Making a clickable image editible - both the image src and link URL

This is my first foray into creating a template, and I'm flying blind because the "Editor" page that explains how all the tags work doesn't work for me, and I don't know where to go for a list of all the edit tags.

I have an image that I want users to click on to go to a page.

I want the image to be editable.

I want the destination of the link to be editable.

Can anyone let me know how to accomplish this?

If I can get access to the set of tags before I get a response, I hope I can figure it out and I'll post back here.

Campaign Monitor code is really simple to use.  They've got a reference here on how to make content editable.

Thanks, Step. Unfortunately something about the pages that they've set up to explain the use of the editor tools do not work on the browser I have to use here at work (IE9). I can't view the page that you linked to.

Is there any way to get access to the information without visiting that page?

To clarify: I want to make both the link URL and image source path editible below:

<a href="EDITABLE"><img src="EDITABLE" /></a>

Hi tjbiv, sorry to hear you can't view our pages, that's really strange! So you can get on the road, here's the code you need to make an image editable in our editor:

<img editable src="image.jpg" width="200" label='Hero Image' />

Note that the 'editable' defines the image as being well, editable. Width is mandatory, but src and label are not.

You don't need to add <a> tags around the image, as links for editable images are defined in the email editor. If you continue having trouble viewing our template docs, be sure to let us know - they're well worth a read!
