How do I turn my logo into a 'clickable' link

    Hi guys,

    I'm sure this is really easy to do (hopefully), but let me explain what I'm after. I have my own personal custom e-mail address and I have my jpeg logo as my signature, so whenever I send an email, my signature automatically appears at the bottom after my message. How do I now turn my logo (signature) into a link that my recipients can click to go to my site?

    I know I can easily just put a link under my logo, but I would like my logo to be the link :icon_smile:

    I appreciate any help you guys can offer.

    And what email client are you using?

    As long as your email client allows HTML signatures, something like this:

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

    This should work just fine. It's worth including a text link too, since not everyone loads images in emails by default, and even if they do, it may not be obvious that the image is a hyperlink.

    Thank you! I'll give this a go. I'm pretty sure it does allow HTML signatures.

    Ok lads, I tried the above code and got this: " target="_blank">

    I have very limited knowledge when is comes to coding but by reading this code (<a href=""><img src=""></a>) am I correct in thinking it is trying to use the logo on my website, as my signature in my email? If so, the logo on my site will be too big for a signature.

    Either way it didn't work, i'm sure it's just me. Nevermind, it is more hassle than it's worth. I'll just put a link under my logo. Thanks for your help anyway guys.

    Tryt this:

    <a href="" target="_blank"><img src=""></a>

    ( I assume you realised you have to replace with your actual website )

    And, you need to create an appropriately sized logo that will look good in the signature and upload it to an appropriate place on your website ( eg: )

    lol yes I do realise I have to replace with my actual website haha. I'll try your new code but "creating an appropriately sized logo that will look good in the signature and upload it to an appropriate place on your website" sounds like the key!

    Thank you again, i'll give it ago.

    DOH! Mayor error by me guys i'm sorry. I actually solved my own problem this morning but I hadn't realised it had actually worked! I was in a rush to get to work so I didn't test it properly, I assumed it didn't work. {Insert embarrased smiley here.}

    Yeah I didn't need any kind of code or anything. I simply clicked on my logo, then clicked on 'Insert hyperlink,' then I typed in my web address and that was it. It did work afterall! :icon_smile: I'm pleased about that.

    Thanks again for your help and sorry for wasting your time.

    Thank you.
