Usage: {{Click | image=myimage.png | link=PageName | width=10px | height=10px}}

This template attempts to superimpose an invisible link on an image, such that clicking on the image does not take you to the image description page (normal behaviour).

It's useful for small icons/logos which are representative of an article, and which a user might click on expecting to be taken to that article. Here we are using it on the Main Page for example. It's use should minimised because of the following problems.

Problems

It doesn't work in text-only browsers, and in screen readers for the disabled, and possibly other situations. The technique of using CSS to change page content also completely breaks an article's web accessibility by contravening a WAI priority-one checkpoint.[1]

Extension:ImageMap can achieve the same effect and much more.
