Hello Experts,

I bought a jquery gallery template which uses xml to add the images.  There are default nodes it came with, the xml looks like that attached code.

They are using jquery to put it all together.  If you need more infomration just ask.  I want to know how to add a <a> tag into the <description> tag.

So something like <description>  <a href="www.awesomewebsite.com">Here</a> is an awesome website I designed </description>

I don't code things....so im at your mercy!!!  Please help!

You will probably need to upload the jQuery gallery code, and possibly the gallery page. A link to the live page might be a better option.

Hi there!  Thanks so much for checking out my questions.


Here is a link to the website

http://www.k-mac.ca/kport/

I think you will have access to the files you need there but I've also attached the xml and js files.

Any light you can shed is greatly appreciated.

jquery.colorbox-min.js
portfolio-setter.js
portfolio.xml

have you tired giving like this in your xml?

<description>
<a href="www.awesomewebsite.com">Here</a> is an awesome website I designed </description>

I just went through the js and since it uses color box I just tried giving a link in the title and worked fine in a colorbox example.

So the same should work for you as well. Just give that and check, I will have a look later on.

Best,
kadaba
