[Resolved] Open Images in new tab enabled for Standard Image Gallery

  • I would love to see the “Create A Gallery” feature allow developers to make the images open in a new tab when clicked. I’m posting images via the gallery on my website at http://www.SecretsofTexasBluesGuitar.com but when the user clicks on the images, it redirects them off the page to the image location.

    It would be great to make it so they open in a new tab or even show up as a lightbox popup gallery.

    And (along with a few others) would argue loudly and endlessly against such a feature in core. Opening new windows or tabs can cause major issues for some users groups by breaking the browser back button and leaving them, effectively, stranded on the new window/tab.

    If someone wants to add this functionality via a plugin, fine but it should never be part of core.

    Nevermind. Found a plug-in that’s sufficient for what I need:
