Simples.
