    Click the image in the top right associated with
    "It’s really about the here and now. Nov. 26, 2009 READ ARTICLE"

    On the desktop I can see READ ARTICLE next to the Caption, but on the mobile view it does not appear. So I added READ ARTICLE link

    <a href=http://www.ginapiccalo.com/journalism/the-atlanta-journal-constitution-page/its-really-about-the-here-and-now-3/#readarticle>READ ARTICLE</a>
    to the Description.

    Is it possible to show the link in the image Caption on mobile view?

    The link seems to be displayed on Mobile, on my end. Have you managed to solve the issue by yourself?

    Yes. I did. I added the following code in the image description.

    <p style="text-align: center;">It’s really about the here and now. Nov. 26, 2009<br><a href=http://www.ginapiccalo.com/journalism/the-atlanta-journal-constitution-page/its-really-about-the-here-and-now-3/#readarticle>READ ARTICLE</a></p>

    Now the link is NOT working!!!!

    When I click READ ARTICLE below It’s really about the here and now. Nov. 26, 2009 (top right image in carousel)
    http://www.ginapiccalo.com/projects/the-atlanta-journal-constitution/, it should go to directly to http://www.ginapiccalo.com/journalism/the-atlanta-journal-constitution-page/its-really-about-the-here-and-now-the-atlanta-journal-constitution/#readarticle.

    Instead it open the carousel slideshow (http://www.ginapiccalo.com/projects/the-atlanta-journal-constitution/#jp-carousel-864), and then I must click READ ARTICLE again to actually go to http://www.ginapiccalo.com/journalism/the-atlanta-journal-constitution-page/its-really-about-the-here-and-now-the-atlanta-journal-constitution/#readarticle.

    In the Caption, I have the following.

    <p style="text-align: center;">It’s really about the here and now. Nov. 26, 2009<br><a href=http://www.ginapiccalo.com/journalism/the-atlanta-journal-constitution-page/its-really-about-the-here-and-now-the-atlanta-journal-constitution/#readarticle>READ ARTICLE</a></p>

    READ ARTICLE works in the slideshow bout not in the Project page.

    this is in the image caption:

    <p style="text-align: center;">It’s really about the here and now. Nov. 26, 2009<br><a href=http://www.ginapiccalo.com/journalism/the-atlanta-journal-constitution-page/its-really-about-the-here-and-now-the-atlanta-journal-constitution/#readarticle>READ ARTICLE</a></p>

    Could you try to remove the anchor, and link to the article directly?

    Since you do not really use the Carousel in this case, it might be easier to insert multiple single images instead of using the Gallery feature, and link each image to a different article.

    I created a Page http://www.ginapiccalo.com/journalism/the-atlanta-journal-constitution-page/, and the links do work, but the formatting is wrong. the last image wants to go to the right.

    http://www.ginapiccalo.com/projects/the-atlanta-journal-constitution/ is a project using Carousel and looks more elegant. I did try the link without #readarticle, but it did not change the fact that the READ ARTICLE link does not work from the Project page http://www.ginapiccalo.com/journalism/the-atlanta-journal-constitution-page/its-really-about-the-here-and-now-the-atlanta-journal-constitution/#readarticle

    I'm sure READ ARTICLE worked from the project page and in Carousel one week ago.

    All "Read article" links now seem to work. I assume you've found the source of the problem on your site?

    The text READ ARTICLE now goes directly to the pages, but how can I get the images to do this as well? Currently, the default is for the carousel to show the slideshow when you click the images.

    Also, could you help me add a like margin for the image captions in the slideshow for the mobile view?

    thank you.

    If you want the images to link to a specific page when you click on them, you will have to insert each image separately; WordPress galleries do not allow you to link gallery images to specific pages.

    I did that. See http://www.ginapiccalo.com/the-atlanta-journal-constitution-page-images/. But how can I get the images to be responsive/proportional/scale in size like in Carousel when viewing on small/mobile screens?

    This page looks good, and allows you to add links to the images.

    But how can I get the images to be responsive/proportional/scale in size like in Carousel when viewing on small/mobile screens?

    The gallery image sizes are not handled by Carousel, but by your theme. You can check the existing gallery styles and apply them to single images as well.

    If you do not feel comfortable editing your theme CSS, you can look for WordPress professionals who can help you here:

    I wrote the theme developers to see what can be done.

    Can anyone help me set-up a link on an image in a carousel to click through to another page. On my home page I have a carousel that I am now showing offers on. I want to be able to click on the image in the carousel so that views can go direct to the offers page. See website http://www.acttivo.co.uk

    Thanks in advance...

    @marcotarquini I'm afraid that's not possible. Carousel uses the core WordPress Gallery system here:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/The_WordPress_Gallery

    WordPress Galleries do not allow you to specify custom links for images within a gallery. To do so, you will have to insert each image separately, by following the instructions here:
