A link inside another link

I would like to make a div (post) clickable, and inside it, to have the post name and its category. I would like to be able to click the category also, but when I put the category's link inside the clickable div, the div isn't a link anymore.

Here's the code:

<a href="<?php echo $item['post_name']; ?>" class="news-ticker-link"> <div class="news-ticker-post">

          <div class="news-ticker-post-category">
            <a href="<?php echo $item['post_cat_slug']; ?>"><?php echo $item['post_cat'];?></a>

          <div class="news-ticker-post-title">
            <?php echo $item['post_title']; ?>

          <span style="display:inline-block;">    ·    <span>


How can I do it in order to have 2 links inside a div?

I'd say that what you are trying to do simply isn't possible, and even if it were, it really isn't desirable. For example, how does a user know which link he clicks on?

You could put two divs or a's above each other, or next to each other. Not sure this is the solution you wanted, but it is more functional than what you are trying to achieve.
