Hello - I have URL custom field setup for Hotspots. Would like to change the a href tag to show specific text rather than the actual URL. For the life of me I cannot find it in the hotspot default file. Guess it is linking somewhere else. Can you please tell me where?

thanks Pete

Hardcoded text? Or dynamic text?

Hey Pete,
I just had a look at the code. in the render function of the fields we do this:
JPATH_SITE . '/templates/' . CompojoomTemplateHelper::getFrontendTemplate() . '/html/' . $component . '/fields/customfields'
Basically we are looking for custom fields definitions in your site tempalte in the html/com_hotspots/fields/customfields folder
if you place the libraries\compojoom\form\customfields\url.php file in there and you do modifications to it. You should get the desired outpout.

The render function looks like this:
	/**
	 * There is no need to translate the value for text fields
	 *
	 * @param   object  $data              - the object with the field value
	 * @param   string  $valueToTranslate  - the value for the field
	 *
	 * @return string
	 */
	public function render($data, $valueToTranslate)
	{
		return '<a href="' . $valueToTranslate . '" target="_blank" ref="nofollow">' . $valueToTranslate . '</a>';
	}

just change $valueToTranslate to something else :)

Regards,
Daniel

Hi Daniel - I made the amendment your suggested and it does change the URL text, but only when on the main Hotspots page where it shows all hotspots. When I click on the hotspot and go into it's own hotspot page, it defaults back to not showing my amendment. Does the hotspot page use another file for this?? thanks Pete

Sure? Cache maybe? This code should be used everywhere.

I thought it was cache too. However, have cleared and completely turned off the site caching and still get the same result. Cleared browser too.
