[resolved] Inserting Images: "Link URL" won't default to NONE (3 posts)

    I'm using Genesis and a StudioPress Magazine child theme.

    I don't want a "Link URL" associated with any of my images, but no matter what I do the insertion form always adds the image link. In earlier versions of WP, I just had to select None once and that would remain the default.

    I believe this is a bug but right now I'd like to know how to make it default to None even if I have to hack the code. Thanks!

    You can to go into the 'secret' WordPress options admin page at
    to change the default setting.

    Look for image_default_link_type. The value will show as file

    The options that can go here are

    • file
    • post
    • none

    Change it to none hit "save changes"

    You can also change this setting by adding


    To your theme's functions.php (or custom functionality plugin if you have one)
