Using custom fields to create links

Postby Cheet » Mon Sep 25, 2006 6:25 am

I want to have a custom field for submit news where the users put the URL of a CD at amazon. Then, when posted it says "Buy in stores now" and the text links to the URL the user submitted. However, that isn't working because I can't put the <'s from <Field: CustomField_name> inside <a href=""></a>

Anyone have any ideas on what I can do to make this work?

Code: Select all
<a href="<Field: CustomField_name>">Some Text Here</a>

works just fine. <Field: CustomField_name> is replaced with the actual value of the field when the style is processed.

Do you have a style where this is not working? Are you using V 1.24?

Post the style you are having problems with here. (at least the relevant section)
