Making the title of my post a link

  1. I would like the posts I created to be accessed as a link meaning the link text would be the title of the posts.

    Example:
    If I create 2 posts called post 1 is "wordpress is great" and post 2 is "Great WordPress Blog" the I would like to see them as:
    Wordpress is great
    Great WordPress Blog
    And when you click on the link it will show the content of the link. How I go about this?

    The blog I need help with is wiyiyit.com.

  2. All post titles on our blogs are permalinks.
    example: The cost of aid ( By Aljazeera)

  3. The problem is when I click on the title it doesn't take me to the article. It takes me to another page and then I have to clink on the link to open. What I want is when I click on the title to open the article directly from the external link.

  4. The them I am using is NotesIL

  5. Anyone has answer for this?

  6. I don't think there is a way to do it without altering the HTML of your blog itself, and WordPress.com blogs and themes don't allow customization of HTML coding. The only thing that I can suggest is to leave the particular blog post untitled, and then change the body text of the post (the link to the other page) into the "heading 2" category opposed to the "paragraph" category. Your blog's layout should allow the untitled "heading 2" body text to somewhat resemble a title.

    This is not a perfect solution by any means, it will look slightly different from your other posts, but it's the only thing that I can think of without altering the HTML itself. Let me know if this helps you or if you have anymore questions.

  7. Thanks for the suggestion, I will try that. This one of the thing WordPress.com improve.

  8. No.

    The problem you are experiencing is, you're not writing your own articles, you're just linking to articles other people have written on other sites. When someone clicks on your titles, they go to the page for your post. If I'm getting this right, you want them to click on the title for your post and then go to Al Jazeera, or the Guardian, or wherever you took that post from. That is not how our blogs work here. WordPress.com is designed for original blogging, not aggregation. You might try using Asides instead of standard post formats, as those have no titles at all, and you can make the title of the article a live link to the site on which it is hosted.
