Default gallery image closeup link
Example source view code from a gallery htm page as used in Allwebco templates:

<a href="javascript:ViewImage('gallery/Fgallery1-1.jpg')">

Editing the above code to the following will open a new webpage (or a video player application in some browsers) and display your video:

<a href="mymovie.mp4">

<a href="mymovie.mpeg">

Or use the following to link to a PDF file that opens in a new browser window:

<a href="sample.pdf" target="_blank">

You can use target link code to have links open new browser windows.

Linking gallery images to HTML pages
You can link your gallery images to other HTML pages or other gallery HTML pages. Example default code in a gallery .htm page.

<a href="javascript:ViewImage('gallery/Fgallery1-1.jpg')">

...or your template may use the following...

<a href="javascript:popUp('gallery/Fgallery1-1.jpg')">

Edit the above to the following to link to "yourpage.htm":

<a href="yourpage.htm">

You can optionally use target link code for a new browser window:

<a href="yourpage.htm" target="_blank">
