I would like to add a links to the pictures I am showing in the galleries on my website and can’t seem to find an easy way of doing this. The search option in the primary navigation also doesn’t show any of the images when doing a search. Titles and alt text is good and in theory, should return the image(s)?
Link to the page where I would like to display the titles of each image can be found at http://birding.daveb.co.uk/sitemap/.
Probably missing something simple, but any help will be appreciated.

I’m not too sure what you mean by adding links to your pictures?
Each image you add to your Media Library creates a new “page” for that attachment. If you go into the Media Library and click an image, you’ll see an option to “view” the page.
Those pages should be searchable as well.
Let me know 🙂December 8, 2017 at 12:52 pm #445116David
Many thanks for the quick reply. What I’m after is the images to be searchable and I’m a bit confused as to why they are not being found when using the search option in the menu bar. To give you an example, one of my images is titled Water Pipit at Saltholme and when I search for Water Pipit, it does not bring back the image. You’ll see what I mean if you go to http://www.birding.daveb.co.uk and do a search for Water Pipit.
The links part of my question was if there was a quick way of adding the links to ALL images in my media gallery to the sitemap page using some sort of widget, extension, etc? The main thing for me is to try and make sure the images return in search results.

Perhaps a plugin like this will do the trick? https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/search-everything/December 11, 2017 at 12:26 pm #447195David
That works. Thank you,
