No, that is illegal and causes errors in the renderd HTML.

Thank you. I try to keep my sites lean and mean and appreciate that it’s not bloated and elegantly integrated. Nice job.

Thanks for this, works great for me, no need to hand code blocks to wrap href’s around divs etc…

Editor content disappeared when I activated this plugin. Deactivating solved my issue.

A very helpful plugin for such a basic feature missing in WordPress…

Very useful and easy to use plugin. Create a container surrounded by an <a> tag. Unfortunately there is no possibility to add the css class to the <a> tag which is applied only to the internal container. The ability to add the Title tag is also missing, but this is also missing in Gutenberg. Improvable. Thanks anyway to the developer for making it and making it available.
