    In the Linen theme, as with others that use the home page slider, you create a sticky post with a featured image and it becomes one of the panels for the slider. PROBLEM I’m having is setting the “Read More” link to the correct destination URL. I’ve tried several times to set the “Link URL” field when going through the steps to set up the featured image for the post but still the Read More click takes me to the sticky post.

    Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.
    To clarify a bit: I want the “Read More” link to take visitors to a different page on my site and not to the sticky post.

    P.S. This is the second attempt at posting in the premium themes forum. My apologies if it’s still landing in the wrong place.

    The blog I need help with is lantostechnologies.wordpress.com.

    Your theme is a premium theme and we Volunteers answering questions on this forum have no knowledge of how they are designed to operate. When you purchased your premium theme what came with that purchase was support directly from the theme designer in the Premium Theme Support Forum. There is a link for the specific Premium Theme support forum under Appearance -> Themes in your blog’s Dashboard, but do note that the premium theme must be active and you must be signed in as the user who purchased it in order to see it.

    For what it’s worth that cannot be done on the other free hosted WordPress.com blogs using free themes and I suspect it can’t be done on your blog wither. Why? Because it’s unethical to have a link that states read more and sneakily redirects to another page rather than to the reminder of the related page it is supposed to be linked to.

    edit: “reminder” was meant to be “remainder”

    I have to disagree with you time thief. I want to link them to content that is related to the image and headline on the home page slider. The featured slider post works in such a way that I cannot HAVE any other content in the post than what appears in the home page slider. At lantostechnologies.wordpress.com when you click on “read more” I want to take visitors to the relevant “markets” sub-page.

    There’s nothing sneaky about giving visitors the content that’s most relevant to the link they click on. That’s just Web Usability 101.

    I am not stating an opinion. I am stating what web standards are all about and how themes are coded to comply with web standards. The “more tag” for splitting content in posts cannot be used in the manner you state. Splitting Content » The More Tag

    Will you please post to the Premium Themes Forum Appearance -> Themes where you can get help from the theme’s designer?

    I share your frustration. I keep following the link to Premium Themes Forum and I get to here.

    The premium theme must be active on the blog and you must be signed in as the user who purchased it in order to see the link to the Premium Themes Forum. If that’s the situation and you still cannot locate it then please contact Staff directly.
