Customization is the name of the game in today’s age. The more an application is customized, the easier it will be for you to operate. The same thing applies to WordPress as well. Wouldn’t it be just perfect if the links to your gallery images in WordPress were customized as per your requirements? It will be just the icing on the cake you generally look for.
But the sad news is that till date there hasn’t been a plugin which can claim to have full customization of gallery images in WordPress. But here, we will walk you through the whole process of installing an effective plugin which can make your life much easier than ever before.
Follow the following steps and rest assured that you will be able to customize your gallery images in WordPress at ease.
So before, learning how to add custom links to a gallery of images, you should make yourself familiar with the process of adding a single image. To carry out this procedure simply upload your image file using the media uploader. Once it is uploaded, the image can be inter-linked to a custom URL under attachment display settings. To add custom links to a gallery of images, you would need to install WordPress Gallery Custom Links Plugin.
The best feature of this plugin is that there aren’t any settings for you to configure. The customised links are in-built and can be seen in the gallery itself.
Technically, there are only two steps to add custom links to the gallery images in WordPress. Firstly, simply upload the ‘wp-gallery-custom-links’ folder to ‘/wp-content/plugins/’directory. Secondly, activate the plugin through plugins menu in WordPress.
Above is the screenshot on how the screen will actually look like when you install this plugin. As you can see there are a number of tabs through which you can navigate and add custom links to your gallery images at will. External websites can also be linked with the help of this plugin. Moreover, this plugin has the capability to nest itself among other plugins.
This plugin is truly innovative and it is just the right kind of application to customize your WordPress application. If you face any problems in installing this plugin, simply log on to the official WordPress website and follow the installation process described over there. However, there won’t be any need of doing that because the steps which are mentioned above will serve you well in this regard.
