Welcome to GuildPortal!

The Devs haven't given us a sticky for codes, but Ciannon compiled a list of a few handy codes that some of the brilliant members here have posted. 
Ciannon's List

If you are brand new, you may want to go ahead and download the Administrator's Guide (Found when you enter your Control Pane at the top of your site) and the Customization Guide (found on the 'Style and Colors' page of your Control Panel).  These will give you a good understanding of how GP works and how to manage your site.

As far as making images, GP doesn't do that for you.  You can create images yourself in Photoshop or Paint, or you can search the internet and download images that you like.

A lot of your success will just depend on trial and error.  Keep experimenting in your Control Panel, try new things and you'll learn as you go.

Ahh, ok. 

To make an image linkable you have to first place it in your content using the Image Path Inserter button in the upper right of your editor.

Click this button and enter the url where your image is located.


Once the image appears inside your content, select the image by clicking on it:

Then go to the upper right and click on the Hyperlink Manager:

A box will come up where you can enter the website you want the pic to link to.
Now your pic is linked.

Haha 
Leave the easy stuff to me, you conserve your energy for the brilliant stuff.    (Oh, and thx about the sig.  Wish it weren't grainy, but I'll have to learn Flash to fix that.)


Good luck on the site, flintcake.  Post here any time and show us your progress.  Hopefully we can help eachother out.

Trying clicking on the HTML mode button () at the bottom of the editor, just above the Save button.

You should end up seeing something like this:
<a href="URL#1"><img src="URL to pic1"></a><a href="URL#2"><img src="URL to pic2"></a>
If you gave us a link to your site, it would be easier to see where you're having a problem. I hope this helps!
