Can I use a topic title as a link to another site?


(Christian) #1

Hi, I´d like to use hyperlink topic titles so readers read the title, click on it and jump into that site (blog post, news, etc)

Can this be done with Discourse?

Many thanks…

Click on the topic title is the way that you load the topic from the topic list, so I don’t see how you could do that without breaking the basic site functionality.

Or did you have something different in mind?

I think he’s asking for something like this:

Allowing URL redirection via topics or categories is a quite common feature in forums, and could certainly come in handy. Most definitely plugin material though.

It would be quite useful.

Example : www.growthhackers.com

Okay, so you’re basically asking for Reddit-like functionality, with a link and “comments”. Would you like to add in thumbnails while you’re at it?
