Thumbnail images do not open in new window

Recommended Posts


I am unable to open my images in a new window, I am very new to pagelines. Probably something basic has been missed out.

All images go back to a page.

Please help.

If you're referring to the thumbnail you have added to a post using the Featured Image option, then it won't open in a new window/tab, it will open that URL from within the same tab/window.


If you're referring to images in which you have manually added to your posts/pages using the media uploader in WordPress then you will need to manually add the target attribute to your code, see here for more information - http://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_a_target.asp

Please search our forums, before posting!

Thanks Danny,


This helps. I am using the Word Press Media Uploader,  Wanted to know if I can make a generic setting in Word press editor / API, so that I do not have to make this change every time I add a gallery/ Media file using the media uploader.

When you add an image to a post/page, you will see this: https://cloudup.com/coZK78xc9EB where it says 'Link To' you can select the image itself, the attachment page, a custom URL or None.

      I'm trying to add a Careers page to a site to display job openings. The plan is to create a Post using a subcategory 'Careers' and then display those on the page. All of the post sections in PL seem to include images and there's no obvious way to remove them or include an excerpt from the post. 
      Any suggestions?

      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Hey there,
      I am working on BentleyRolling.com. I used grams on MoonbodySoul.com and all the images are cropped to a square, whether they are square or 4:5 when posted on instagram, they still get cropped to a square. This looks way better than some being squares and some being 4:5. Did something change since I designed MoonBodySoul.com with Platform5? Can you help me crop all images to a square on BentleyRolling.com 
      All the best,

      How do I control the lightbox effect on the plugin "popthumbs"?  On mobile, it opens up much to small then when expanded it opens to large.  I would like to control the the lightbox to like 90% of the viewer window but I can't figure out how/where to control that.

      I am using pl-section-journey and hiding most of the images. When running the page via google speed insights, it tells to optimize all the images that are in this plugins default. (e.g. https://queue-it.com/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-journey/images/drawer-5.jpg ) Like this one that is not visible on the website, but is a part of the plugin and comes up in google insights.
      I've deleted all the images in the plugin, but they still seem to come up. Ref. this page: queue-it.com/features
