Hello everyone,

 I am new to guildportal and am wondering if someone could help me out. I have a simple question about the info widget. I want to add a link to an external website and put it in the info widget so when people click on the link in the widget they are taken to the website in a new window.

I have got this to work now but it is not how I want it yet. For now when someone clicks on the tab in the widget it opens another window which has the link anchored in it. Is there a way to put the link directly in the widget? without the need to open a box to then click on the link?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Ice Warden!

You can just use a "Free Form Text/HTML" type widget that allows you to enter whatever you want. The info panel was designed to make the popup windows. You could also use this generic information accordion script to add and keep organized a lot of links.

Thank you so much it is working great now. I have one other quick question. Is there a way I can make the content boxes/widgets transparent so that people can see through them to the background image I have?
