Is it possible to add a hyperlink to an image in rise?
That's a great question! Have you looked at adding an image and including a hyperlink within the accompanying text - such as an image as a part of a Process Interaction? My colleague Ashley recorded a quick video of this in Peek for how to set this up within the Process interaction. I hope this is helpful!
I think it would be useful if you could give images in a gallery a hyperlink to another part of the module. ie a launch page. and not a link on the text under an image, an actual link on the image itself.
Cool idea Peter - and definitely worth sharing with our team as a Feature idea! So just to confirm, you'd be looking for an option to add a hyperlink to an image in your course that jumps to another part of the course, or even outside of the Rise course? The user wouldn't see the hyperlink text either way? Just want to make sure I capture your thoughts clearly and you can also share them directly with our Product team by sending along here.
I would also use this feature for the social media option I mentioned a number of weeks back. Having a hyperlink image would allow me to insert a "tweet this" image that would open up twitter in a new window.
Cool idea Cindy, and good to know. I'll pass it along to the team and you can always send your thoughts here in a feature request as well.
It seems that an image associated with a link would be a valuable asset. The user clicks the image and is brought to the page from which the image originated...
Check out how Dreamweaver does image maps. That's the solution and what I'm looking for. Not sure if I'll be able to do something like this but will keep working. My use is to have an image of a table (built in Excel and taken as a screen shot). Then, each column header in the table has an image map that opens a hyperlink (specifically in my case a link to a PDF related to that column). And the "Markers" do not work because they cover the column headers, making them unreadable. The image map is invisible until the user mouses over the title and then it changes to the pointer to click.
Has this feature been added to rise?
Indeed, this would be an excellent feature. Ran into this post while researching how to embed a deep link to videos hosted in our LMS (we need to track completion). Obviously, we could use a text link but a picture (thumbnail) is more visually appealing. I tried to Multimedia embed option using iframe but that didn't work very well :(
Thank you for your feedback!
Our team has logged this feature request - I don’t currently have any updates, but you are now subscribed to this conversation which means as we share updates here, you’ll automatically be notified.
Looking for this feature, as well.
Thanks for your sharing your +1 Jay! If we add this to our new feature roadmap in the future, we'll definitely let you know.
I was recently looking at this, it won't work with navigating to pages within Rise but I think it could possibly work for navigating to another site, have not tested in Rise yet.
If an image had a hyperlink feature this may allow us to get over the issue that Interactive simulation can't be inserted and work directly with RISE. I could hyperlink to a web server and call the simulation into the course. I currently use Active presenter as the Simulation tool and this works well with Storyline and can embed via web object but not currently in RISE.
I have used the 'Add a caption' (under the image settings) and placed the hyperlink in there. I normally just use the work 'Link' and hyperlink it. I see that Rise uses the click on the actual image to show a 'zoomed' larger version of the image (which you can also disable under the image settings) so this feature would need to be dropped if you were to hyperlink the actual image.
Hi there, Shane. So I can understand your need, I wanted to confirm whether adding the web content using a Multimedia embed block with an iframe code doesn't work for your course. Is that accurate?
We were able to use a hotspot over an image in Storyline that links to a website displaying a 3D web-object. Of course you would have to insert the published Storyline slide into Rise. It looks better using a chromeless Storyline player.
Please add me to the updates on this functionality - something I'd be very keen to see!
YOu could use markers and it will take you to the link
+1 on this functionnality
I'd love to see this feature as well!
Hi Articulate, this is a pretty basic request offered in many competitive solutions like Evolve etc. I have been introducing hyperlinks on images in HTML webdesign courses 20 yrs ago. Despite all the work arounds proposed, like Storyline blocks, where are we with this?
Here's why customer feedback matters: https://medium.com/innovation-and-agility/customer-feedback-is-the-only-one-that-matters-a7e5d424a8a6
Thanks for letting us know how important this feature is to you. We always appreciate customer feedback, and we've made lots of enhancements in Rise 360 because of it! I don't have an update on an image hyperlink feature yet, but we'll let you know if that changes.
I've been exploring adding hyperlinks inside an SVG to try and at least gain the ability to link to external sources via clicking an image in Rise. Unfortunately, as soon as I add the code to the SVG file to handle the hyperlink, Rise doesn't recognise the image.
My solution works if I open the image up directly in to a browser, just not when inserted in to Rise. Click here to open the SVG, then click the image to see the link working.
If anyone has any advice to help get this working in Rise I'd be very grateful!
Another +1 to the need for this. In our LMS, we link to the next course in the series and would prefer to link an image rather than some text.
