  • I know how to add links to images in Classic Editor, but I cannot figure it out in this new version and I’ve been trying for an hour and a half! I just want people to be able to click on an image in my post and go to another site.

  • If you’re using an Image Block, check the Block Settings panel on the right side for Link Settings. Expand that and you can specify Link To Custom URL, provide the Link URL, and choose Open In New Tab (if you want that).

    I think this only works with an Image Block, not with a Gallery Block.

    Yes, people seem to not be seeing this easily.

    When you have an image block selected: Link Settings in the right hand sidebar.

    Wow thanks for the image, I completely missed this as well. Seems obvious now, but I’ve been adding custom html all over the place for classes, image links, etc.

    Why is it that I can assign a link to an Image Block but NOT to an Inline Image?

    And why is it that I cannot select a WordPress post as link in an Image Block’s link settings?
