It would be nice to be able to add a link to picture and gallery captions. I currently use the "WP Gallery Custom Links" plugin to add unique links to the individual images in a gallery but it does not extend to the captions.
I know we can wrap the captions inside "a" tags and to date, that has been what I have been doing. The only plugins I have found that add links to the captions require as much effort as coding the "a" tags into the caption.
What I am proposing is adding a tool similar to the links button in the TinyMce formatting section of the visual editor which would streamline the process and take much less time.
