How to embed a hyperlink into image in SAP Blogs?


Hi all!

Not sure if this is even possible, but a colleague and I are trying to embed a hyperlink into an image on SAP Blogs.

Why are we trying to do this? We have a video on Consensus, where we want to link to from our blog, but Consensus videos cannot be embedded to a blog on SAP Blogs, so we are looking for another "clean" way of doing this.

We tried to add the classical HTML tag in the text editor (as it is accepting HTML tags), where we put the image tag into the tag of the hyperlink, as stated below:

<a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">
	<img src="" />

However, when we save our blog, check the draft, and try to open the hyperlink (by clicking on the image), a new tab opens, but it says "blocked" in the address bar.

We tried different ways, but got nothing working so far, I'm wondering if anyone has any idea on how to make this work.

Looking forward to your responses!

Thanks in advance,
