In the old Blogger interface, when you were creating a post there was a box where you could place a URL that would turn the title into a hyperlink. That box is gone in the new Blogger interface.

I've tried searching the Blogger forums that Google provides but found other people asking the same question, but no answers.

So how can I make the post title a hyperlink in the new Blogger interface?

Posting and self answering because I just spent a while searching for an answer and found a solution, but not one that I like. –  dsolimano Apr 29 '12 at 5:38
    
Are you talking about a custom URL for the post or a click-through link for the title that would've taken a visitor to another site? –  dnbrv Apr 29 '12 at 18:01
    
A click-through on the title - there was an explicit box for it in old Blogger that's not there in new Blogger - e.g. what's done for the post title on codingfortheman.blogspot.com/2012/04/testing-title-links.html. –  dsolimano Apr 29 '12 at 23:18
    
Accepting my answer for now - but if anyone finds a better way, please let me know. –  dsolimano May 2 '12 at 0:53

The option is now back in the new post interface, I noticed that a couple of weeks back: ‘Title Links’ back on Blogger

One way I found to do this is to manually form a hyperlink in the title box. For example, If my title is Example Title, and I want that to link to Wikipedia, I type

<a href="http://www.wikipedia.com">Example Title</a> 

in the title box.

I also placed this answer in the Blogger forum with a pointer to come here - groups.google.com/a/googleproductforums.com/forum/#!searchin/… –  dsolimano Apr 29 '12 at 5:39
