Linked Posts in Ghost


#1

I am trying to figure out how to create linked list type posts, where the post titles link directly to an external site, followed by the post permalink beside the outbound post title; and the content of the post offers commentary on the linked piece ( very much like The Loop Insight, or Daring Fireball.

I am guessing it requires some tweaking how to posts are loaded by the template. Can anyone point me to the right direction? I can really use the help.

I am running the latest version of Ghost locally with bitnami stack, and using the old single column Casper theme with it.

Not really possible natively. The hacky workaround is to repurpose one of the other fields (eg. Twitter Card Title or Desc) as your external URL field and use that instead of {{url}} in your theme
