Gallery with Links instead of Popups (7 posts)

    Hi Guys,

    Basically I need a Gallery of images which when clicked take your through a URL of your choice.

    I know how to this via code, but this site will be in the hand of a non technical person, so I wanted something which is as easy to use as the next-gen gallery, but allows you to add links.

    Do you know any good plugins, or how I can do this?

  2. The WordPress built in Gallery shortcode can do that, though it depends what you mean by a 'URL of your choice'?

    By URL of your choice I mean for example I have a gallery of 10 images, each with it's own different link. These should be easily placed through the backend so a non technical person can handle it.

    I am not sure that this can be done via the gallery shortcode you gave me.

  5. Are the images uploaded in WordPress itself? Or are you wanting to pull them in via a third party app like Flickr, ZenPhoto or whatever?

    I want it to be a plugin or something via WordPress

  7. Okay, if you upload pics via the WordPress media tool (i.e. the normal way), you CAN make galleries that open a new page (though not in a new window that I'm aware of).

    Matt does it with the built in :)
