#6633 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Image URL in galleries can't be set to link to the image directly

When I make a gallery, I want the gallery to link to the images directly. The Image URL is set this way by default.

And yet, when the actual post is published, the images link to some sort of sub-post showing *yet another* medium thumbnail.

Only by clicking that can I view the actual image in its unmodified form.

+1. Galleries are useless (for me) without this.

    edit media.php in the wp-includes dir:

    The line number 447 is as follows in 2.6.2:

    $link = wp_get_attachment_link($id, $size, true);

    change it to:

    $link = wp_get_attachment_link($id, $size, false);

    and it should work!

This works for me, it's just a tweak. It would be nice if this was an option by Settings.

  • Priority changed from high to low
  • Severity changed from normal to minor
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

In 2.7 we will have gallery options that will allow this.
