I desperately need a solution to link image TITLES or show image DESCRIPTIONS.

Here is my page in question... it's still in sandbox mode 🙂  http://www.abba.squarespace.com/gallery 

I hope someone out there can follow this 🙂

I'm using a plugin that allows for image galleries to be used as blocks in 7.1. It uses the 7.0 style galleries when using them as blocks. In other-words, I have access to both so I'm flexible if theres a solution. 

I'm using an external zoom script for my galleries to hover on zoom and click for full screen so I can't use a click through link.

What I'd like to do, is  take the the gallery section of my site, and combine an option to add each item to the cart. The only thing I can think is to find a way to show gallery description with a clickable link, OR use a 7.1 gallery and find a way to make the TITLE a link. 

I know about summaries, but they show only a thumbnail and if you see my site, you'll quickly see why the artwork needs a hirez picture. 

Can someone out there please help!

Gallery description support hmtl, have you try to add an <a> tag to the caption?

Wow this could actually work! I'm wondering how to fix the enormous amount of padding that it's adding below the image...

.gallery-caption-grid-simple, .gallery-caption-grid-strips, .gallery-caption-grid-masonry {
  padding: 0;
  padding-left: 0.5em;
}

Btw, your implement with zoom scroll is impressed, did it support pinch zoom on mobile?

Thanks! It sure does! Now technically couldn't I target the 7.0 style galleries at the top of the page and give some sort of CSS command to show meta data under the title? This HTML is a GREAT solution for the 7.1 style gallery, but I like the 7.0 style galleries at the top of the page because they fit under tabs that I have created. Either way you've helped me so much! Thank you for the kind words!

interesting - not sure if that will work or not. I'm trying to get a 7.1 template to have links when images open in lightbox. When I just put in a href links it doesn't transfer to the lightbox.

Lightbox and clickthrough url not work together, you may need to put the url inside the description
