  • How do we add a link within a phrase?

    We would like to add more information to the Terms and Rules when a user registers on the site and add a link within the phrase : Site Terms & Rules

    Adding new text is not a problem, we can do that, but when we add a link it does not work using <a href="link”>link text</a> So how do we add a link? Does it need a different coding type?

    Thanks for any help

    This is what I used which includes a picture as well. Also make sure you have HTML checked if it is one of the options.

      Thanks Montana rover, not sure why it's not working for us, will keep trying. I don't see anything to tick html in phrases.

        No, it won't work for me.

        I've copied the phrase default text to the box and added the extra info and saved. The new text shows but not the link.

          Where is the phrase being used? You cannot add HTML to email phrases as emails are flagged as plain text.

            It's not an email. When someone registers they have to tick a box to say they agree to the terms and conditions. There is a link next to the tick box to read the terms and conditions. It is those terms we want to edit and add a link to a section on the forum which has the more general forum rules.

            The phrase is site_terms_and_rules

              HTML should work there. There are already several HTML blocks in the phrases and it includes links as well. What is the exact tag that you're putting into the phrase and what does the output look like?

                Thanks Wayne. The links that are already in seem to be in curly brackets with a number not html. Sorry not sure of the correct terminology.

                I'm using <a href="link”>link text</a> the link being to a forum post. I'll try again and get the exact output details for you.

                  Morning Wayne. Ignore my comment above about the other links, they are indeed html.


                  What I am trying to add at the bottom of site_terms_and_rules is this:

                  You can find more detailed information about the Small Motorhome Rules by clicking here: <a href="https://community.smallmotorhome.co.uk/forum/forum-and-website-information/forum-rules-website-information/106-forum-rules-help-and-general-information”>Small Motorhome Forum Rules</a>

                  but when you go through the process of registering and click on the 'terms and rules' to read them (next to the tick box) there is no link at the very bottom after "You can find more detailed information about the Small Motorhome Rules by clicking here: "

                    I've worked out the problem.

                    Set your link to be this instead:
                    Code:
                    <a href='https://community.smallmotorhome.co.uk/forum/forum-and-website-information/forum-rules-website-information/106-forum-rules-help-and-general-information'>
                    For simplicity, we are using:
                    '
                    instead of
                    "

                        I'll probably log a bug for this later, as I'm sure this cannot be by design.

                          I know this is an old thread, how do I access the site_terms_and_rules popup to add or modify the text in vBCloud site?

                            Phrases can be accessed via Languages & Phrases -> Phrase Manager in the AdminCP. You can also search for a specific phrase under Languages & Phrases -> Search for Phrases.
