The Image URL alone will not link back to the credential view page. To enable viewers to click on your embedded credential to view more information about your achievement you will need to add the credential link.

  2. Copy the URL in the browser search bar.
  3. Navigate back to the webpage editor that you are using to embed the credential.
  4. Paste the URL you just copied into the 'Link to' option of your embedded badge and save.
  5. Your newly embedded badge will now direct anyone who clicks on it to your credential view in order to see more details regarding your achievement.
