Adding Custom Links To Gallery Images

Last Update: March 14, 2018

You know it is very easy to add custom links into single images in your posts and pages but you cannot add these links into your gallery images in the same way. I had no idea that there is a way to do this and discovered by accident while searching for something else.

I love using galleries and was so happy to discover this plugin. Most of you probably already know about it but I am so not the least bit techy that I'm probably the last one left to know this.

The free plugin is called WP Gallery Custom Links. It is so simple that once installed and activated there is nothing else to do. When you create a gallery, as you add each image the box for the custom link is just right there.

So that's it in a nutshell! I hope this will help at least one person. Let me know!

Hi Fran

I'm not there yet, but I made a note of it - thank you! It sure sounds like a handy thing to have.

Awww, don't worry Fran, I'm not that techy either! ;-) Sending you an e-hug! You do very well! :-)

Wishing you all the very best!
