    I have a writer’s portfolio at

    BUT, I’d love to roll something similar into my own subdomain using Publii. I plan to use Mercury as the theme.

    Is it possible to have “Posts” act as direct links to external websites and articles I’ve worked on? So, instead of going to a full post page, it would direct to an external link. In short, I want to create my own version of but using Publii. Is this possible?

    Thanks for the help!

    It is, it requires a few changes in the theme core files and should be based on the post config option where you can define the input for a URL to the external website.

    Thanks Bob! I am not a dev, but will try my best to figure out soon. Appreciate the help.

    I read through the article on PostConfig options. I know basic CSS, but have no idea what code to use to make a clicking on post redirect to an external link. Do you know where I could go to find a code template for this? Thanks for your time!
