Html – Hyperlinking an image using CSS


I know this is probably the dumbest question ever, however I am a total beginner when it comes to CSS; how do you hyperlink an image on a webpage using an image which is sourced from CSS? I am trying to set the title image on my website linkable to the frontpage. Thanks!

Edit: Just to make it clear, I'm sourcing my image from CSS, the CSS code for the header div is as follows:-

    width: 1000px;
    margin: 0px auto;
    padding: 0px 15px 0px 15px;
    border: none;
    background: url(images/title.png) no-repeat bottom;
    width: 1000px;
    height: 100px;

I want to know how to make this div hyperlinked on my webpage without having to make it an anchor rather than a div.

Best Solution

You control design and styles with CSS, not the behavior of your content.

You're going to have to use something like <a id="header" href="[your link]">Logo</a> and then have a CSS block such as:

a#header {
  background-image: url(...);
  display: block;
  width: ..;
  height: ...;

You cannot nest a div inside <a> and still have 'valid' code. <a> is an inline element that cannot legally contain a block element. The only non-Javascript way to make a link is with the <a> element.

You can nest your <a> tag inside <div> and then put your image inside :)

If you don't want that, you're going to have to use JavaScript to make your <div> clickable:

Document.getElementById("header").onclick = function() {
