Gallery link to external URL
Yes, that is the way that the Gallery is coded. However, you can add clickable links to external pages to either the image caption or in the description of the image.
I tried that. Its a hokey workaround that does not really work when you want something visual like the gallery rectangular layout option.
Strange that they did not just allow the option for an external link on the gallery – it seems like it would be an almost trivial addition to the feature as the gallery already links somewhere – all that would be needed is linking somewhere else…
With the exception of the Circle type, which does not show any caption, if you are using the square or rectangle tiled mosaic, you can click on the Caption and be taken to another URL.
Hokey or not, that’s what we have. Gallery thumbnails currently will only link to the Image Carousel, the original image or the image Attachment page, depending on your Media and Gallery settings.
Perhaps things will change with a future version of the Gallery. I’ll ask to have this moved to the Ideas forum.
