    In order to do that you will need to start by following the advanced instructions:

    1. Create a folder called nggallery within your WordPress theme.
    2. Copy gallery-galleryview.php from the “view” folder of the plugin and place it within the nggallery folder you created.
    3. Once copied over you can modify the template as needed, use the comments at the top of the page as a starting point.

    How to add a link on an individual image in the slideshow:

    I was beating my head against a wall on this for awhile, so hopefully this will be helpful to someone else. It involves editing the files of the plugin itself, so it’s not perfect.

    First, put the links you want in the description field of the images in the gallery.

    Once you have your links in place, open up plugins/nextgen-galleryview2/galleryview/js/jquery.galleryview.js

    Insert after line 465 the following code

    var mssg = "'" + gvImage.attrs.description + "'";
    var js = "" + mssg + ");";
    img.attr("onclick", js);

    Save and upload your changes.

    Code is dirty, but it works.

    You may want to open an issue regarding adding support for linking the images. In the meantime, you can use wp_dequeue_script('jquery-galleryview'); then provide your version of the script.
