Hi Lucia

The default icon and link look like
[link][icon][/link] in a format statement.
To change what the icon links to, you can use something like:

<a href='link address'>[icon]</a>

If the link address comes from metadata, eg URL, you can do the following
<a href='[URL]'>[icon]</a>

If this is not whatyou are after, there are a few resources that might help:

A summary of all formatting features and commands:

Some example collections which have documentation about their configuration:

Section 2.3 of the developers guide.

Fiji workshop, greenstone tutorials, downloadable from

Hope these help.
