Custom Links on images within a gallery

    This plugin did exactly what I needed for years but now seems to have a conflict with Jetpack in WP 4.7 and seems to be no longer supported by the developer : (

    You can now use the free version of the plugin PhotoBlocks
    It works nice on WordPress 4.9.8.
    You can set an URL for each image and can choose to display the page in the same / a new window or a light box.

    Several plugin editors that use blocks have this feature.

    It seems reasonble for UX that images that are on display on a website page should be handled consistently.

    A user looking down a page may see some single images. Or a grid displaying several images.

    For that user it is nice if the images in a grid/gallery are clickable to go to meaningful links.

    Particularly if single images on the same page or site are already clickable to go to meaningful links.

    The web is increasingly visual in terms of guiding users to the most salient information and promises to be more so in future.

    I understand that underlying coding may make this difficult if it is significantly different for gallery images vs single images.

    Still waiting for this feature. When will WP add this?
    Really disappointing that I need a heavy plugin for such a simple feature.

    The issue on GitHub become more active again:

    I've added a suggestion, that the 'Link To' setting should have the option 'Custom URLs'. When this is activated, and you click on a single Gallery image, an URL input appears over the image, where you can choose to link an internal or external URL (more info in the issue).

    What do you think about that idea? Feel free to comment the issue on GitHub aswell! :)

    8 years of requests and we are still waiting. The plugins aren't working for my particular blog set up. Now I have plenty of posts with galleries that no longer link.

    It should have been a feature years ago.
