Editable image with consistent link

Hi,

Im creating a template for my clients.   I want to create some areas where they can switch out an image but there will be a consistent link that will go to the same place.

I tried to do achieve this with the following code:

<a href= " consistent link URL here" >                   

<img editable="true" label="Main Edition Picture" src="main-pic.jpg" alt="LATEST EDITION"  width="414" />

</a>

But it has not been working properly.   If I leave my default image in place the link works.   But if I switch out the image the link is not functional.   I am not sure why this is happening.   Does anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks!
Emily

Hi Emily, thanks for pointing this out. At present, it isn't possible to keep the link in place when replacing a default image, I'm sorry to say. Admittedly copying the link before replacing the image can be a bit error-prone, so I'll happily take note of this internally and let you know if it's something we change in the future.

Sorry again about this - we really appreciate the feedback here!

Try:

<a href= " consistent link URL here" >                   
<strong>
<img editable="true" label="Main Edition Picture" src="main-pic.jpg" alt="LATEST EDITION"  width="414" />
</strong>
</a>

The <strong> tags keep the editor from removing your link, and allow the user to add a different link if they want.
