How do I remove the blue line around a linked image?

There are two ways to remove blue "linked image" borders:

  • At the Image-Level
  • System-Wide

Note: Keep in mind, blue lines are automatically inserted to let people know that clicking an image will take them somewhere else, so you might want to find another way to let your users know!

Image Level

  • Insert your image as you normally would
  • In the Image Manager screen, enter "0" in the "Border" field
  • Click "Insert" - that's it!


Add the following code to your Custom Head section (Admin Stuff > Look & Feel):


a img {border:none; }

  1. For those that don't like mucking in HTML code, you can also just put '0' in the 'border' attribute when inserting the image (either before or after adding the link).

  2. Good call, thanks Wade!

  3. For those that want to remove the blue border on ALL images across your site, add this to your "Custom Code":

    img {border-style: none;}
