One customization request that our team has seen a lot of demand for is making the slideshow of a theme clickable. In this guide, we will go through the necessary steps to achieve this by adding some code to the Slideshow theme file. The result will have your slideshow going from this:

 

To this:

 

 

 

 

Step One: Edit Your Theme Code:

Go to Online Store > Current Theme > Actions > Edit Code. 

 

Debut: 

  1. Open slideshow.liquid
  2. Find the following:

<div id="slickSlide-{{ block.id }}" 

On older versions of Debut it may be <div class="slideshow__slide slideshow__slide--{{ block.id }}" {{ block.shopify_attributes }}> 

    3. Add this snippet of code right below it:

 

<style>
  .slide__link {
    width: 100%;  
    height: 100%;  
    position: absolute;  
    z-index: 9;
  }
</style>
<a class="slide__link" href="{{ block.settings.button_link }}"></a>

 

    4 Click Save

 

Narrative: 

  1. Open slideshow.liquid and find <img
  2. Add the following right above it: 
    <style>
      .slide__link {
        width: 100%;
        height: 100%;
        position: absolute;
        z-index: 9;
      }
      {% if cta == blank %}
      .slideshow__heading-cta.btn {
        display: none;
      }
    {% endif %}
    </style>
    <a href="{{ block.settings.cta_link }}" class="slide__link"></a>
    

      3. Click Save

 

Minimal:

  1. Open slider.liquid, find  <img
  2. Add the following right above it: 
    <style>
      .slide__link {
        width: 100%;  
        height: 100%;  
        position: absolute;  
        z-index: 2;
      }
    </style>
    <a class="slide__link" href="{{ block.settings.button_link }}"></a>
    ​

     3. Click Save. 

 

 

Brooklyn, Boundless, and Simple:

  1. Open slideshow.liquid, and find <img
  2. Add this right above it: 
    <style>
      .slide__link {
        width: 100%;  
        height: 100%;  
        position: absolute;  
        z-index: 9;
      }
    </style>
    <a class="slide__link" href="{{ block.settings.button_link }}"></a>
  3. Click Save. 

Venture:

  1. Open slideshow.liquid
  2. Find <img, add the following right above it: 
    <style>
      .slide__link {
        width: 100%;  
        height: 100%;  
        position: absolute;  
        z-index: 999999;
      }
      .hero-content__controls {
        width: fit-content;
      }
    </style>
    <a class="slide__link" href="{{ block.settings.button_link }}"></a>
    
    
    ​
  3. Find <h2, add this right above it:
    <a class="slide__link" href="{{ block.settings.button_link }}"></a>​
  4. Click Save. 

 

Step 2: Add your link to your slideshow:

Once you have finished editing your code you will be ready to add your link to your slideshow. To do so, go to Online Store > Themes > Customize > Slideshow and click on an image block. You will then be able to add the link under ‘Button link’.

  1. From your Shopify Admin go to: online store > themes > actions > edit code
  2. Find the file named exactly “image-banner.liquid”
  3. Delete everything in there and paste this code:
{% if section.settings.link != blank %}

<a class="ezfy-custom-link" 
   href="{{ section.settings.link }}"
   {% if section.settings.new_tab %}target="_blank"{% endif %}
   ></a>
<style>
.image-banner-section{
    position: relative;
}
#shopify-section-header{
z-index: 4 !important;
}
.image-banner-section a.ezfy-custom-link{
    position: absolute;
    display: block;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    right: 0;
    bottom: 0;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    z-index: 3;
}
</style>
{% endif %}

hi! thanks for this code! it worked for my image banner, but do you have a fix for the slideshow? right now, it's only clickable if i create/add a shopify button. the "button" that i wanna use is a part of my slide image design.

I did this with the theme "fashe". However, I couldn't find the img or div so I had to put it under a different section. While I made the slideshow clickable, I can't figure out where to link it because it didn't add a "button link" option on the theme. Any suggestions? My shop is "nainaandnoor.com". Thank you!
