I have recently started having problems with linking images. I’m not sure when it started, or perhaps it was always like that, but I simply didn’t use this feature.
Anyway, after I upload whatever image I want to use and try to put an external website address in the field Link URL, after saving the link is automatically changed to that leading to the image file on the wordpress server. It happened many times, in different situations (posting single image, posting gallery) and in different posts.
Any ideas what the problem might be? Or perhaps I’m doing something wrong? Will be very grateful for some help.
