Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Tick A query on customizing the byline in config to allow external voting for a permalink

Hi all:

That's a rather convoluted long title.. but I was trying to be descriptive as I could be.

What my situation is with this is as follows: I'm attempting to help a blogger friend put in a piece of code in her byline that will allow people to "vote" for the blogpiece at an external aggregator (as mentioned here)

When I was trying to set this up in the configuration for the Atahualpa 3 theme, it looked to me that it would best fit in the Byline:Homepage section. What I've currently got in there is this:

PHP Code:
Posted by %author% on %date('F j, Y, #a#t g:i a')% | <a class="comment-link" href="http://www.progressivebloggers.ca/vote/<?php the_permalink() ?>"> Recommend this at: <img src="http://www.progressivebloggers.ca/wiki/images/2/21/Progblog_small.png" border="0"></a> |
The problem with this is however that when I scroll over it to click on it to vote for her blogpost, I'm getting this:

HTML Code:
http://www.progressivebloggers.ca/vote/<?php the_permalink() ?>
..which is causing me an error, obviously when I click on it to try and vote for it at the external site. What I need is for that last part to actually point it to the actual permalink... i.e. http://www.progressivebloggers.ca/vo...ut.net/?p=1269

So.. I'd like to know what I actually need to put in there so that Atahualpa knows I'm trying to point it at the specific permalink for each different and new blogpost.

Thanks for any assistance.
