Create URL link for photos

Permalink Browser Info Environment
Hi Tony,

Feature request:

Is there a way to assign one individual URL link to one image (and so forth for all images)? Then when users mouseover the image, they see a little hand that encourages them to click on the image which then takes them to the URL's website.

Many thanks indeed,

Luke

yeah, this is really easy with the ProPhoto block.

first, create a new file attribute (just a text attribute), and give it a handle of proPhoto_linkURL, and you can give it a name like "Image Link URL"

then go through each of the images and type a a URL for that attribute

let me know if you have any issues with that

Thanks - Tony

Hi Tony. I found this reply whilst I was looking to do something similar.

When I mouseover the filmstrip I can see the URL i've set in the way you explained above, but when I click it, it doesn't head to the URL given

I assumed it would work that, click on the image in the filmstrip, and it would display the larger version, click on the larger version and it would go to the page linked by the attribute.

It's probably me and I'm missing something simple, but I'd be very grateful if you could help out?

http://teddysphotos.co.uk is the site I am using and the block is on the first page.

Thanks in advance

Mike

Just a bit more info, if I right click the picture in the film strip, and open in a new tab, the link works, so I'm sure it's something stupid I've done.

Only the picture of the barge works if you look at this message at the moment, I'll fix all the other links now.

right now the prophoto block is just set up to link to the details page with the smaller "details" link, but yeah, the large image should be clickable too. i'll try to make this change to the package for you on monday if you send me a reminder.

ok TeddyBare, update that block with the new version I just uploaded, and the large image should now also take you to that detail page.

Hi again

Yes indeed you've fixed it perfectly and now it does just what I want!

Now I just have to sort through the rest of my 35k photos and get some of them uploaded, got anything to help with that? :)

Ok, I followed these steps you provided the other guy:

1. create a new file attribute (just a text attribute), and give it a handle of proPhoto_linkURL, and you can give it a name like "Image Link URL"

2. assign each of the images a URL for that attribute

I'm still having no success..

Edit the block, and on the interface tab, set the "enlarge mode" option to "page link". You had it set to "none", which disables the link.
