Add a link above individual blog post title

Recommended Posts

I am trying to make the text "Notes, Queries and Explanations" at the top of the individual blog posts a link back to the home blog page.

The text is currently added using the content attribute and am having trouble working out the javascript. What can I do to make that a link?

Add the following to Blog Settings > Advanced > Page Header Code Injection for the blog page.

<script>

  $( ( ) => {
  
    /*
    
      begin add linked text to blog title
      
      SS Version : 7.0
      Template   : Brine family
      
      */
      
      const text = 'NOTES, QUERIES AND EXPLANATIONS';
      
      const url = '/notes-queries-and-explanations';
      
      // do not change anything below, there be the borg here
      
      $( '<a>' +
      
        text +
        
        '</a>' )
        
        .attr ( 'href', url )
        
        .prependTo ( '.BlogItem-title' );
        
      // end add linked text to blog title
      
    } );
    
  </script>

This is for a v7.0 site using the Brine template family.

You can retarget your CSS from .BlogItem-title:before to .BlogItem-title a and make the minor adjustments needed.

Let us know how it goes.
