Support » Fixing WordPress » Can I make the images on this page link to other pages?

  • Hello,

    I’m probably going to redo my web page shortly so this is no emergency. Someone I can no longer contact created my site. I’ve started hacking my way through it to update some things. I now would like to make it more mobile friendly. As you can see I can click on the title or read more for the excerpts but I’d also like to make the images link to those specific topics. Frankly I’m at a loss where this page is to even edit it. I’ve tried to find it in menus, the theme files, etc. I admit just can’t find it although it may be slapping me in the face.

    I’d also like to have the article topics sorted alphabetically if possible. If you go to the main topics on the menu bar, you’ll see one for BCP, infrastructure and others. https://csdits.com/category/infrastructure/

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi there. Let us start at the beginning. Do you have the login details (Username & Password) for you WordPress website? If you do, then you can log into your site to edit & update pages. Just let me know if you have this and know how to login, then I can assist you with some “how to’s”. Do keep your login details private & do not share them on here.

    Hello,

    I do have the login username and password

    I can edit pages and posts.

    The category page I linked do not show up as pages or posts in WP.

    Thank you for the reply. So I see the page that shows “continuity-planning-bcp” is a page and the read more options do go to posts.

    So do check, when you click on pages and it shows you the list of the pages, on top right or bottom right if the are more of the list on the next page. Should say “1 of …” ? Just select 2 to see the rest of the list or any following numbers.

    This seems simple but it is missed by many. Do the same when viewing posts on the posts page. Your website will have many pages and posts probably and only shows about 20 pages on a list at a time.

    The pages and posts has to be there. If all else fails use the search function that you find on top right of the pages page and do same with the posts page.

    Let me know if this helped finding them.

    Thanks – perhaps I’m not being clear – if you go to the page it gives a list of topics
    Clickin on the title of individual topics or on read more gets you to that topic/post page.

    My goal is to make the PICTURE next to each topic on the listing page I posted above be able to go to the related topic.
    So if you were to go to my site
    Go to continuity planning BCP -show all articles –
    It brings you to a page with a lot of topics.
    The first says security camera systems I’d like you to be able to click on the security camera and it goes to security camera systems.
    The second shows the hand holding a cell phone I’d like for you to be able to click on it and go to system monitoring solutions.

    Thank you for the feedback. If it is setup in a simple way then when selecting edit on the “continuity-planning-bcp” page. You should be able to click on a image of the camera and then see the chain link option to add a URL to link it to a post. If you are able to do this, then you can just add the link(URL) for the camera as https://csdits.com/continuity-planning-bcp/security-camera-system-installation/ for example.

    Just add the appropriate URL’s to the other images you want.

    Is this what you were wanting to do? If it is not setup the simple way just let me know, as you will open that page and not see the images probably if the page is setup differently.

    Thanks – my issue is I cannot seem to track down the name of the page that needs editing or where to look. I’ve tried editing the components of the theme, looked in pages and posts – couldn’t find it. I’m sure it is there but I can’t find it.

    Ok that’s helps me. So your hidden pages should be all these :

    /category/migration/

    /category/servers/

    /category/pcs-pads-phones/

    Anything under the “helpful Tips” menu option

    If you can find any of these pages under pages or posts then you will find Continuity Planning (BCP) Archives – CSDITS there as well.

    If you still can’t find them, look for a plugin that has “category” options or maybe in the theme itself? That then will be how these pages/posts are hidden, as this designer put these specific pages/posts in /category/example, but the rest of the site is straight forward posts. Hope this helps!

    Thanks – I couldn’t find anything in plugins however in widgets it does have categories listed but I don’t seem to be able how to do much with the categories. I couldn’t find anything in the theme either. I’m not saying they aren’t there but I’ve looked 4 times and couldn’t find them so it is beyond my skill level to find them.

    I did find this – https://csdits.com/wp-admin/customize.php?return=%2Fwp-admin%2Fwidgets.php so I’ll see if I can figure out anything based on that. When looking through my theme – on my right hand side even after expanding everything, I don’t see anything called with widgets or categories in the name.

    I did find a customizer.php – no idea if this has any bearing

    
    <?php
    /**
     * csdits Theme Customizer
     *
     * @package csdits
     */
    
    /**
     * Add postMessage support for site title and description for the Theme Customizer.
     *
     * @param WP_Customize_Manager $wp_customize Theme Customizer object.
     */
    function csdits_customize_register( $wp_customize ) {
    	$wp_customize->get_setting( 'blogname' )->transport         = 'postMessage';
    	$wp_customize->get_setting( 'blogdescription' )->transport  = 'postMessage';
    	$wp_customize->get_setting( 'header_textcolor' )->transport = 'postMessage';
    
    	if ( isset( $wp_customize->selective_refresh ) ) {
    		$wp_customize->selective_refresh->add_partial( 'blogname', array(
    			'selector'        => '.site-title a',
    			'render_callback' => 'csdits_customize_partial_blogname',
    		) );
    		$wp_customize->selective_refresh->add_partial( 'blogdescription', array(
    			'selector'        => '.site-description',
    			'render_callback' => 'csdits_customize_partial_blogdescription',
    		) );
    	}
    }
    add_action( 'customize_register', 'csdits_customize_register' );
    
    /**
     * Render the site title for the selective refresh partial.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    function csdits_customize_partial_blogname() {
    	bloginfo( 'name' );
    }
    
    /**
     * Render the site tagline for the selective refresh partial.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    function csdits_customize_partial_blogdescription() {
    	bloginfo( 'description' );
    }
    
    /**
     * Binds JS handlers to make Theme Customizer preview reload changes asynchronously.
     */
    function csdits_customize_preview_js() {
    	wp_enqueue_script( 'csdits-customizer', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/customizer.js', array( 'customize-preview' ), '20151215', true );
    }
    add_action( 'customize_preview_init', 'csdits_customize_preview_js' );

    There is one way left how it is setup then, these pages are generated from your theme. So the only way to edit them would be with the Theme Editor, should be the archives.php file. I don’t recommend editing it. If you post the code here as you did with the above post, then I can take a look at it for you?

    Hello,

    This is the archive.php

    <?php

    /**
    * The template for displaying archive pages
    *
    * @link https://developer.wordpress.org/themes/basics/template-hierarchy/
    *
    * @package csdits
    */

    get_header();
    ?>

    <section class=”container-fluid pagecontent”>
    <!– Content Blogs –>
    <div class=”row”>
    <!– row –>
    <main id=”main” class=”col-md-9 content” role=”main”>

    <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>

    <header class=”page-header”>
    <?php
    the_archive_title(‘<h1 class=”page-title”>’, ‘</h1>’);
    the_archive_description(‘<div class=”archive-description”>’, ‘</div>’);
    ?>
    </header><!– .page-header –>

    <?php
    /* Start the Loop */
    while (have_posts()) :
    the_post();

    /*
    * Include the Post-Type-specific template for the content.
    * If you want to override this in a child theme, then include a file
    * called content-___.php (where ___ is the Post Type name) and that will be used instead.
    */
    get_template_part(‘template-parts/content’, get_post_type());

    endwhile;

    the_posts_navigation();

    else :

    get_template_part(‘template-parts/content’, ‘none’);

    endif;
    ?>

    </main>
    <aside class=”col-md-3 sidebar”>
    <!– Sidebar –>

    </aside>
    </div><!– row end –>
    </section>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>
