Make strip column linkable

Hello everyone,

I’m new to Velo by Wix and would love to make a column in a strip linkable. I have been desperately trying to get support from Wix in the last few days but they keep saying they can’t help and that someone from the Velo support team will reach out at some point…

I found the following thread from years ago which seems to be relevant to my query, however, I tried to add the codes and it didn’t work:

Really appreciate your help.

Thank you very much,

This format worked for me after some trial and error.

This how is should look like in the code panel:

// API Reference: Introduction - Velo API Reference -
// “Hello, World!” Example: Velo Learning Center

$w . onReady ( function () {
// Write your JavaScript here

// To select an element by ID use: $w('#elementID') 

// Click 'Preview' to run your code 



  • Adds an event handler that runs when the element is clicked.

  • @param {$w.MouseEvent} event

import wixLocation from “wix-location” ;

export function column6_click ( event ) {
wixLocation . to ( “INSERTEXTERNALLINKHERE” ,)
// This function was added from the Properties & Events panel. To learn more, visit Velo: Working with the Properties & Events Panel | Help Center |
// Add your code for this event here:

Thank you, I really appreciate it. I just tried and unfortunately it didn’t work. When I publish the website, the mouse cursor icon changes to the ‘hand’ over the column but when I click on it nothing happens.

I’m really struggling to understand what I’m doing wrong. I’ve literally been following all your passages…

the correct format is [wixLocation](“/local) [.](”/local) [to](“/local) [(](”/local) [“/local](”/local) -page-name " ); or [wixLocation](“/local) [.](”/local) [to](“/local) [(](”/local) [“h](”/local) ttps://www… " ); for external URL. Here’s the Wix API documentation to - Velo API Reference -
