How do I make it so when a person clicks on an image, they go to the image page instead of the same preview box opens up? Thank you in advance.—This unsigned comment is by Anno1404 (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

To disable the image popup, add the following to either your personal JS (just for you), or to the MediaWiki:Monaco.js to disable it for all users (providing the other users on your Wiki agree):
window.wgEnableImageLightboxExt = false;
Hope that helps. Cheers, Grunny (talk) 06:22, July 1, 2010 (UTC)
Makeshift Barnstar to you sir! Thank you SO much.
In case someone else references this, monaco MUST be lower case:
MediaWiki:monaco.js
Also each editor can custom edit and suppress the image preview:
So, for example, in my case I added:
window.wgEnableImageLightboxExt = false;
to the newly created, blank page:

Uh monaco.js under your username is lowercase. MediaWiki:Monaco.js doesn't matter since the Monaco.js part is the first part of the article name and is always uppercase. --Pcj (TC) 15:05, July 1, 2010 (UTC)
