Gallery Link To "None" is still opening the image

When you set the gallery link option to None, the images aren’t clickable. If you inserted the gallery then edited it to select None, you probably forgot to click Update (post) after you clicked Update Gallery.
@timethief: Related, yes, but not exactly what I’m getting at.
@justpi: The post I’ve been working with is not published, but I assure you I have been refreshing the preview after every edit. That would be a pretty rookie mistake.
At any rate, I decided to just abandon the Gallery for what I’m trying to accomplish. It took a while but I got it to look how I wanted without it.
I still don’t understand why when set to “None” the images were still clickable. I just tried it again with a fresh new Gallery, set it to “None” right from the beginning, and the images are still clickable and go to the attachment page. Perhaps it’s something with the coding for my theme not allowing that setting.
Galleries work the same no matter what the theme.
If you switch the editor to “Text” you should see the gallery shortcode. Could you please paste the shortcode here?
Also note Jen’s reply here:
Here’s the shortcode:
[gallery type="square" link="none" ids="10507,10516,10515,10514,10509,10508"]
What Jen said in that thread definitely relates directly to this. Sounds like I am not crazy and this is a bug. Oh well, like I said, I just opted to not use the Gallery to get around the problem. I think what I accomplished honestly looks better anyways. The grid of images at the end of this post: http://design-vox.com/2013/12/20/shopping-weddings-on-etsy/
By the way thank you for your help.
We’ve been able to add links in image captions and image descriptions for a while now, but linking Gallery thumbnails to “None” will only work when using the default Thumbnail Gallery and so far only when the Photo Carousel is turned off. Not the best of all worlds by far.
