How do I link featured image to external link or just disable it?
I am using the portfolio page for showing off my client’s partners. I have the featured image and a description I did in the blog post, along with the partner company’s name linked to the partner company’s webpage. Since the description is only a few words, maybe a full sentence, there’s no need for visitors to see a “full” post (it’s pretty sparse looking because I don’t have much content in there). Ideally the featured image would link to the partner company’s website instead of the post. Disabling it would be fine too. Either way, I know it’s in the portfolio php file, but that’s about as far as I get.
I don’t think there is an easy way to have it link to something external. The portfolio file is setup to show the featured image and the post that its linked to….there aren’t any options available that would allow you to enter an external link.
You could try searching WordPress.org to see if they have a plugin available that will do it.
I’ve found a lot of solutions, actually, but they’re all different and everyone starts arguing over what works and what doesn’t. I commented out the featured image in the portfolio file and went with content only and a linked image. Thanks, though!
