How to I change the link in the post title?

  • I want to change the link in the post title. How do I do this? If you forward me a plug-in to use, can you please tell me how to make it work?

    I am finding out that many plug-in’s do not offer support or tell us how to make them work.

    THANKS IN ADVANCE.

  • What do you want to change the link in the post title to?

    I want the link in the blog posting title to go to any link of my chosing.

    ====== The title my blog will go here ========

    Then right below it I want a box that I can put

    ===== http://www.thelinkofmychoicetogohere.com =======

    I see their are some custom field on the bottom of the post.

    Can I do this using this?

    Are you talking about a link to go below the title of your blog site or below the title of an individual post?

    To add a link below your blog title, just add it to the header.php. To add a link below a specific post title, and each link is unique to every post, just add it to the top of the post with it’s own style class to make it look different and start your post content below it.

    If you want a random link or the same link on every post below the title, simply add the link to the index.php or single.php (whichever template file your theme uses to generate a single post) after the title.

    Does that help?

    ON MY FIRST POST:
    When I click on the blog post title right now it goes to:
    http://www.MYSITE.com/index.php/2005/04/24/why-blog

    I want the link to go to here:

    ON MY FOURTH POST:
    When I click on the blog post title right now it goes to:
    http://www.MYSITE.com/index.php/2005/04/24/why-blog-whys

    I want the link to go to here:

    =======

    I want each blog posting link to go to a different link for each post I make. How do I do this?

    I think you are talking about using Permalinks, which, yes, does involve changing the htaccess file.

    What you want is for the title do be a part of the link like this:

    mysite.com/why-blog-whys

    That is controlled through the Permalinks. It sounded like you wanted something else. So the link will go to the same post, you just want the link to “look” different. That’s a Permalink.

    No offense, but you do not want to do this to your blog. The default permalink gives you long lasting use of your post. Even if titles years later are identicle, or even days later, they are unique.

    Why do you want to make this change?

    Sorry for not making my self clearer.

    What I do on my blog is I use the blog post for a summary. Then I create a Page and link the summary to the blog page. This is where I have my Google Adsense ads.

    Right now the link in the blog title goes to a single posting where I have posted the summary. From what you said earlier on this post, I was able to change this in the permanlinks:

    From this:
    /index.php/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

    To this:
    /index.php/%postname%/

    and now when I create a post, it will automatically go to my full page posting.

    ====== QUESTION I STILL NEED TO ANSWER ========

    Is it possible to have the link go to another page of my choice that is not on my blog?

    EXAMPLE: if I put a blog post like this, can I have the link go a different URL that is not on my blog?:

    BLOG POST TITLE: How to I change the link in the post title?
    BLOG LINK COULD GO HERE: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/32348

    I don’t know, but you could of course put the link in the body of the post and go anywhere you wish.
