If I have field label as Links and type is a node reference link to Page Title. And its displayed like this:

Links: Page Title

How to make the label is the link to the node without showing Page Title like this:



I propose to do so (if you have a module Display Suite):

Go to ../admin/structure/ds/view_modes

Add a view mode: name is "label" and entities: "Node"

Then go to ../admin/structure/types/manage/your-content-type/display and on "Custom display settings" tab check the "Label" mode

Now go to ../admin/structure/types/manage/your-content-type/display/label select "Reset" (ds_reset) Layout, then make visible only the "Read more" and customise it: "Link text" - "See details" for example...

Then on referenced content type select "Rendered entity", and "View mode" - "Label"

    I haven't give Display Suite much of credit, as I blindly prefer sticking to templates files, but this helping! Thanks – Kareem Aug 23 '15 at 15:53

    In our projects, I always use this module, try it for yourself, it is extremely flexible and provides many opportunities. Why are only "custom layouts", "block as field" or other "extra" features. – NikGleb Aug 23 '15 at 18:43

You'll need to alter how it is rendered using a field template file (fieldname.tpl.php).

    Thanks for the tip, I've tried this <a href="<?php print $item ?>"><?php print $label ?></a> but that is seems wrong, any idea? – Kareem Jan 24 '15 at 11:09

    That's a reasonable start, but print $item won't give you the link. Install the Devel module and start by using dpm($item) so it shows you what's in the variable. – Darvanen Jan 26 '15 at 0:43
