Is there a way to link to an uploaded image without displaying it [closed]

+3 votes
I was trying to set up a page with a bunch of images, for a census project someone is working on. I've got the images linked to the profile, but I'd really like to have inline links to particular images that don't display the image (like the [[Somebody-123|Cool Person]] links we use for profiles.) Is there anything like this?

The syntax to create a hyperlink to a Wikitree image page is [[:image:<ImageName>|<LinkDescription>]].  So, in Chase's example above, [[:image:Harris-30850.jpg|1921 Census of Newfoundland, Trout River, St. Barbe. p 20]].  It opens the image's page, which includes the comments/source, not the image directly.

Yes. This is exactly what I was looking for.

For links to website, you just use 1 set of brackets, put the url first, followed by a space, and then the text you want to appear. In your example, I think the following would work:

[ 1921 Census of Newfoundland, Trout River, St. Barbe. p 20]

If you put that in a profile, it should appear/work the same as:

Census of Newfoundland, Trout River, St. Barbe. p 20

Works for me (take the space off the end). But how it displays will depend on the browser and the fle type.  In some cases it might launch a photo viewer app.
That works, but see above for the WikiTree version of the hyperlink.
