Debut Theme: Image with Text Overlay Clickable Image

44 0 7

Hey, im trying to make the image with text overlay clickable so it can link to all my products. I saw other people tell how to do it and they pasted codes and they worked but each time it would mess something up. For example, one time it made my image very large and zoomed in. Could someone give me a guide on how i can achieve this clickable image? Thanks.

Hey man!  

I had the same problem and I could solve it! 
I just wanna share this because I believe in good karma or whatever haha.

It is kind of simple if you just copy-paste my code


1- Open slideshow.liquid

2- Search for  "<div
{% unless block_image.alt == blank %}
aria-label="{{ block_image.alt | escape }}"
data-alt="{{ block_image.alt | escape }}"
{% endunless %}
class="slideshow__image box ratio-container lazyload{% unless forloop.first %} lazypreload{% endunless %} js"
data-bg="{{ block_image | img_url: '300x300' }}"
data-bgset="{% include 'bgset', image: block_image %}"


3-Right above it, paste the following code:

{%- if block.settings.image_link != blank -%}
<a class="slide__link" href="{{ block.settings.image_link }}"></a>
{%- endif -%}


4 - Search for "image_picker"


5-Right below it's closing tag }, paste the following code:

"type": "url",
"id": "image_link",
"label": "Image Link"

---Position for pasting the last code shown----

"settings": [
"type": "image_picker",
"id": "image",
"label": {
"de": "Foto",
"en": "Image",
"es": "Imagen",
"fr": "Image",
"it": "Immagine",
"ja": "画像",
"nl": "Afbeelding",
"pt-BR": "Imagem",
"zh-CN": "图片",
"zh-TW": "圖片"



6 - Save your work

7 - Go to theme.scss.liquid and after to its last line of code

8 - Post the following code there:

/* CSS Trick for clickable slide */
.slide__link {
z-index: 999;
position: absolute;
width: 100%;
height: 100%;


9 - Save it


What should happen is the addition of a field on your slide configuration called "Image Link". Your can browse your store's page and make it the clickable link of the slide selected.


I hope this helps many people as I struggle and got this working!!! 

And also kudos to


One guy shows how to do it in minimal theme. I got the answer from him.

Have a nice day and good luck!!!
