I've finally corrected a long-standing problem here at Macdrifter.com. Prior to last night, linked article titles did not point to the URL for the external article. This has bothered me for awhile but I had some technical limitations keeping me from making the change.
Things change, and this site now does linked articles correctly on the front page and in the RSS feed. I'm not using a WordPress plugin. The linked list behavior is all custom code.1 I'm still tweaking things but it's looking good so far. Dan and Merlin should be a bit happier with my corner of the internet. I know I am.
I'll write more on this later this week. It's a long boring story and I keep dozing off while writing it. ↩
