    I have set up post thumbnails as set out in this tutorial.

    http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-themes/how-to-add-post-thumbnails-in-wordpress/

    I call on the image to show in a post by using
    <?php the_post_thumbnail('my-custom-image'); ?>

    This works great, I would however like this image to be linked so that it opens with fancybox showing the full image size.

    I’ve tried this code:

    <a rel="fancybox" href="<?php $thumbnail_id=get_the_post_thumbnail($post->ID); preg_match ('/src="(.*)" class/',$thumbnail_id,$link); echo $link[1];
    ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail('my-custom-image'); ?></a>

    But it only opens the thumbnail when the image is clicked.

    Any tips?
