Is it possible to make a container in a slideshow as a link?
I have a slideshow I'm working on that shows training events that are coming up. Currently I have a button link that takes the visitor to the full details page of a conference. If it's possible, I would like to have the whole container as the link so a visitor can just click on the container anywhere and be taken to the website.
I've done this with a static div container on my main website, but can't figure out how, or if, it can be done for a container.

Here's a link to see how it works now:

What I want to do is have the whole container with the text in it as a link instead of having the button there - kind of like my current home page:
http://upc.utah.gov/index.php

Is that possible and if so, how to do it?

Thanks,

Ron

After export try wrapping the container in an <a></a>
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Thanks Eric - that works, but it would sure be a lot easier to do if the software had a way to do it, similar to a picture link.
I have 8 slides and will have to edit each slide to add an anchor tag because each of them go to a different place.
I could just put in a button link (why is a text link not available in RCS?) and that works, but it's easier for the user to just click on the container if wrapped in an anchor tag.
Maybe they will do this in a future release.

Thanks
