Links to Movie Titles on blog
Hi, I was wondering if someone could help me with this question. I am brand new with this and am starting up a movie blog and want to create a seperate page that lists all the titles that I have reviewed and then have it so the reader could click onto the title and go straight to the review. I know on the old blog I used to review at called Commentary Track, the lady that ran it was able to do that. I have been able to create the seperate page and lists the titles I just don’t know what the next step is so that a person can click onto the titles and bring up the review. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Richard Winters
The blog I need help with is scopophiliamovieblog.com.
Try the archives short code:
Hi, Thank you for your response to my question from yesterday. However, I now have another question in the same area. I read your short code page and was able to create a post archive however, I would like the posts to be in alphabetical order as they are all titles of movies. I know Helen was able to do this at the old movie blog I wrote at, so I know it must be possible. Going off the info at the short code page I tried [archives format=alphabetical] I also tried [archives order=alphabetical] but neither worked. Is there some other formula I need to write, or process in order to get this done. Thanks. Richard Winters
I would like the posts to be in alphabetical order as they are all titles of movies.
I don’t know of any way to do this using the archive shortcodes on a free hosted WordPress.com blog. You can, of course, create your own alphabetical list but it will not automatically update.
I don’t have any problem with creating my own alphabetical list and updating it manually, but the problem there is how can you do it, so that the person can click onto the title and go straight to the review? I know at the old movie blog I used to write at called Commentary Track the lady who ran it was able to create an alphabetical list of all the reviews that had been written there and also allow the reader to click onto the title and go to the review. That used to be a WordPress.com blog.
Presumably every review is in a post, right? Well ever title of every post is a permalink.
Thanks timethief for your help however, I still am a bit confused. Again, I am brand new with this so something that may seem self-explanatory to some is not necessarily that way with me. I read the section about permalinks and I looked at my posts and I see where it is listed underneath the post title, however I still don’t get what steps to do to create an alphabetial list of these titles using this permalink system. I know how to create a new page and all that, but I don’t get how to type in a title and somehow get it to connect to the permalink title, so people can click on it and go to the review. Again maybe it something easy to a seasoned blogger, but if somebody could give me a step-by-step direction to this I would appreaciate it.
The entry I linked to way a reference to back up what I said. Each and every post you publish has a permalinked title. Here is an example:
Stay Hungry (1976)
There is no software feature here you can use to generate such a list. You can create a page that functions as an index and then place the permalinked post titles to your reviews on it manually.
I saw what you did and I am impressed and that was exactly what I was getting at. This is getting more clear to me, but I just want to clarify: in regards to placing the permalinked post titles to my reviews manually, does that mean I can simply copy the permalinked title underneath my post title and then paste it on a new page to create the index and will that do what you just did with the ‘Stay Hungry’ title?
