Link Post Type

Description

Allows custom “link” post type which adds a Link URL value custom meta box to the post editor

This allows the posts to be easily redirected to the value of that link. (This will involve a small amount of code in the template used to display posts)

The main idea behind this is that you can easily build up a collection of links which you can tag with various key words.

From this you can quickly set up something in your templates/theme of choice to display related links on your blog posts or other pages along with a thumbnail without the need to type in the same links on all the pages

Note: This plugin does not do the redirect for you, you will have to do that within your chosen template

Instructions

Click “Links” just below “Posts” in the right hand side admin panel and create a new post, then give it a title, featured image and a link url value.

In your preferred method of displaying a list of links on the site, simply pull in the 3 attributes mentioned above to easily construct a link which you can customise with an image or different title, or change entirely.

Installation

Upload the link-post-type folder to the wp-content/plugins directory
