Hi.  I have a Joomla site and have added the following code to the main index.php file to add the social networking buttons to it, however not being familiar with PHP, I don't know how to make those images clickable and add the URLs.  Also need to make sure the URL target is blank so that people don't leave the website and a new web page is opened.  Any help would be great.
Thanks!
<div class="social"><p>Follow Us</p><img src="<?php echo $this->baseurl ?>/templates/<?php echo $this->template;?>/images/twitter.png" border="0" alt="<?php echo JText::_('Twitter'); ?>" width="15" height="19" /><img src="<?php echo $this->baseurl ?>/templates/<?php echo $this->template;?>/images/facebook.png" border="0" alt="<?php echo JText::_('Facebook'); ?>" width="22" height="22" /></div>

Hi,
Just try to put it in a link like this:

 
<div class="social">
	<p>Follow Us</p>
	<a href="http://twitter.com/"><img src="<?php echo $this->baseurl ?>/templates/<?php echo $this->template;?>/images/twitter.png" border="0" alt="<?php echo JText::_('Twitter'); ?>" width="15" height="19" /></a> 
	<a href="http://www.facebook.com/"><img src="<?php echo $this->baseurl ?>/templates/<?php echo $this->template;?>/images/facebook.png" border="0" alt="<?php echo JText::_('Facebook'); ?>" width="22" height="22" /></a>
</div>

Just follow the tutorial on how to create a link:
