Link DIRECTLY to media

    Maybe I'm missing something but when I go link I get a box that allows me to type in a URL or link to one of my other posts. It would be great to see an option to link directly to uploaded media. There should be a choice to link to the attachment page or to the direct display URL itself.

    I realize that I can go the page, copy the URL and link that way but it's a convoluted way of doing things. I realize that I can insert directly into the post but it's not formatted the way I want and it adds the text link.

    I have wondered why I can't just link to uploaded media the way I can with posts. My 2 cents!

    That is a choice.

    Under "ATTACHMENT DISPLAY SETTINGS" is the option "Link to"

    If you make that "Media File" there you go.
