    I would like to have people click on an image in my blog post and going directly to a youtube video. That is, linking an image to a youtube video (or any other content that has a URL, for that matter) – how to? Or is it even possible?

    You can do that by editing the image and inserting a link URL.

    I tried to change the link URL of the picture, but it did not work. Which slot specifically should I copy the youtube link URL to?

    Paste it into the Link URL field.

    Thank you, it worked :) (Sorry if I was a bit stupid, but I was pretty sure I tried just that. Oh well, problem solved.)
