Linking Smugmug to wordpress 3.7.1 site (10 posts)

    I believe I have thoroughly checked and that there is no other posting on this:

    I would like to know the best way to link my smugmug photo gallery to my WordPress.org 3.7.1 - generated website of blog.

    Right now it is "text linked". And I believe that is because I simply did not know what I was doing when I did it.

    I would like to link robertkingimages.smugmug.com (my photo gallery) to itsaboutnature.net (my wordpress - generated website)

    The wordpress-generated site was only started last weekend. At the top of the homepage of itsaboutnature.net there is a Photo Gallery option. If you click onto Photo Gallery it will take you to a page that shows the option "Link Text". Clicking onto that brings you to the Photo Gallery. I want a direct link so that when you click onto Photo Gallery it will bring you directly to the Photo Gallery. Once in Photo Gallery you click onto New Link in the left hand margin and it brings you back to itsaboutnature.

    Hope you can help.

    Thank you
    Robert King

    Have you considered hiring someone to do this for you? WordPress.org doesn't support commercial products so we can't help you there.

    What would be nice is if Smugmug would provide a public API (they probably don't as a commercial vendor) so that you could access your images through WordPress and them save them into the same database that WordPress uses.

    And what is it about my endeavor that according to wordpress.org rules makes it a commercial product?

    If you are asking how to make the Photo Gallery Menu item link directly to your Smug Mug page, yes, you can do that - using a Custom Menu, you can make a custom link - see:


    As to the Smug Mug link back to WP, you will have to ask them about that side of it.

    I am waiting for your answer. There is nothing about my itsaboutnature.net endeavor that is commercial at all. At least not at this time.

    itsaboutnature.net was conceived to help nature......not to turn a buck.

    I am still waiting.

    Did you see what I posted? It's not about your site - I think this is what Andrew is referring to:

    BTW, there are a few plugins related to SmugMug - have you looked at any of them?


  9. Waiting? You've already been answered. Twice. ;)

    Try this plugin search. On of these may help you; you'll need to try then and see if one of those work for you.


    Edit: Seriously. WPyogi beat me to the reply by only 5 seconds. :)
