Gallery Custom Links

    I think it would really enhance the gallery feature if custom links were available for photos within a gallery. Many forum posts have also discussed this option. Is there any way to integrate this plugin into the gallery feature?

    The blog I need help with is tombradyfurniture.wordpress.com.

  2. We can't install plugins here on WordPress.com.

    Hope you don't mind, I've added your post to my forum thread here:

    Thank you so much for the prompt response. Being that plugins cannot be enabled, can you suggest another way to accomplish this? I am just looking for a way to link to other pages within the same site. Any suggestions would be helpful!

    I've posted 2 workarounds on my Gallery demo site, but that is just what they are, workarounds. You can find them here:

    Using Gallery image captions: http://agallerydemo.wordpress.com/2012/07/28/gallery-as-an-index-page/

    Using a table instead of a Gallery:

    One other thing you might consider doing is changing themes. There are a number of them that use a grid layout on the front/home page of the site which will, of course, lead your visitors to the relevant post. No need for a Gallery at all.
