retrieve url from a post to set in a href button

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

i hope someone here can help me.

i use worpdress, and i need to get a url from a post to set into href button dynamically.

i don't know if i can achieve this only with html or mixed with some php or js

let me explain it further:

i have a listing site which shows every listing in a grid style. the grid elements are clickable which redirects to the single listing post.

but i added a button under each grid element, the href url is not known in advance, how can i retrieve that permalink for each single listing page to dynamically populate the href in a html button?


for now i have icon with empty href

<a href="#">[27-icon icon="fa fa-arrow-alt-circle-right"]</a>

i was reading wordpress codex

and there are php functions like:

<?php get_post_permalink( $id, $leavename, $sample ); ?>

get_permalink( int|WP_Post $post, bool $leavename = false )

get_post_class( string|string[] $class = '', int|WP_Post $post_id = null )

i'm not a developer, but i understand a bit what i'm reading in the php code, if i understand it good i could use css class maybe to point to the grid element and then use get function to auto retrieve the url of a post and populate my button href ???

or is there another easy way ?

If someone could explain me how to do this as i'm sure its used a lot on websites.


Thanks to help me
