Theme conflict breaks image and external links (3 posts)

    Using this to add external links to images in gallery:
    Instead of outputting:
    <a href="url"> <img src="imgurl".../></a>
    It outputs:
    <a src="url"> <img href="imgurl"/></a>
    Ie, it mixes up href and src.
    Works fine in several other themes tested.
    Theme is themetrust's Mindful, but have got no answer from them so far.

    That is not a WordPress theme.

    Can you explain more? I don't understand.

    I created a new template file gallery-link.php. In it I replaced the href for the thumbnail to target a custom field (with links in it) instead of the image url.
    So instead of:
    <a href="<?php echo $image->imageURL ?>" title="<?php echo $image->description ?>"....
    I'm using:
    <a href="<?php echo $image->ngg_custom_fields["Link"] ?>" title="<?php echo $image->description ?>"....
    This opens whatever link I define in the link custom field rather than the full size image when the thumbnail is clicked.In this theme only, the output gets mangled, as described above - href and src are transposed.
