Disabling 'View full size' image in a gallery
I was wondering if there is a way of disabling the ‘View full size’ image option when using the carousel slideshow? (My theme is Mixfolio)
I tried changing the link to url option to ‘none’ when uploading images but I think this may only work when images are not in a gallery.
I found some code that does the job, but this doesn’t work without buying an upgrade.
The blog I need help with is alberttilley.wordpress.com.
If you are referring to the link in the Photo Carousel itself, then no. But that link is also active in a Gallery when you disable the Carousel and link to Media or Attachment Page. Both lead the viewer to a full-size image.
If in general you don’t want large images displayed, then only upload optimized versions, 637 pixels wide (for Mixfolio), at 72 dpi. This has the following advantages:
- shorter upload time
- less storage space used
- shorter loading time for visitor
- images viewed are sharper
The other possibility is to not use the Gallery feature at all and insert all your images at “full size” and link to “none”, but I strongly recommend optimizing them first for the same reasons above.

Thanks for the suggestion – I will try resizing the images.
I strongly support the removal of this full view option.
1. I have already uploaded my images to the max size I wish….
but more importantly, so not adding to anyone’s experience…
2. When I select the button it brings me out of the carousel completely, to a blank page, with all obvious navigation gone.
