Adding links to box titles

Question

Posted · Report post

Hey, is there any easy way to add links to titles of the boxes? I mean a way of adding a simple setting do the Admin UI? I know there is a way of manually adding link into the title by using "a href" html tags, however I need to include something easier so even dumb editors from our company can add links without messing it all :-) Thanks a lot Juraj

Do you know how to create shortcodes? This may be an elegant solution for your users.

It sounds silly, but it might be as easy as giving them a reference text file with: `

TITLE/HEADER-HERE

` with an instruction or two. If everyone is comfortable with shortcodes, Adam my have a more juicy solution for you. But, remember you'll still need to explain the shortcode to others anyways. Thanks, Bryan

I've read some howtos related to your suggestion however I miss the point. My users would enter `Example Title` instead of `Example Title`. What is the difference? Or maybe you can provide an example to explain better? Thanks

Perhaps you are right. Shortcodes can really clear things up that are a bit complicated, but in this case it's equally as hard to understand. Did you search the wordpress forums on adding a custom field for this as you stated earlier as a possibility. What was the resource you used?

I like the best your suggestion to use custom fields for adding a link to box titles. However, I've found out that it's not that easy to use Custom Fields in Custom Post Types... http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Custom_Fields Any ideas how to proceed?
