I have images that I want to press and go to another page to find more relative images. How do i do that?

I am making a webpage and I have pictures on my main page and when the person presses on the image I want the computer to take the person to another page to view more images like the one in the main page. I tried using the same thing as when I was taught how to make the about.html page and the contact.html page but it does not work. I need help ASAP. thank you.

Hi Steve,

Can you post your code so we can take a look please?

You need to wrap an anchor link around the image you want the user to click.

Something like this

<a href="pageyouwanttolinkto.html"><img src="imageyouwanttoclick.png" /></a>

I did that but then I pressed on it and I did what the teacher did with the contact.html put it on class="selected" but it just didn't come out with the header or anything. I did another file for the picture to make it another page but it just doe not work

Matthews answer is correct. Just make sure you have another file with the name pageyouwanttolinkto.html in the same folder as your index.html. Remember that this is case sensitive. So make sure your capitalization is the same between the href and the actual file.

<a href="pageyouwanttolinkto.html"><img src="imageyouwanttoclick.png" /></a>

If that does not fix it, I don't think you get around posting your code and file structure here.
