Adding Custom Links in WordPress Gallery Images

WP Gallery Custom Links is WordPress plugin that allows you to add custom link over any image inside the gallery. What actually this plugin does is that it adds a Gallery Link URL field when editing images. If the image is included in a gallery, the Gallery Link URL value will be used as the link on the image instead of the raw file or the attachment post.

This plugin is designed to work even if customizations have been made via the post_gallery WordPress filter; instead of replacing the entire post_gallery function, it calls the normal function and simply replaces the link hrefs in the generated output.

Features that WP Gallery Custom Links Plugin Gives:

  • You can specify a custom Gallery Link URL on any gallery image
  • Use “[none]” as the Gallery Link URL to remove the link for that gallery image
  • For each gallery image, you can select a Gallery Link Target (“Same Window” or “New Window”)
  • For each gallery image, you can select how to handle Lightbox and other onClick events (“Remove” or “Keep”)
  • And much more…
