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 with the post you want to link.
  3. Hover over the post and click Edit. If your site is on version 7.1, click the-gear-icon in the top-right corner after clicking Edit.
  4. In the post settings, click the Options tab.
  5. Enter the full URL to link to in the Source URL field, including http:// or https://.
  6. Check Post Title should link to Source URL.
  7. Click Save, Save & Publish, or Apply.

  1. Tap Pages, then tap the Blog Page with the post you want to link.
  2. Tap the post, then tap the ... or the-gear-icon in the top right corner.
  3. Tap Source URL.
  4. Enter the full URL to link to, including the http:// or https://.
  5. Tap Post Settings to go back, then switch on the Link Title to Source URL toggle.
  6. Tap Save.

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.

Source URL display

Options for displaying the source URL on your blog post depend on your site's version.

The source URL doesn't display. Titles of blog posts linking to a source URL display an arrow on the Blog landing page. Clicking the title or Read More link takes you to the source link, and clicking the post thumbnail image takes you to the post. 

Some templates display the source URL on the page or add an arrow to titles linked to a source URL. For example, here's how posts with a title linked to a source look in Galapagos:

Add a source URL to a blog post without linking it

Some templates only display the source URL if the post title doesn't link to it. To do this, 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.
