WP Gallery Custom Links
[resolved] linking from within the gallery (3 posts)

    Thanks so much for making this plugin. I'm sure it's something I'm doing wrong, but I can seem to get the image to link to a page with an embedded youtube video. When ones clicks on the image in the Jetpack tiled mosaic, it goes straight to the page with the video. I thought this plugin set the gallery image to link to the new page. What am I missing?

    Here's an ugly example: http://artemisediting.com/media/watch

    I'm not sure I understand - in your example, I see the top left image is set to link to /media/watch/dean-karlan-poverty-measures/ in a new window, instead of the attachment page for the image (or whatever javascript carousel/lightbox display your theme is using). When I click that image, it opens that page in a new tab/window, which is what it's set to do in the source. How is this different from what you are expecting to see?

    If you're attempting to get the youtube video to show up in the carousel/lightbox display instead of a new page, that's something you'd need to handle with the javascript for the carousel/lightbox - this plugin just changes link hrefs. Although it appears that the jetpack carousel doesn't support videos:

    Since the original poster has no further information, I'm going to mark this as resolved.
