Link Gallery images to Pages and or Posts or external URL

  1. Probably one of the most-often mentioned, "missing" feature of the Gallery; the ability to link Gallery thumbnail images to Pages, Posts or external URLs rather than just to "none," "Attachment page" or "Media" file.

    A sample of recent and semi-recent forum posts:

    Currently this is being done via a table or simply inserting image thumbnails one next to another.

    I think it would be a great addition to WordPress.com's Gallery feature.

  2. I agree! Not sure why it was omitted in the first place.

  3. I'm with you both on this.

  4. Agreed. This would be a very welcomed feature.

  5. I'm surprised this option isn't available as well.

    Using the Origin theme, I was trying to create a slideshow on my static homepage via which readers can click on an image and it navigates them to parent or child "pages" in my custom menu.

    I've gotten around it by hand coding links into my image captions, but I had to use one of the other gallery layout options (went with tiles), as the links don't hold using slideshow.

    I've lost count of how many Google search results I perused before realising there's no way to achieve what I'd like to using my preferred, another free or most premium themes.

  6. Would love to see WordPress add this feature. Hate to have to keep using more and more plugins to accomplish simple things.

  7. @sporento-I have a workaround here if you are interested, but it is a far cry from what we're asking for here. Thanks for adding your voice.

    @letspour - We can't add plugins on WordPress.com and the site linked to your username isn't hosted here. So if you are interested in this being added to the Gallery feature in WP core, feel free to head on over to the WordPress.ORG website and suggest it there.

  8. This is such a basic and easy to add feature that seems like it would be so easy to add to the WP core. Would love to see it added.

  9. I'll add my support here for this.

  10. Sign me up! I think this is a feature that is sorely missing and I hope WordPress will add it for us very soon.

  11. +1.
    External links or links to wordpress.com pages or article would be nice in galleries.

    Please add my name to this request! It would certainly help everyone to be able to link out within a portfolio.

    Thanks for listening.

  13. Please add my name to this list of requests as well. I spent countless hours yesterday trying to figure out how to link pictures in a gallery on a page to specific posts. I ended up not being able to use my gallery. Sure would be nice!

  15. Cheryl:
    Check out this thread. This is how I've added links to my gallery photos on my site, http://www.gathering-flavors.com .

    It is a workaround, but one that works for now....

  16. Add my name to the list. So frustrating that you can add custom urls to images but not to images within galleries.

    And/or please make it easy to add images next to each other (at tabbed distances, i.e. like a gallery format) within a post or page, not below each other.

  17. Agreed - this feature would be great. I needed something like this so much that I created a gallery-like feature via CSS that allows me to arrange photos in a grid. Being photos, I can link them to posts and pages.

  18. Agreed. It should be included.

  19. I agree.......but not just thumbnails - I have a photo gallery going in squares - w/two larger pics to start. I like this and would like the option to link any photo in a gallery to any page/post to add material or talk about the photo!

  20. please include this option, it will be 100% perfect for my blog. Thank you

  21. I've come at this from every angle, I can and am crying Uncle...would accept any help int his arena!

  22. @hranilovich-if you need help with using the Gallery feature, won't you please start a new thread here http://en.forums.wordpress.com/?new=1 Thanks!

  23. I completely agree, sign me up! :)
