Hi, I can link from single pictures within my site so that when a user clicks on the picture a new window opens with more info, but I can't link in the same way from a picture within a picure gallery, does anyone know how? Any help appreciated, thanks, John

Hello John,

With the Picture Gallery Widget, it is not possible to add links to your pictures. I'm sorry.

If you wish to incorporate links, you will need to use a Picture Widget instead and add a link that way. However, this means you lose the "lightbox" effect.

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Hi John,

As far as I know it is not on the immediate road-map for the picture gallery widget but I am going to put it forward to our developers. In the meantime I would suggest using Diane's work-around.

This can be done. Click on "Edit" in the upper left corner of the widget. Add the following code to the area that says "Click here to edit the photo hover text".

<a href="http://wolfmediaplus.com">Click here </a>

Change the url to whatever you want, and change the text "Click here" if you want. Do try this on a test page first!!

This will put a link on the larger image in the lightbox, similar to the Flickr one.
