I have a content type "slideshow" with three fields: 1. title 2. image 3. entity reference to nodes of a specific content type.
Then I created a view which I want to display as a slideshow on the frontpage. Its filter is set to the content type "slideshow" and I have three fields there: 1. the entity reference to the nodes (hidden) 2. image 3. title
What I want to achieve is, pass the referenced node from the entity field as a link to the image field so that the image in the slideshow has a link to the node from the entity reference field.
I tried the following:
In 2. image field settings: I checked: Output this field as a link and in the link path I put: [field__slideshow_link_gallery] which I got from the replacement patterns below.
The problem is that the image actually has a link but the link is the name of the referenced node rather than the link to the referenced node. I would need the link not the name.
In the 1. entity reference field in the view I have only three formatters (label, entity id and rendered entity). I used label as a formatter and checked "Link label to the referenced entity. Unfortunately only the name is passed to the image not the link. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
