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!

      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).

      The counter next to the icon in the Sharebar extension adds more mess than value for us. 
      Is there an easy way/code to hide the counter? (so that the icons line up closer?)

      Is there an easy CSS fix to change the social media icons in Sharebar so they are colored, not just on hover?

      Regarding the 'global option' mentioned by Simon in this previous post (to turn off the facebook opengraph data if you are using another plugin that provides it) ...where is this option? I don't seem to be able to find it.
      Many thanks in advance.
