How can I use a photo as a hyperlink? Adding a source URL when editing just places the link under the image. I would like to be able to jump to an address by clicking on an image.
Oh how I wish that feature would be available but as far as I know it is not. You'll have to use the source/hyperlink. I'm going to follow this thread to see if anything changes. Best wishes to you.
It's unlikely that feature will ever be allowed.
If it were allowed, people would be able to post their own advertising banners on HubPages, and that would compete too much with HP's own advertising system.
Why do you need this feature?
I'm afraid you are right Marisa, it would probably be abused by some community members (imo)
Personally, I would like it as a link to a related hub. No biggie.
Basically to direct users to related hubs or my profile
You are not allowed to include a link to your profile in a Hub.
Really? Never tried that, but don't know why it wouldn't be allowed. It's like linking to your own hubs. Guess I'm missing something here.
According to the TOS, you cannot use spam to direct visitors to hubs or your profile. As I understood it, this meant links cannot be added to answers, comments on hubs etc. Are promotional links on your own hubs considered "spam"? I wouldn't have thought so.
Outgoing links from your hub must be to something relevant to the subject of the hub. Unless you have a hub talking about you, your profile would not be pertinent.
Links can be added to answers so long as they are relevant to the question that was asked. This is done all the time and is perfectly okay, even to the degree you have the option when answering a question to 'make a hub about it' which will result in the link to your new hub appearing in your answer. If you already have a hub on the subject being asked about you can add the link to your answer, and this is equally okay.

Some hubs are long and, as result, takes a long time to scroll the page back up to the top. I would like to suggest adding a back to the top link to each page so that you just click on the link and it takes you back up to the top of the page without having to waste so much time manually scolling...

Currently, we are allowed 2 text links within a hub for links to our website, blogs, or articles written elsewhere.But, if you don't join the HP Amazon program, do you know that those 2 Amazon text links are not extra ones? If you use 2 amazon links, then you have used up your quota of 2 personal...

I like the new improved look of the stolen hubs link. Thanks, HubPages.I just wish it were more helpful sometimes! It can be so difficult to file a DMCA. It can take so much effort to track down the thieves, Sigh!

I was just thinking, it might be cool to have a point/counterpoint feature in which on author might provide a counterpoint to a hub already written. If they were both good, perhaps they could somehow be featured in a juxtaposed format, so readers could objectively get both sides of an issue,...
