Redirect from one page to another on same site

  1. I am using the oxygen theme. Using the showcase template, I want that when I click the post name it goes to another page instead of the post page. Any idea how I can do this using the wordpress.com dashboard.

  2. That's not possible. It's also a deceptive linking practice that's not acceptable. Every link ought to direct exactly to where it declares it's linking to and not to any other page.

  3. It will go to the same information.. however the theme doesn't allow you to use the showcase template to link to pages.. only posts.. and I want to use it to link to a page..

  4. That's not possible. Posts and pages are very different. Pages are meant to be used for content that rarely changes. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ Only posts can be displayed in the post slider on the Showcase page template.

  5. Oxygen Theme Description http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/oxygen/ Live demo site http://oxygendemo.wordpress.com/

    In Oxygen you can either have a Home page that displays your posts or a static front page ie. a Showcase template. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/#setting-up-a-static-front-page

    Showcase page template (Note: You can only have one)
    When you first activate Oxygen, you’ll see your posts in a traditional blog format but if you’d like to showcase your content in an online magazine-like fashion, then you can use the Showcase Page template. ...

    Sticky post thumbnails are 750 pixels wide in the featured slider
    Regular post thumbnails are 450 pixels wide

    If you don't see the page attributes module then make sure that you don't have it hidden in your screen options http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/
    Modules to unhide:
    Post – Likes and Shares, Format*, Categories, Tags, Excerpt, Send Trackbacks, Discussion, Comments**, Slug, Author, Revisions, Writing Helper
    Page – Likes and Shares, Page Attributes, Featured Image, Discussion, Comments**, Page Revisions, Slug, Author, Revisions, Writing Helper

    Please be aware that you cannot crop the sticky post thumbnails.
