This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Images Fancified


Images Fancified alters the default WordPress attachment behavior:

  • Images can only be linked to their “large” versions (that way users reserve control over image size). Bigger versions of both individual images and gallery items are displayed using FancyBox automatically.
  • Attachment pages are disabled and entry points for linking to it are removed. Creating link to an attachment always creates a link to the file itself. Accessing an attachment page shows a 404.
  • Gallery shortcode is also overridden to produce clearer syntax similar to the marvellous Cleaner Gallery plugin by Justin Tadlock.


  1. Upload the images-fancified folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
