    When I publish a post which is a short description of some external article I want my "more" and the post title link to point to that EXTERNAL article, not to the single.php site on my blog.

    Is that posiible with WordPress or any plugins?

    You can just put a link in your post with a destination of the external article:

    <a
    href="http://someothersite.com/archive/joe">
    more...</a>

    Oh come on :)

    Of course I can do it but when it still generates the additional "more" link to the full version of article pointing to single.php while it should point to that external article. Same with the topic link.

    I need some simple plugin/mechanism to make the post "external" and specify the link to which it should point.

    1. For the title you can use the Redirectify plugin from here http://redalt.com/downloads/
    2. For the more tag maybe you can find some ideas here: Customizing_the_Read_More

    Thank you. This is exactly what I wanted. The Redirectify plugin didn't work in my CMS, but I used the code to build my own extension and it works exactly as I wanted it to.

    The link for "Customizing_the_Read_More" above doesn't work. at least not today. the site is giving me a 500 error! Anyone have a link to another site for this same one?

    The codex (aka documentation link) has been a bit flaky the past few days. Try clicking it again -- the outages, while frequent, don't seem to last overly long.

    Continuing the subject.. I created a plugin that displays the number of comments for the posts that redirect to the same blog (e.g. a post linking to a page). I use it intensively on my blogs. Here is the plugin webpage: http://borys.musielak.eu/wordpress/comments_redirect.php

    Perhaps it will be helpful to someone.
