Hyperlinks stopped working on images

A problem with images on the Wordpress part of my website...
basically the hyperlinks have stopped working on the images..
the images try to open and don't redirect to the custom url...
ie.. a 'buy button' tries to open an image...
any suggestions?

If you create pages and posts using the Visual interface, take a look at the final code using the Text interface. In Text mode you can see what the image URLs are linked to and fix that - but it sounds like some setting in a plugin is altering them so it may revert back to the settings even if you manually edit the page/post in Text mode. Looking at the code can tell you what is different in the hyperlinks and that may point you to the setting you need to adjust.

Hyperlink stopped working because the people donot copy the exact url or people donot use the exact source where the hyperlink is linked.
