Make featured image link to blog post


Adds a function to the function.php file of your current active theme. This function will make the featured image link back to the blog the image was inserted.
This way you do not have to change your themes files and your changes will not be gone after a theme update.

Make sure your theme doesn’t allready have this function. Some themes allready have this function by default.


  • Example of the php code used.


  1. Upload the plug-in files to the \\’/wp-content/plugins/\\’ folder, or install from the WordPress plugin library.
  2. Activate the plug-in from the WordPress plug-in menu.
