Slider Image Link Button – Make Entire Image

  • Creator

    I would like to make the image become a link rather than just the button on the top left corner. Is there a way to do this?

    This will be a customization you’ll need to make to the theme, but can be pretty easily accomplished with style modifications. I’ll share a CSS snippet that’s been floating around that should help since I get this question quite often.

    .element-slider .slide .image-link,
    .element-slider .slide .image-link:hover {
        background-color: #fff; /* Triggers the anchor in IE */
        background-image: none;
        top: 0;
        left: 0;
        width: 100%;
        height: 100%;
        filter: alpha(opacity=0);
        -moz-opacity: 0;
        -khtml-opacity: 0;
        opacity: 0;

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
