I'm trying to do almost the same thing, but it didn't quite work for me. 


I have a header. In the header I have one media box and nothing else.


In the media box I have one image and nothing else. I want this image linked to the site home page, to open in the same tab.


When I put into the Text and Embed HTML box:


   <a href="[pl_site_url]"><img src="[pl_site_url]/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/header_1280x601.png" /></a>


...the page reloads with two images. One of them is a link, the other not. The link does bring up the intended page.


It doesn't seem to matter if I use the literal string "[pl_site_url]" or the actual URL to which it refers.


thx for advice.

I have just this moment added your code with one minor change to the image path and the code works without any issue. I do not get a double image of any kind.

If this is still occurring, can you view your code in Chrome Dev Tools or provide a link to the site in question with the error active so we can see for ourselves.

Please search our forums, before posting!

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!

      Please refer to cassclayton.com/dev
      Need to place the 2 media boxes (that contain the ragged dark background for Playlist of month and Song suggestion) right under the content above that. Have a basic 2-column format for the page with sidebar widgets in narrow column to right and main content in large area left column. When I try to drag another 2-col section just under the other content, instead of what I want, a new canvas section (?) is formed into which the new 2-col is placed and this gets placed AFTER all that stuff in the narrow right column!
      How does one create a format where you can have multiple columns inside a column?
      I can perhaps do this manually with DIVs and float: left CSS, but that will make it very clumbsy for client then to update that content.
      Appreciate your insights, thanks
      Oh, also I have to drag out a 2-col twice before one of them stays on refresh (see post from the other day "2-colums inside other column - disappears on refresh? CSS not saving on refresh" - still waiting for reply on that.)
