#136481 Need Portfolio Post titles to link to external URL
Cress Seajar 1 month, 3 weeks ago
Hi – I am trying to use Jupiter X Portfolios to create a short summary of an external news item.
Then I want to show all theses on a page which lists relevant news items – linking out to the URL of the external websites. So the Title (permalink) needs to be an external URL. I am also using the Posts loop from Jupiter X because I want it to be sortable by category.
I tried installing the plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/external-permalinks-redux/
This Plugin is exactly what I need and works allowing me to set an external link BUT only for Posts not Portfolios. Unfortunately, I need to use Posts for a standard Blog. The plugin functionality does not appear on the Portfolio Post edit page.
I tried to use the Posts and put the news items as different categories, or different user, to filter the two different types of article post or news item external link, but it is very messy and I cannot then show either as sortable because the categories are mixed up!
Do you have an ideas please? Thank you in advance.Mohsin Al-Rabieai Support Team 1 month, 3 weeks ago
I don’t think you need any additional plugins to do that. You may use the bundled plugin Jet Engine (install it through Jupiter X -> Control Panel -> Plugins) and use that to add a meta field to your desired post type to store the external link. Then use Jupiter X to create your post type template like this:
Add the meta field as the source of your title link. This way you can create it.
Let me know if you need anything else.
