Linking two sites

Is it possible to have a test site I built pideja.ca/tnm integrated as a gallery in a main site I am building pideja.ca?

On the gallery page, there is also a thumbnail/link leading to nowhere, a legacy I suppose. I'm looking to remove it.

Re: Linking two sites

You can always provide menu links to the site. Or text/image links in page copy.

What did you have in mind?

Re: Linking two sites

I'm trying to create my own site. It's about time, I think. Anyway pideja.ca will be the main URL, a portal of sorts.
Since I already have a sub-domain that I use for a client, I'd like it to be an integral part of the main site, as a Gallery. This way, a thumbnail leading to it would appear on the Gallery page.
The structure of the sub-domain is all built and I have a Publisher for both the main and the sub (TNM) sites.
I'm trying to avoid having to rebuild everything, if at all possible.

Re: Linking two sites

I don’t believe that what you’re envisioning is possible.
Galleries are for displaying images and are controlled through Publisher, there’s just no way to change a link in a gallery thumbnail so that it leads to you’re other site.

The best thing I can think of is creating a page that contains links to external sites. This page could be a grid of hyperlinked images with captions, much like an album set.
If I were creating a page like this I’d use the TTG Responsive Grid to lay it out.

Re: Linking two sites

Sobering... I guess I'll have to give this some thought. Not too sure how to use the grid. Probably will re-do everything from scratch.
Back to planning stage.

Thanks Rod

Re: Linking two sites

the grid is great to work with. It's been one of my favorite features of the TTG products for a long time.

Re: Linking two sites

I'll look into it. Then start a new thread when needed.

Re: Linking two sites

for some inspiration, take a look at what Monte Trumbull has done with his home page.
https://www.montetrumbull.com/

For the grid of images at the bottom of the page, he's using html and css of his own making, but the idea is the same.

The TTG Responsive Grid comes ready with its own css and you can add your own styling through custom classes or inline css.

Re: Linking two sites

I used another approach on my home page: I started with the source code and CSS of the thumbnail grid of a gallery and modified them to fit the desired ascetics for my home page.
