    Yes: WebMerge merely copies data from your feed into areas in your template specified with WebMerge tag, so just about anything that can be done with straight HTML can be done with WebMerge.

    In HTML, a graphic link looks something like this:

    <a href="http://www.fourthworld.com"><img src="buynow.gif"></a>

    If your feed has a special URL for purchasing you can just replace the URL with the WM-Field tag:

    <a href="[WM-Field: UrlField raw nolink]"><img src="buynow.gif"></a>

    See the WebMerge Help page on the WM-Field tag for details in the "raw" and "nolink" options.

    Or, if you just want a button that looks like the ones in forms - you could always just use the standard form button like this:

    <button>your text here</button>

    <a href="http://www.fourthworld.com"><img src="buynow.gif"></a>

    <button>Check Out </button> does not tell where the image address is.

    You need to find an image that you want to use and save it to your website.

    It needs to look like this in your template <a href="[WM-Field: UrlField raw]"><img src="buynow.gif"></a>

    Your template would look like this <a href="[WM-Field: UrlField raw]"><img src="address of your image that you are using.gif"></a>

    Does this help ??

    The nolink needs to be removed for it to be a clickable link. The nolink tell webmerger to not make it a link and that means that it will not work as a clickable link.

    It should be <a href="[WM-Field: UrlField raw]"><img src="buynow.gif"></a>

    Using html <button> code will screw up your links in a bad way. It adds a "?" to the end of the destination URL. Fine for hard direct links, but with most affiliate-type URL's the click will rarely make it to the destination site, let alone track any resulting sale.
