Project Description

I need some simple enhancements made to the WordPress Gallery functionality that seem pretty simple, but which I have not yet found available anywhere.

I need to post a grid of event sponsors' logos on a page. To make it easy for others to create these, I want to use the built-in WP Gallery to grab these logos from the built-in WP Media library (having uploaded them there) and arrange them in a nice clean grid. So far, the default Gallery tool provide this.

There are two enhancements I need:

1) I need to be able to allow the user to choose to display either the thumbnail or the full image. (Only thumbnail is offered now.)

2) I need to be able to link the logos to external URLs. At present, one can only link to the image file or the attachment page. I need a third option - external URL - which is added to the image file when it is uploaded or edited. The field "Link URL" on an image's set-up page would be where that link would go.

Seems like a simple fix, perhaps with a plugin that will overwrite/complement the existing Gallery tool. What I do not need is other functions, like light-box or flash, or scrolling.

A demo will be needed, one where I can login and try to create such a gallery.
