Support » Plugin: Gallery Custom Links » Links Still Open in Lightbox

  • Resolved findwholeness


    Hello, I have disabled Gutenberg with a plugin because it has bugs that are interfering with basic post creation, so Gutenberg is not interfering with your plugin.

    The problem I am having is that I created a gallery of buttons that I plan to use to link externally to my Etsy store. I’ve installed the plugin, added the URLs to each of the buttons and selected to open in a new window, but when you click them, they are still linking to the default that is chosen (I’ve chosen “none” for now to discourage people clicking on a link that goes to an image).

    I am using the Dara template by Automatic, if that helps. I chose the grid page version of the template for the page I’m having issues with.

    I also tried to use the plugin to redirect the images below the gallery (so they link to my about page instead of the holding page for those few sentences). Same issue.

    Thank you for your help!

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    So you mean it doesn’t work even with a simple case, a standard gallery? To make sure, could you try to create a simple/standard gallery with 2-3 images, and set an URL for those images?

    Does it work if you do this?

    While doing that, can you have a quick look at your PHP Error Logs?

    Sorry, I wasn’t notified of your reply. It is a standard gallery. I just went to “add media -> insert gallery” and that is how I created it. I just tried again on a different page with the same results. Is it because it’s on a page, not a post?

    I don’t know where to find the PHP error logs.

    Can you please try again with the latest version? 🙂 It should work now.

    I’m afraid it’s doing the same thing. The image just opens the image file, not the link I put in.

    Mmm, that’s going to be way more complicated then. Can you contact me directly? Here:

    I apologize, I didn’t see there was a plugin update to be installed. Since installing it, the problem is resolved. Thank you so much for your help!
