So I used the gallery feature yesterday for the first time since the dashboard changed. I specifically chose the option to link the thumbnails to the image file and NOT the attachment page (because I hate that we have no control over the attachment page). So I'm looking at my stats today and what do I see? A bunch of views to attachment pages! What the heck is going on? Did I do something wrong?

Gallery question - attachment pages
BTW - when I click on the photos in the gallery, I am properly taken to the larger image and NOT an attachment page. (The post is here http://blog.vivianpaige.com/2008/12/26/christmas-cards-from-our-electeds/ ) So I am stumped as to how folks are even getting to the attachment page (like this one http://blog.vivianpaige.com/2008/12/26/christmas-cards-from-our-electeds/webbxmas08/ )
Beats me, too. I definitely cannot access an attachment page in your blog. Tried the same thing in mine, and the stats give me visits to the post only, not an attachment page. I even tried it again after switching the default for uploading to "Post URL" (which also gives you an attachment page), just in case: no difference. I guess that's one for Jennifer!
I just figured it out - those links are coming from my email subscribers! (I subscribe to my own email list.)
Hmm - now the question is why? Why is the feed going to the attachment pages?
