Straight Links plus Permalink button next to post

Recommended Posts


Hello and thank you for your help with these questions.


I have two questions, but they are tied to one another so I decided to post them together.


I would like to replicate the way the following website has set up their posts:




1. Straight Link to 3rd party sites - As you can see, if they are linking to a 3rd party article, they credit the article and when you click on the post title it takes you straight to an outside website [straight link], and not to the loopinsight.com post permalink.  


I would like to set up my posts this way.  If I am writing my own content post, when visitors click on the title they should be taken to the post's permalink.  However, if I am linking to a 3rd party site post that I found interesting, when visitors click the title it should take them straight to that 3rd party site.



2. Permalink Button - I would like to recreate the little loop besides every post [with my own button of course].  This little loop button takes you the post's permalink [http://www.loopinsight.com/...].  


I would like to display a corresponding "Permalink" button next to each of my posts.




Thank you so much for your help.

1. By default the Wordpress loop will only link to internal posts, if you wish to have your post titles link to an external source, you will need to ask this question on the Wordpress forums.


2. To recreate the anchor icon that appears next to your posts title, will require custom CSS.


Read this post, should assist you - http://www.codeitpretty.com/2013/04/add-icon-to-blog-post-titles-with-css.html


However, please be aware that the code provided may not actually work and you will need to use your browser inspection tools to find the correct classes.

Please search our forums, before posting!

Thank you very much for your reply to both of my questions, and for the link to how I can create the anchor icon.

I will follow up on question #1 on the WordPress forum. 


Have a great day!

      I'm trying to add a Careers page to a site to display job openings. The plan is to create a Post using a subcategory 'Careers' and then display those on the page. All of the post sections in PL seem to include images and there's no obvious way to remove them or include an excerpt from the post. 
      Any suggestions?

      Recently I noticed that the Social Share count were reset to zero across several sites I manage.   Some had very high numbers that some clients liked to see.   Can this be refreshed to get the old counts back?

      After changing protocol http to https I have lost all count information next to the icon in the Sharebar extension. All counts is set to zero. Is there any chance to give number of sharing take back?

      Of all the Items that is on Pagelines Shortcode, the Signup on the Settings page is the biggest miss, can anybody tell me how i can add the Signup Shortcode on a link my footer so that users can subscribe to my blog directly or better still to create the shortcode myself if thats possible, but instead of adding a new button somewhere down, i think its better to add the Signup shortcode to an existing link, Thanks

      Hi Pagelines team and wider community,
      I am looking to develop a single post page for my blog. I have read over an old article on the subject, however the link provided on achieving this goal was giving me security warnings. Is there any way I can get round this?
      Secondly, I have had a root around the .zip file provided on my sites backup, however was unable to locate any file in there with the name of Single.php. Does this file exist in the Pagelines theme?
      By the way, this is the unsafe article: http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/create-a-custom-page-template/ (Click at your peril).
