I know some widgets have that functionality but I know of no way to link any old widget title. Curious to see if someone has an idea.

you would have to edit the plugin's code and put in the link.

I wonder if you could write a plugin that would look for a shortcode, like
[widget-link title='widget title' link='http://domain.com/page']
and apply it correctly.

got it halfway there.

I swapped the functions.php register sidebar with

'name'=>'Right Sidebar',
'before_widget' => '<div id="%1$s" class="widget %2$s">',
'after_widget' => '</div>',
'before_title' => '<div class="widget-title"><a href="./link"><h3>',
'after_title' => '</h3></a></div>',

But I have to figure out how to make the links dynamic or specific for each widget. Right now they're all linking to


Got any suggestions, anyone?

Wordpress 3.4.1, Atahualpa 3.7.7
Would the widget's ID help?

I think so. I'm still trying to grapple my mind around the whole dynamic_sidebar_params wordpress thing. I'm not sure if I'd need to list each widget currently in my right sidebar in the functions.php seperately. I'd just go into each widget and change the "title" to a clickable link but there's 1 with a multiple instance I can't do it with.
