Hello! Grateful for any help. I've recently connected my SquareSpace blog to a Podia site. I'm trying to make the two sites work together as seamlessly as possible and I would like to make the logo in my SquareSpace site header link to the homepage which is on Podia. I tried the ideas on this archived conversation but they didn't work for me:

That thread has been archived because it is out of date. If you’re using Squarespace version 7.1, please take a look at my recent post here:

Thank you, I wasn't able to find any other threads on this topic. I am using 7.1 which I am not seeing mentioned in this more recent thread you shared? I tried the two codes I saw you shared there and neither worked. I'm trying to link to an external site, so maybe I am making a mistake with how I am typing it? Here is how I tried entering the second code with the external link I would like my logo to link to:

<script>
  /* Desktop branding - redirect to another URL */
  document.querySelector('a.Header-branding').setAttribute('href', 'https://www.tarotandmeditations.com/');
   /* Mobile branding - redirect to another URL */
  document.querySelector('a.Mobile-bar-branding').setAttribute('href', 'https://www.tarotandmeditations.com/');  
</script>

I have added a 7.1 version to that post. Please take another look.

Oh my goodness, thank you!!!! I'll paste the code that worked below here in case anyone finds this thread. Can I ask you additionally if there is a code that will make this and the other items in my navigation open in new windows?

<script>
  /* Desktop branding - redirect to another URL */
  document.querySelector('.header-display-desktop .header-title-logo a').setAttribute('href', '/home');
   /* Mobile branding - redirect to another URL */
  document.querySelector('.header-display-mobile .header-title-logo a').setAttribute('href', '/home');  
</script>

I answered the second question myself from an old thread, lol, put this code below in my header injection and now the navigation links are opening in new tabs.

<base target="_blank"/>

Thank you again, so so much, @paul2009 !!

Hi again @paul2009, I just realized the code you provided is not working on mobile though it works perfectly on desktop. I entered both the desktop and mobile codes just as you share them and added my url in just the same way to each. Any further suggestions appreciated. The site, again, is www.kimberlyessex.com. Thanks!
