Web part that contains a clickable image RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Is there a web part available that can contain an image that has a URL attached to it (<a href=""><img src=""></a>) so that the image can be displayed and when a user clicks on the image, a web page is displayed to the user?

  • Hi Paul,

    You can use the "content editor web part".  Add the content editor web part to your page.  Modify the web part and click the "rich text editor".  Add your image.  Once your image is added, click the hyperlink icon at the top of the rich text editor and enter your url.

  • Hi Paul,

    You can use the Content Editor Web Part just as Melissa said. But there may be something about permission should be focused on. For example, the user who has no permission to the image cannot see the image or just find it display as a blank image with a red cross on it. And here is a link may help this:

  • Hi Melissa, Emir

    Thanks for the responses, however, when I go to 'create' a web part, the only options I see are the below. Is there some other place where I can find the 'content editor web part' on Sharepoint? It is referenced in their 'help file', but it does not say where to find it in SP.

  • Hi Paul,

    It looks like you went to Site Actions > Create.  You want to go to Site Actions > Edit Page.  Then you should see yellow bar(s) across the page that say something along the lines of "Click to add a web part".

  • Hi Melissa

    When I go into Site Actions > Edit Page, I can add a web part, but the only options I see are the web parts I have already created and there is one under 'misc' that states something like 'change my password'. But no option for 'content editor web part'. I have SP 2007, but it is hosted by another organization. So would my options be limited?

    Is there a way to create a web part in Word 2007 that would do the same thing and import it? There is an option to import a web part. But I would rather do this directly in SP if possible though.

  • Hi Paul,

    It sounds like you don't have permissions to the content editor web part.  The hosting organization probably doesn't even realize it. 

    Since you can import - I can email the content editor webpart to you.  I'm going to post my email in a new comment, but delete it from this post.  I'm hoping you have your email alerts on so you will have my email in your alert.  Email me and I will send it to you.

  • Hi Melissa

    I did not have my email configured, but I just entered it now, so I did not see the new comment. By any chance, could you please post it again?

  • Does anyone have a content editor webpart that could be sent?

  • Do you have access to site settings? If yes did you check the Web Part Gallery?

    Also you can use SharePoint Designer if you have permissions to use it.

  • For other's reference:

    I had emailed Paul-NYS the content editor webpart (I exported it from the webpart gallery on one of my SharePoint sites).  The exported file is a .dwp.  Paul uploaded the .dwp file to his webpart gallery and was able to use it as expected.

  • Hi Melissa, how are you?

    I have a probleme almost similar with Paul's.

    I have a clickable image with a HTML source code attached to it(a webpage with an original image were provided). Ita a structure of the company that links are linked different pages.

    I would like to integrate that on my sharepoint. I don't know to integrate that with the tree pieces provided (HTML Code, Image and Webpage).

    I would like to know if this is possible and if you can help me on that. How do I go about that?

    You answers and help is highly appreciated

  • Hi Juni,

    Is the webpage actually a physical page that was given to you?  Or is it something that is already accessible on a website?

  • Hi Melissa

    Wow, that was fast. Thanks for your quick reply.

    The webpage is actually a physical page that was given to me. Its not hosted. I was given a folder with a picture and html page in it. 

    Thanks

  • Hi Juni,

    No problem.  Ok, now that I'm clear on that I can provide you with directions.  You'll need to upload that webpage into a document library on the SharePoint site to make it accessible.  Users will need read permissions to it.  This doc library should preferably be on the same site that the webpart will be on.

    Go to the page you want to add the webpart with the clickable image on it.  Site Actions > Edit page > Add web part.  Choose the content editor webpart.  Edit the webpart using the Rich Text Editor.   You can paste your image here.  Then select the image and click the hyperlink tool in the toolbar.  Enter the url to where you uploaded the webpage.

    That should do it.

  • Hi Melissa,

    Thanks for you help.

    How do I upload this page though? Do I use a FTP_CLIENT software or I can upload it just as I do for normal document by using the feature NEW DOCUMENT or how.

    Is there a way I can send you what I have and you can actually a look on it and see how it works. I can make a zip folser and it to you.

    Thanks

    Juni
