Page Links To

Description

This plugin allows you to make a WordPress page (or post or custom post type) link to a URL of your choosing, instead of its WordPress URL. It also will redirect people who go to the old (or “normal”) URL to the new one you’ve chosen.

Common uses:

Set up navigational links to non-WordPress sections of your site or to off-site resources.
Publish content on other blogs (or other services, like Medium) but have them show up in your WordPress posts stream. All you have to supply is a title and a URL. The post title will link to the content on the other site.
For store operators, you can link to products on other retailer’s sites (maybe with an affiliate code) but have them show up like they’re products in your store.
Create a “pretty URL” for something complicated. Say you have https://example.com/crazy-store-url.cgi?search=productId&sourceJunk=cruft … just create a WordPress page called “My Store” and use Page Links To to point it to the ugly URL. Give people the new URL: https://example.com/my-store/ and it will redirect them!

How do I make it so that a page doesn’t link to anything? I’d like to use it as a dummy container.

Just use “#” as the link. That won’t go anywhere.

Can this be used to repoint categories to an arbitrary URL?

Not currently. Please contact me if you’re interested in that functionality.

My links are sending me to http://myblog.com/site-i-wanted-to-link-to.com … why?

If you want to link to a full URL, you must include the http:// portion.

Can I link to relative URLs for URLs on the same domain?

Yes. Linking to /my-photos.php is a good idea, as it’ll still work if you move your site to a different domain.
