Linking a blog post title to another page

You can make the title of a blog post a link to an external page. This is a great way to directly reference external content from another site when blogging.

Link a blog post title to another page

To link the title of a blog post to another page:

  1. In the Home Menu, click Pages.
  2. Click the Blog Page containing the post you want to link.
  3. Hover over the post and click Edit, or click the + icon to create a new post.
  4. In the post editor, click the Options tab.
  5. Enter the full URL to link to in the Source URL box. Enter a full URL here, including the http:// or https://. For example, enter http://www.google.com, not .google.com or www.google.com.
  6. Check Post Title should link to Source URL.
  7. Click Save or Save & Publish.

Your blog post title will now link to the Source URL. The post title will also be linked to the source URL in Summary Blocks.

Add a source URL to a blog post without linking it

To add a source URL to the post without linking the title, follow the steps above, but leave Post Title should link to Source URL unchecked. This is useful for attributing another site for your content without directing visitors away from your blog.

For a list of templates that display the source URL on the page, see the next section.
