This is the sixth in a series of Spanner Wingnut confirmation tests using the Hexo Unit Tests for Themes. This confirms operation of a special provision for a post that establishes a link in its Front Matter.
This test is derived from the hexo-theme-unit-test “Link Post” of 2013-12-24.
Clicking on the title of the post will should open Bing in a new tab or window. Click on the date instead to get to the archive location of the post.
The link specification is in the front-matter.
I don’t see any way to use this.
Since clicking on the title is the standard way to access the single-page of a post, having that link go elsewhere sometimes strikes me as misleading.
It is very subtle that the date links to the single-page of the post. I need to make two posts on the same day and confirm that is actually what happens. It might be useful to provide a finer date stamp. Or maybe simply not worry about it. expanded 2017-12-08
The link apparently has no effect in the RSS. In FeedDemon, the title links to the blog post location. added 2017-12-14
