    Please, how can I link a featured image directly into a page ?
    So when the visitor click on the featured image, it doesn't open it, but opens an html page.

    For example, I need to link the featured image of this post:

    To this link:

    Thank you !

    Hello VR360,

    You can disable the image when editing the post, http://mysitemyway.com/docs/index.php?title=Post_Options#Disable_Featured_Post_Image.

    And then insert your own with our image_frame or fancy_images shortcodes.

    <a href = '#'>
    [image_frame link_to = "false" prettyphoto = "false"]

    I would like to do the same thing here.

    The solution you suggested means not having an image at all. What I'd like is that when you click on an image it goes to the post. I don't want any image within the post, so need to use the featured image option.

    Are you talking about your portfolio page? There is an option for that when editing the portfolio post, http://mysitemyway.com/docs/index.php/Using_the_Portfolio#Link_to_Post.

    Yes I found that, but I'm talking about a blog index page restricted by category: http://joriches.com/case-study-library/

    I am using this shortcode: [blog_grid column="4" showposts="12" post_content="excerpt" category_in="89" disable="meta"]

    Try adding this on line 58 in /wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/lib/functions/image.php,

    if (is_page()) { $link_to = get_permalink(); $prettyphoto = ""; }

    Hi Elliot,

    That killed the whole site, but it's entirely possible that this was because I'm not skilled enough to do this.

    Is there a way of using the additional code fields within the WP-admin to do this rather than let an idiot like me loose on code?

    Download the attached zip file and extract into /wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/lib/functions/.

    Thanks for that!

    It might be a good idea to implement this option in the theme options. I think a lot of people want this.
    Keep up the good work.

    This works great for me too!

    I also think it would be a very good idea to add this function in your themes in the near future.

    I've noticed that when the blog posts are on the home page then clicking on the picture takes you to the blog post. It does seem like this would be something you could enable for other pages as well.

  14. Awesome. Thanks for the function tweak. I would like to echo the sentiments that this would be a nice option to have. It's odd that this is an option for portfolio posts but not blog posts. Nonetheless the file above did the trick.
