Drupal 7 question: In my Events content type, I have a text field called RSVP URL. On the event page, it currently displays as

RSVP URL: http://example.com

However, I would like it to be a link, displaying like so:

RSVP URL: http://example.com

I'm not seeing a way to do this, except perhaps via adding the Link module?, but I'm a newbie who's never even installed a module before, and I'm wondering if there's another built-in way. Thanks.

I feel like the simpliest way to do that will be to install the linke field module directly from the web.

To do so :

  • Go to admin/modules ;
  • Clic on Install new module ;
  • Open a new tab. Paste link module link and go. A page displays with the description of the module ;
  • At the bottom of that page, Copy the link to the file (zip or tar.gz one) which is this one (this one is the zip one) ;
  • Go to the drupal (Install new module) page. Paste that link on the Install from url field and hit Install. Wait 'till it finished in a few seconds ;
  • Clic on Enable newly added.... ;
  • Search for the link field module by scrolling. Clic on install. Wait untill it finished in a few time ;

And you can go back to your content type in order to create that new link field with the wright type.

Does that help ?

  • My apologies for never responding way back when (I was such a newbie back then, and was also afraid of inadvertently revealing how much our team at the moment lacked anybody who could fix things if I did the module installation wrong, let alone worse fragilities the site had then, haha). While I did use the other answer in my case, I appreciated the step-by-step module enabling instructions back then (fortunately these days mostly doing composer+drush in D8), and no doubt your answer was useful to others, including those who didn't want to require their content editors write HTML!

Click on edit in front of your link field in your content type's manage field tab.

You need to change Text processing option to filtered Text.

Then while adding this content type just type the URL with HTML tag.

I hope this solves your problem without installing a module.
