I keep getting an error that says I need to backlink the image to this page? It won’t let me submit and I’ve tried everything I can think of :(

I don’t know how to create a back link. Can someone give me more information on how to do this? Or would it be possible to post it here how it is done?

This is the second contest I have tried to enter but I don’t know what a back link is, why it is needed, or other useful information.

Any help you would provide would be very much apprciated!

PS…I wrote for help last time too and got no response.

Hi I’m trying to create the submission post, but I’m not sure how to include the button? I created a link on the post, but when I click on your button link it only shows an image of the button…
