Make pictures in Slideshow gadget clickable - add text and links to them
The current slideshow widget only allows rotating images. This is fine for many purposes but for the purpose of a home page content slider having the ability to add text and links to each slide would greatly improve this widget. I'm sure almost every Wild Apricot user could benefit from this.
Please Vote for this!!
We are happy to announce that this feature is released. Please check it out.
Now you can associate pictures in slideshow with links through slideshow gadget settings. You can link pictures to custom links, site pages or events.
We hope you’ll like it. If you have any followups or ideas please do not forget to leave them on this forum in a new topic.

I am using Wild Apricot's slideshow gadget. The photo won't display. It keeps spining from photo1, photo2 ..... last photo.
Even though my photo is a very small size 95K. Something wrong with this slideshow gadget.

I found this on the help pages that show you how to make the images in a slideshow clickable. Just tested it out and seems pretty easy to add.

Please, developers, please. Add clickability to the slideshow or help us implement a better solution.

There is overwlming support for this; should be fast tracked

Please! I use the slider for selling ad space and I currently can't charge that much for it because it doesn't link to the advertiser's website.

Couldn't agree more on the need for the ability to add links. As someone mentioned we use to display sponsors.
Dale Koetke commented
I use this gadget to highlight our sponsors. It would be great if I could associate a link that depends on which photo is showing.
Hi. Agree. Are there any work arounds? I really need this today.!
