Support » Plugin: WP AMP Ninja » Links inside amp pages

  • Hi,

    If there are any links in the content on amp pages, if it’s an image pointing to a url or text, instead of it pointing to the amp version of the link it either points to href=”#” which opens up the same page or it is pointing to the non-amp version of the page.

    The site is

    For example page you can look at this page for images with links:

    For example page you can look at this page for text with links:

    Can you please advise as to why this is happening and how to fix it?

    BTW I have tried ALL Amp plugins and so far your is the only one that handles everything well.. video, images.. everything.. the others DO NOT.. Great job 🙂

  • Hello,

    I’m wondering if you’ve had a chance to look at this? This is a critical issue as the links on the amp pages are going to the non-amp pages.



    I have tried a number of the AMP plugins and find that Ninja is very clean. Agreed, a great job.

    Regarding the link issue I think that this isn’t a binary decision, there may be times when you don’t want the link to automatically go to the non-AMP resource.

    But generally I would think this should be fixed.

    BTW, I assume you have the paid version of the plugin, lots more features.

    Hi Jordan,

    Thanks for the reply. I’m not sure if we are talking about the same plugin? I do not see any paid version.

    I can see for some odd reason somebody might not want the link to automatically go to the non-amp version. But as far as inherent functionality it makes absolutely no sense to me that is should be any other way by default. Somebody does a search on google on their phone. They get to a page on your site on the AMP version because google decided to show that. Then on that page they click a link and it goes to the non-amp page? How would that ever make any sense 🙂 I’m open to any explanation that would make any sense why anybody would do that or why it should not go to another AMP page from the page they just viewed.

    If defeats the whole point and purpose of AMP. Accelerated MOBILE Pages. If you wanted them on the regular site then AMP is a mute point. If they’re on a MOBILE device, viewing your Accelerated MOBILE Page then that’s what they should be able go to to and see.

    It’s kind of like being in a car, pressing the gas peddle and it goes forward then you try to turn right and suddenly you’re sitting on a bicycle.


    Here’s the paid version:

    OK, I’ll concede the point, just get it fixed. But what if its an external link and there isn’t an AMP version of that site?

    Hi Jordan,

    Great thanks! Didn’t know a paid version existed. I’m not sure how to get it fixed I’m not the developer that’s why I came here in the first place to post this and bring it up with the developer 🙂

    Well if it’s an external link it’s an external link! If you’re on and there’s a link out to then great why would that be an AMP link? it shouldn’t but if you’re inside and you click on a Menu item or you’re reading a page that says hey! go here on another page on my site to read the rest… then that should be AMP not jump to your regular version.

    Do you have this paid module and does it address my concern? do inside links work and bring up AMP version of the site?

    Thanks much for the help.

    I added an external link to one of my images and rendered using ?wpamp and it worked, didn’t loss the URL.

    Does that help?



    perhaps 🙂 Can you post your URL so I can take a look please?
