How to make full-sized image show the first time you click on a post (7 posts)

    If you look at this page http://www.daily-mash.com/wordpress2/testingbigger/ - it is an image that I post on my blog. This is what you are taken to if you click on the post. Click the image again - you are taken to a page that has no sidebars and it shows a larger version of the image (http://www.daily-mash.com/wordpress2/testingbigger/98462-its-always-sunny-in-philadelphia-its-always-sunny-in-philadelphia/)

    is there any way to make it go to the page with the larger version of the image the FIRST time you click the image and not the second? It seems redundant to have to click on the image over and over again to get to the larger version of it - thanks in advance for your help!

    Ok. There is a specific support forum for Twenty Twelve here which may be more help:

    http://wordpress.org/support/theme/twentytwelve

    But here are a few things to look for. First, the page that you're seeing on your second click is the image's "attachment page," which is generated by the Media Library. So, what you want is a way to display the attachment page as a post, which I can't figure out either (sorry!).

    You could create a child theme to Twenty Twelve and define a new post type that mimics the attachment pages - that's probably the easiest thing. But I'm sure others may have better ideas.
