Support » Fixing WordPress » Inserting Images: "Link URL" won't default to NONE

  • Resolved beggers


    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)

    Thanks, that solved the problem! I really appreciate it.
