[resolved] Changing Post Title Permalink to External URL (3 posts)

    Normally new posts are linked to the contents of the post, however I would like to make posts where the title (and featured image) would point to an external URL. Is this possible? Is there a plugin for it perhaps? Please see an example where the links on the frontpage should be pointing to external URLs. Thank you!

    Oh gosh. It could have not been easier using the External Permalinks Redux plugin!

    I even managed to show the post content below the title/image that has the link to an external URL. Just added

    <?php the_content(); ?>

    into the template php.

    I admit that being a Joomla user I find all this quite amusing as it is something very simple and straight forward to achieve there. Probably I am just not really understanding the WordPress system or I just dont know the appropriate plugins to make it more flexible. Anyway works well:)
