Hi, I'm looking for a way to link a featured image on a post page to another site URL. I know there's probably a lot of info on Wordpress about this, but it seems like the type of thing that would be theme specific.

I should have added I would still like the featured thumbnails to link to the posts, I just want the featured image on the post itself to link to another site. Thanks!

You could disable the featured image on the post, and add your own image into the post content and link it anywhere.

Hi Messer, thanks for the suggestion. That sounds like a reasonable workaround that should definitely be a lot easier than messing with php. I'll give it a shot and report back.
