Clickthorugh links in blog post grid summary

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.vill.no


I am trying to figure out the following: the landingpage of my website is a blog-page. There is a image block on top, and then the news-posts are placed underneath. Ideally I would like the news section to be a combination of actual blogposts, and just images with clickthrough links to project pages. That means that every time we upload a new project, we could promote it on the landingpage

Is there anyway to do this? I know that it is possible to make a blogpost and add a link inside the blogpost to the project, but I would love it if you don't need the extra clicks. You press "Test nyhet" (both the image and title) and it takes you directly to a link that i can control.

Best regards , Anders Eide

Adding a second thumbnail inbetween a blog summary page and the actual blog post, not easy at all. Adding a link to a certain project page not that hard. Each blog post has a couple of options in settings you might find useful. 

1. Add a text link to any site or page in the post excerpt window.  Choose link from the menu bar.

2 Use the option "source url" Source urls show up at the end of a blog post to provide further reading. Combine that with post title should link to source url and  the thumbnail image in the summary block and post title when clicked will take the viewer  to the source url which can be any url on or off site. The Read more button stll works the same. 

I have posted an example of both options on my site here: https://myrandomviews.com/storysummary

Scroll down the page unil you see the first small thumbnail, with an image of an amusement park. The image and the title of the post both go offsite and there is a link at the bottom of the excerpt too. The Read more button goes to the blog post itself.  I think this is pretty close to what you want to do, just can't get that second thumbnail in the excerpt.
