How to add links to your Gallery Block Images in Squarespace - By Melanie Craft & Company

There are so many awesome things you can do within the Squarespace platform, that will allow you to create several different types of call to actions. One of them that you don't see often, is the one I will be sharing with you today.

Take a look at the video tutorial or read through the written steps how you can add links to your gallery block within the Squarespace platform.

Step 1

First things first, decide where you'll want your gallery block to be. Click the bubble icon on the left and choose your chosen gallery block. I chose the grid option bellow (it's what I've got in my categories in my sidebar as well) to link to other blog posts on my website, However you're more than welcome to choose any other the 4 options.

Step 2

You'll want to make sure you're on the "Upload Media" option, and upload the images you'd like to add to your gallery. I suggest adding all your images in which you want to include, then move on to the next step. 

Step 3

Once your photos have finished loading, you can edit your photo anyway you want by clicking the pencil icon. If you want to keep them the way they are, you can go straight to adding your link. To do so, you'll want to click the little sun Icon on the left side of your photo. A pop up will show, indicating that you'll need to add your image title, text and link.

Step 4

Add your title (because SEO is important for your website!) and include a link to which you want your photo to direct your readers to. I linked my photo to a blog post I shared on the blog a few weeks ago.

Don't forget to click save, otherwise your photos won't link to a different page.

Step 5

Repeat the steps 1 through 4 for the other photos you wish to add. Once you're all done, click "APPLY" and your photos will be all set to go. 

You should have photos that look similar to the following bellow:

And that's it! 

That's all there is to it when it comes to adding links to your gallery block photos.
