Hi,

in a view I have fields with URL's inside. Is it possible to make them an external link to this URL? For the moment I get the complete single item if I click the link. But that's not what I want to show the visitors.

Many thanks for a hint.

Hey,

let me see if I got you right. You have a field in your CB that contains a link? Is that link enough for it to work?

If I understood you correctly, you can change that by using Item Wrap Code of that element in Content BUilder. Create a link with it. So, for example if the field from my screenshot was a textelement with a link, you could put something like:
<a href="{value}">Link to item</a>

Let me know if this works for you.

Kind regards,
Darko

Hi Darko,

realy it works with the Wrap Code! With target="_blank" in it even in a new window.
But it only works in the list view, not in the single item view. Without the Wrap Code an URL in the field leads to the single item view, where the URL is only text.
And the Text "Link to item" got shown in every item even if the field is empty. In this case the link leads back to the site where my CB view runs. Okay, I can live with that. But maybe there is an option to spare out empty fields from filing in the link.
But anyway many thanks for your help.

Hey,

would you be willing to provide backend access (super user) so I can take a look? Don't give up so easily, we'll do it the proper way :D

You can send the info to darko.cujic@crosstec.org with a reference to this topic and the name of the view, form, or any other info you can think of.

Kind regards,
Darko

Hi Darko,
I saw you've been inside my backend. Could you figure out any solution for my problem?
Thanks
