Support » Plugin: WordPress Gallery Plugin - NextGEN Gallery » No more ‘target blank’ link functionality

  • The new version stripped all of the links in my galleries of the target=”_blank” code, so now links don’t open in a new window anymore. Makes sites look very unprofessional when visitors leave your site after clicking a link. Used to be an ok plugin but now after using it for years it’s too basic, clunky and buggy – time to move on.

    HTML links in the Pro Lightbox effect open in new windows by default.
    The target=”_blank” isn’t required for Pro Lightbox descriptions.

    You just need to check the correct UL.
    Here is a sample HTML code

    <a href=""></a>

    We hope this helps. Please let us know if we can answer any other questions.

    I have also informed that it will be available for all the galleries displays in our next release.

    Let us know if you need anything else 🙂

    Don’t have the Pro version, this page is about the free version. Glad that you are adding it to the next release. But it has been affecting galleries negatively ever since that functionality was stripped out, which probably many people haven’t been aware of. Thanks for your response.

    I am using NextGen Gallery in Storefront. I would like to create a “Jump To” link from a gallery image to the product images in another gallery that is waaayyyy down that same page. Thanks!
