I'm already guessing that the wysiwyg on v 1.1. RC4 is next to useless for this purpose (though corrections most welcome) and so I'm attempting this using html.
1.) Create image files for the menu - done
2.) Upload image set using the file manager - done
3.) In article - edit front page and add wysiwyg section
4.) Copy location of image file and use it to 'use image' as in wysiwyg menu.
This is where it all goes wrong. Asks me for a password, even with 777 permission on image file, and fails to display it. I attempted the same with a random online image hosted on another site and it worked. I experienced the same difficultis trying again using other images.
Where am I going wrong? I haven't even gotten through to the difficulties of html. ~_~
Any help appreciated.
Hint for whom it may prove useful. By use of a webpage and an image on the wysiwyg screen it becomes easy to turn that image into a link. Just look at how the link html works (yes, by enabling html mode), copy the (/a) to the end, remove the preceeding text that would likely no longer be necessary, and you have a link.
Hope that helps.
