I believe a much needed improvement to the media boxes would be a field where you can enter a website link for an uploaded media box image. There is an html field, but having to wrap a link around img src code is a waste of time. I use the media box for logos in the header and having a hyperlink field for an uploaded image for the media box is essential.

Hi,

 

I don't personally agree if I'm honest, the MediaBox already contains a Text and HTML area, where you can use basic HTML to create an image link.

 

For example:

 

<a href="Add your Link here" target="_blank"><img src="URL for Imag here"></a>

To be honest that's a cop-out. I already know that you can link images that way. It would save people time to be able to simply paste in a hyperlink in a field if you need to link the image to an external image. Is it too much to ask to improve the site's functionality?
