WP Showcase plugin - Linking images to pages WordPress

  • SOLVED

Hi Guys

I want to link the images on this home page through to various different pages

http://184.173.206.192/~swo/naty.com

I'm using the WPShowcase plugin and thought the little pencil icon in the gallery settings would allow me to link out to other pages. But it does not seem to be working as I expected.

Does anyone know why or am I just making a mistake.

or would you suggest an alternative plug in for this?

Many thanks
Steve

Can you link me to the plugin? For some reason link to the pages are going inside the Title field. Are you sure you are adding links in the correct settings?

Hi Steve, here are three alternate methods:

1) use this plugin to allow custom external links in the default wp gallery

2) build a gallery view from bookmarks:

3) use this gallery extension to add a custom URL to your wp images
