    Hi Elaine

    In Joomla 1.7, when linking to another article in website, is it possible to use a jpg or png image rather than highlighted text as the link trigger?

    Hi Elaine, I have same problem as Chris…I have an article with images down left had side. Each image points to a different artcile. How do I create that link. I don’t seem to get item menu ID and article correct. Each article is linked to a hidden menu hidden1-mi, hidden2-mi etc…
    Thank YOU
