image on photo gallery "blog post" appears in header area

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I added some photos to a page in a simple standard WP gallery and when I view the page here: http://www.cabvi.org/photo-gallery/'>http://www.cabvi.org/photo-gallery/ and then click on the actual photos it takes me to another page: http://www.cabvi.org/photo-gallery/'>http://www.cabvi.org/photo-gallery/ that is apparently the "blog post" template and the image is repeated up on top above the header area for some reason. I can't find this in any of the template areas to remove it. Can someone help me? I'm not sure why it defaults to a blog post template either. Thanks!!

Hi When I want to go another page clicking a image I use in the edit visual mode Click image Go to ??insert/edit link (Alt+shift+A)??

@batman, I don't want to go any page in particular, just a page that does not have an image on top of the header. I am not sure I should I have to edit every link to make sure it doesn't take me to this default blog post page...and why can't I change the default blog post page to remove that from the top? It does not appear in my meta settings...

When setting up your WP image gallery, what links are input for the images in the gallery settings?

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

@catrina, I created the gallery by dragging and dropping three images into the uploader. It creates the links automatically. Upon checking, for example, the first photo link defaults to: http://www.cabvi.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/110328_cab_AR_175.jpg Does this help in the "investigation"? :)

Yes, it does. The thumbnail link should actually lead to that direct URL instead. Hm.

@catrina, is there something I can do to fix this without doing it manually each time for every photo? My client is going to be updating the site and I can't have her do that every time.

@Tan, See the codex for the [url="http://codex.wordpress.org/Gallery_Shortcode"]gallery shortcode[/url]. The default link for the image is the attachment's permalink which is what you're seeing. You can change this to link to the file itself by using the link attribute like so: [code][gallery link="file"][/code] A nice addition to that would be to just install a lightbox plugin like [url="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/fancybox-for-wordpress/"]FancyBox for Wordpress[/url] to display the larger images without loading another page :)
