Sometimes it can be useful to make a whole content block – and not just a link or a button inside it – clickable, to make it easier for your visitors to get to where you want them to be. Our system now allows you to do that, without any coding. For instance the big header in our public website now uses this feature. When you move the mouse anywhere over the Home page header, it will subtly brighten up, and when clicked will take you to another page:
Clicking anywhere on that block takes you to a different URL
How to do that
The Advanced options panel of every content block now includes an Entire block link option. Paste the URL you want there and YWD will take of the rest.
- If linking to a page of your website make sure you use the live URL of the page i.e. from your actual domain name, and NOT the URL of the page from the back-end preview i.e http://admin.yourwebdepartment.com/ etc.
- Use the full URL, including the prefix e.g. https://.
- Currently, the page will open in the same browser window, not in a separate tab.
