    Maybe its me but I can't seem to make the custom link function for the image or the post title work. As I understand it if I place a link in there it should then redirect the image link or the posts title to the new link. It does not seem to work for me and i have tried it on a couple different sites.

    I am using the most recent vesions of Genesis and WordPress. Maybe you can direct on how this function is to be used thanks.

    I think you misunderstand. You need to put a custom field name there, then you can specify a different link within your post/page/... with the custom field. This lets each post/page/... have it's own custom link.

    Thanks Nick that makes so much more sense to me now.

    For those that follow on this question.

    You need to create a custom field like featured-widget place the link in the value section of that then in the widget place the name of the custom field where custom link is at and your good to go.

    I have been using another workaround.
    This works with Yoast's WordPress SEO plugin.
    In the post which you are using with the widget, you can set the canonical and 301 redirect URLs in the on-page WordPress SEO panel.
    I set both of these URLs to the content page I want people to see instead.
