Glad to help! To get started, can you share the link to your website so I can see where you're trying to make this change?

Ok great! Do you want the slides to all go to the same link, or for each slide to go to a different link?

To make this change, you'll have to make some edits to your code files. This might get just a bit complicated.

 

How comfortable are you with writing code in your code files?

Go to your code files and search "slideshow". What comes up?

It's the first file. Can you take a screenshot of the file just to confirm?

We're on the right file. Here's where it may get a bit complicated. 

 

What I would do first, is make a copy of this file and save it as a backup.

 

Next, you'll want to go to where the slides begin (you'll see something like for) and add a <a href="".> This will be the link to open to another page. You'll then have to also add a block at the bottom of your "schema", which will give you the option to add the link to each individual slide. At this point everything should be working.

 

I know this might seem a little confusing, and this is a bit of a time-consuming process, so if you need help setting this up, I'm glad to help.

I see the issue. The <a href""> should not have the for loop wrapped around it like that. I think the code structure is a little bit messed up, but no worries.

 

Would you want me to set this up for you to get you up and running as soon as possible?
