Antville Macros

links and <% link %>

While you always can use normal HTML to create a link (i.e. <a href="">antville</a>), antville provides a special macro called "link". depending on the options you specify, the link-macro will change it's behaviour.

<% link to="" %> will result in

<% link to="" text="antville" %> will show this link: antville.

<% to="topics/polls" text="polls" %> creates a link to polls.

please mind the use of - this simply means that you tell your site to create a link (you can also use <% ...%>). And that again means that everything you specify in the to=...-option will be relative to your site (or your story).

Of course you can also use the link-macro for ftp-, https-, mms- or whatever-links. The only thing that an external URL must contain is ://

And finally, for the lousy ones, antville is able to detect URLs in a story or comment, so when you simply write antville will display

... Comment

urls as plain text

i think we should provide a way to enter a url without antville transforming it into a link...

... Comment
links in new windows

is there the possibility to set a link that opens a new window rather than opening the resource in the current one?

... Link

simply add a target="_blank" parameter to the macro call. but please think of the poor kitten.

... link

... Comment in image

is there something like the 454 for the "linkto" in image makros? I tried "site.linkto" but it didn't work.

how else can i place the correct links for images in my main navigation (see here:

good old static html would of course work, but is it the only possibility?

... Link

Re: in image

i don't know if i understood you correctly, but this might help:

<% image name="myimage" as="url" %>

... link

not what I was looking for, but thank you any way for trying to help. could solve the problem by simply adding a slash before the link, like this:

<% image name="myimage" linkto="/main" %>
who would have thought it would be that easy!

... link

Is it possible to create a link to the root-page of the system or blog only if the user is not already there (in case he/she is already there replace the link with normal text or similar)?
