How do I link thumbnail pictures on my site to the actual full html page? Obviously I'm a newbie

Hi pbarbers,

Let's say you have a thumb called Thumb1.gif and an HTML page that shows the full image, called ShowImage1.html, then you can link to the image like this:

<a href="ShowImage1.html"><img src="Images/Thumb1.gif" /></a>

So, basically, you wrap the image in an <a> tag. The src attribute of the image points to an image in the Images folder (just an example) and the href attribute of the <a> tag points to the full page.

You can use Dreamweaver to create this code for you. Select the image, and then browse for another page in the Link box on the Properties panel for the image.

Hope this helps,
