Support » Fixing WordPress » Linking to a post/page from another?

  • This is probably a really stupid question that I should know the answer to but …

    How do I link to another page/post on the same blog? Yes I know that I could write Bla but this mean that the link will stop working if I change domain (yep, it recently happened to me). How can I link in a way that is “domain independent”?

    Hmmm, can I use that directly in a post (from what I understand I can’t)?

    So I should write a simple plugin to do this? Or am I missing something?

    Oh… you want to write this inside a post. Sorry. No you can’t insert PHP using the editor.

    Though I’ve never used them before I think I’d cook up a shortcode to do this if it were me. Maybe there is a default shortcode for the purpose. I’m not sure. At any rate, it should be a simple function to write.

    You can do it by using links like so..




    ..depending where WP is installed.

    Where ID is the ID for the post, this ensures it will work regardless of your permalink settings, because the ?p=ID will always resolve to the correct post..

    Thanks, a small plugin made it work as I wanted.

    Do you mind telling us what the plugin was?

    Ohh, just something that I hacked together myself

    I like this one personally(having just searched)…

    No need to know a post or pages ID. Works in both visual and HTML modes..

    I was going to write a basic one, but there’s no need when a decent one exists.. 🙂

    Or if you want a more simple one, there’s also this.

    The first one doesn’t solve my problem, it generates a full anchor-tag which is what I wanted to avoid, the second on the other hand works more or less the same way as mine.

    But … I’m going to take a closer look at the code for the first one and see if I have the time to take a few ideas from there to improve mine (easier entering the id). Thanks.
