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.

      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

      Hi there!
      I'm trying to create a featured image for my new blog post. It has text in it, and when I add it as a featured image some of the text is cut off on the right.
      Could I get the ideal dimensions for featured images? Or, a way to customise the dimensions so that they are easier to fit in the way I need?
      Thank you kindly
