Over the years, I’ve had some interesting requests, and one of them was how to link the widget title in WordPress. Out of the box, WordPress really doesn’t give you much leniency except customizing the CSS for your widget title. You can’t make it several different fonts, or get HTML to work.
I’ll go over a trick to allow you to link the widget title. Oh, and this is not a developer tutorial, so code is not necessary.
How To Link the Widget Title in WordPress
Some people like to link widget titles. It could be for a number of reasons, like ‘just because’, or they have a page that shares the same thing as a title.
For this little trick, we’ll be using the Widget Title Links plugin. Sure, the plugin is well over the 2 year mark, but it works, and seems sturdy or secure.
Simply install the plugin, and then go to your widgets section, under Appearance > Widgets, in your WordPress admin area.
Select the text widget and you should get something similar to the following:
Add the link in the field for title link, and if you like, click the checkbox so the link opens in a new window. Once you’re happy with it, click on the save button.
That’s all you have to do. Really simple, right?
