this is a pretty basic feature ALREADY AVAILABLE ON THUMBNAIL LAYOUT.
When using the beautiful Masonry or Grid Layout, you can ONLY choose between directly go to URL, or ONLY open Popup.
PROBLEM: But after opening Popup, you CANNOT redirect in any way to URL. That is a shame.
ADD Option to redirect to URL, AFTER opening up Popup. Be it on image click or an extra button.
Please Upvote for the implementation of this basic feature and simple to implement feature.
A happy customer

Original comment from ITM transferred from the previous Wishlist portal:
This feature is absolutely essential on mobile devices! And it seems to no longer be available on the thumbnail layout either. You can only select to open a link on click, or open a popup. The MAJOR problem on mobile is that you cannot pinch zoom the image in neither option. With the link option it just opens the link, and with the popup options it does not allow to zoom anyways, and there is no way to visit a page after seeing the image. A separate URL button, or at least allowing the title and description to go to a URL and the image to be zoomable would be exteremely desirable and helpful.
Thanks a lot for your comment and all the details provided!
I’m sorry that at the moment the Photo Gallery widget lacks this feature. I understand your point regarding mobile devices, and we’ll do our best to consider your idea for our future updates.
Thank you so much for your help and understanding!
