Hey Jordan - I've just gone through the following steps and I haven't been able to reproduce any issues. Can you let me know if I am doing this right?
- Create new formatted text widget and edit the widget
- Click the "Insert image" icon and upload a new image
- Select the entire image
- Click the "Insert Link" icon and enter in a URL (e.g. www.google.com)
- Save the widget
- Publish the overview layout
- Click the image
- Result: Browser is taken to www.google.com
If you're following these exact steps and you still see the issue, would you be able to attach the image you're using here so I can test to see if maybe that is the culprit? I'm also curious to know if you can use the "Manage Files" button to upload an image that way, and then embed the image using that image URL instead. Does that change the behavior?
Thanks for the response David!
I tried those exact steps and was still having this problem. I figured out a way around it though! If I select the image, then press CMD+K (or Ctrl+K for PC) then paste in the URL there, that seemed to stick. After doing this, then publishing, the links worked properly.
Interesting! The link editor popup is a bit of a hidden feature of the rich text editor, so I'm glad you were able to find it and it resolved the issue for you. Hopefully this also works if someone else runs into a similar problem in the future.
Yeah, I just stumbled on the feature. I'm used to using CMD+K in all other apps to drop a link and it worked! easier than clicking the button and using the other dialogue anyway. Whatever is easiest is best in my book.
I insert an image in the formatted text widget. I don't need a link on it. However, I get a link and the a new browser tab will be open and only the image is on it. How can avoid this behavior?

Can you tell me more about the image you are trying to put on the page? Do you have a screenshot? Is it just a banner or something that you would not like to be clickable at all? If this is the case, you might find this comment helpful - Re: Non-clickable Images
I'll look forward to hearing more details about your issue and hopefully we can arrive at a resolution!
Thank you for answering!
I use the formated text widget.
I uploaded an image (first bmp, then jpg).
After publishing the image got the mouseover hand symbol and a link.
That I don't wish, just only an image without any links.
I change the html in
<div style="margin: -28px 0px 0px 0px; pointer-events: none; cursor: default;">
<img src="/resources/statics/1040521/Unbenannt-1.jpg?a=1460100979506" style="width: 100%; height: auto;" /> </div>
Now: I don't have the mouseover hand symbol and a link, however after clicking on the image the colour ist changing.

Thanky you so much in advance! !
Thanks for your screencast video. That really helped. Posting html code snippets can be very helpful as well.
From your html below, it looks like you have two images at the top. i would suggest trying to remove everything in blue, below (you don't need "margin: -28px 0px 0px 0px;")
if you get rid of all of that blue you'll be left with give that a try
<body> <div style="pointer-events: none; cursor: default;"> <img src="ENTER_IMAGE_URL_HERE" style="width: 100%; height: auto;" /> </div> <p></p> ...
You can replace that "ENTER_IMAGE_URL_HERE" with any image url. So you should be able to use that simple code above to have a banner that is not clickable ;-)
In this example you'd replace "ENTER_IMAGE_URL_HERE" with... /resources/statics/1040521/Unbenannt-1.jpg?a=1460100979506
I hope this helps!!
