I am trying to stop images automatically creating a link to themselves.  For instance the following page on my site:

http://www.diyweddingexpert.co.....eme-ideas/

If the top image is clicked, it goes to a seperate wordpress page with just the image on it.  Click that and it goes to just the image itself.

 

I would like their to be no link at all. This happens on one of my other WordPress sites, but it is running an older version of WordPress (2.8.6).

Paul, this linking behavior is the same in both 2.8 and 3.1.  However, it's quite easy to fix.  When you insert an image you see the "Add an Image" dialog.  The Link URL is the location that the image will link to when clicked.  By default it is set to File URL and you'll see that url in the box.  You can select a preset (None, File URL or Post URL) or you can enter the link location manually.  You can also simply delete what is ever in the box.
