Insert a URL in the header to link to the homepage


I would like to have a link in the header region so that users can just click on the region to go back to the homepage but I can't find any option to do that. Is that even possible?

    Hi Marine,

    Thanks for asking. I just checked with Upfront Builder but it seems like there is no native way of adding link to the whole region.

    If your header region design is not too complex, you can drag and drop Custom Code element and write custom HTML code to generate the same design, but this time, it will be linkable. For example, you can use the following code:

    <a href="">
    <img src="" / style="width: 100%">

    This will make that image full width of that region content grid and when anyone click on that image, he will be taken to the link. But I'm afraid, this will be hard for creating complex design.

    However, this sounds to be a nice idea to make the entire region linked. So I'm moving your thread to our Features and Feedback section. More people liking this idea, more chances our developers will work on this and will include this feature in our future releases.

    But if you meant that if it's possible to link any specific element of the header region, then I think it's posible for images. If you have any image in your global header region, then click on that element, and you will get option to add link to that logo/image. Please check the attached screenshot for reference.

    By clicking that link icon, you can add link of your homepage. After doing this, your users will be able to click on that logo to go to the homepage of your site.

    Please let us know if I missed any point or if you have any confusion. We will be glad to help further.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!

    Hi Rupok,

    Thanks for your answer. You got my question right. I know I can insert link on images but in the header, the image is in the background and I guess that is why I don't have the option to insert a URL. I am going to try to insert custom HTML instead, see how it goes.

    Hi Marine,

    I have a button and the site search in the header as well, I guess they would be overwritten by the full-width image anyway, right?

    You can put your button and the site search above that image by adding z-index custom CSS property. To know more about "z-index" property, you can check this article:

    However, I've asked our developers for any other possible workaround. I'll update you as soon as I get something from them. Please keep in mind, our developers work round the clock and they have to deal with lots of critical issues and other things. So it may take a little while for them to check this and provide a feedback.

    I appreciate your patience.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
