    Hi RoamFree,

    It’s true that you only can link a gallery to the page, and not a specific image.
    It is how ever possible to link a gallery, and select as return type ‘All of the images (in array)”, which will gave you an array with all of the images in the gallery, so you can do with it whatever you want. For an example of this array, please see the third screenshot.

    Does this answer your question? 🙂

    Nope, does not answer my question. I was thinking of “link” as having the meaning of an “A” tag’s URL linking to a destination in the Web. It sounds as if you’re using “link” to refer to some WordPress data structure… which means the plugin’s description is even more ambiguous than I thought.

    Linking means making a connection between a post and a gallery in this case. You can choose one, or more galleries at the post admin page. These galleries are then available in the templates. There you’re free to do with it whatever you want.

    Linking in this case doesn’t mean a url, but simply making a connection between these two, which gives you the ability to fetch a specific (linked) gallery and show it in the template.

    Didn’t think it was that hard to understand?

    It’s not hard to understand once the context is established as being for WordPress internal use. But “link to pages” can have several meanings, so maybe something can be added to the plugin’s description which makes clear whether the plugin requires theme alterations, or how the effects of the plugin can be used. Installation tab just says this can be installed as a plugin, but other pages don’t say what the effects will be nor where they will be visible.

    Hmm, that’s totally true. I’ll update the information soon. I’ll try to explain it in a different way and I’ll add some more information about the functionality of the plugin.

    Thanks for mentioning this!
