Hyperlinks in Markers!


I am currently working on an interactive map with markers in it. Within the marker label I have both writing and a picture. I would like to have the picture I insterted (from Marker Tools > Format > Media > Picture From File) be a hyperlink to the corresponding website.

Is there any way that I can do this?

Thank you,

Dominik Lerat

Welcome to the community, Dominik!

I don't believe there's a built-in method for hyper-linking images in marker descriptions, at least not with the same option for text (right-clicking) or with triggers. 

You could, however, create the illusion of the marker with a new layer and then trigger the hyperlink using a hotspot on that layer. I'm not sure if this is an option for you, though, simply because it sounds like you may be using quite a few of these markers in your map and it may be a bit time consuming. 

Just in case this sounds like something you'd be interested in trying, here's a quick example:

Another alternative would be to add text instead, and use that as a hyperlink instead of the image.

Just a thought :) Good luck with the project!
