[Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] How Do I add custom hyperlinks to images in a gallery (5 posts)

    I am using the latest version of NextGen Gallery and WordPress.

    I am trying to add customized hyperlinks to indvidual images in a gallery.

    For example, for each image in a gallery, I want to provide a clickable Photobucket url for downloading a high resolution version of the image. See the gallery at the bottom of http://www.techtangerine.com/design/

    I can of course put the link into the description. But it is not clickable. I have tried using all sorts of HTML tags etc but that does not work either.

    I know there are some complicated hacks out there which involve using NextGen Gallery Custom Fields and adding some code to the NextGen Gallery core files (whih is lost when the plugin is updated).

    But honestly, isn't there a simpler way to add hyperlinks to images?

    If there isn't, I hope the plugin author (Alex Rabe) will take this as a feature request.

    It's only complicated for certain gallery types. Slideshows for example are annoying to get right.
    But the default gallery is simple to do. You just need to add a tag to the NGG template. You can even then move the template into your theme so it won't get overwritten when you update.

    I am gonna experiment with photoblogging databases, and if it doesn't work, I am back to to NextGen Custom Fields I suppose.

    how did you solve the problem with the custom fields link in the gallery thumbnailview?

    I have the same problem.

    My requirements were a bit complex. So I installed Piwigo Gallery and then used the Piwigomedia plugin for WordPress.

    See http://www.techtangerine.com/2012/01/15/piwigo-and-zenphoto-a-comparative-review/

    However, I do understand that others have simpler needs.
