How to make an entire text box a clickable link, not just the text.

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am having trouble making an entire text box a clickable link. I was able to target the block id to change color when hovering over it but now I want the ability to click the box to take you to a new page. A work around would be to make all the text a hyperlink and remove the underline but I would like the whole thing clickable. Anyone have any ideas?

(See reference photo below, I want to make the light blue rectangle, which is a text box, clickable)403258168_ScreenShot2022-03-26at12_05_32PM.thumb.png.4368b2b9385148178119b8e41c0da6c7.png

Hello,

I am also needing assistance with this.

I have text blocks overlaying the images blocks, I have custom css so the text appears on hover, I am hoping to make the whole text block a clickable link. I am unable to have the image block as a clickable link as the text block is overlaying it.

Thanks in advance 🙂

If you use Classic Editor Image Block, this will be easier to achieve.

Do you use Business Plan? We can use script code to make click

Hi Tuan,

Yes I have a business plan. I already have the pages setup, so I would rather try and use code to make them clickable if possible?

Thanks,

Sam

 

Can you add link for text block first? I will try CSS first to change text link to image link, if it doesn't work, we will use script code to add click event.

Hi,

I am also looking for an answer to this question.

I've added text boxes over staff images and custom code for a hover effect that displays name and role. Currently, I have added links to the the text so that a user can click on the person and go to their individual bio page. However, I'm looking to make the entire box "clickable" rather than just the text. Hopefully the solution is the same to the site above, but in case it's not, I'll provide my site below.

Add this to Design > Custom CSS then try clicking on image block

.fe-block-yui_3_17_2_1_1667609594184_339627 {
    pointer-events: none;
}

If you use Gallery Section, or Classic Editor Image Blocks, or Summary, it will be easier.
