Description

I think, from a user experience perspective, that the title of each frontpage content section should link to it's respective page.

Hey @cbgraphics!

Thanks for the enhancement suggestion!

I think that's a good suggestion, but also maybe too opinionated. Some may see this home page as a "whole" separate page rather than an archive of sorts, linking to different parts. That's the case the theme is built for, and why the pages aren't linked.

Some users may want this and some may not. So it's best to stick to one, and let users modify the theme via a child theme if need be.

In #37974, a more permanent solution is being worked on for this, which may make it into a future version of WordPress. There, the sections become a new whole page, and the individual pages that make up the home page redirect to the home page, instead of going to the page.
