I have a content-type "gallery " which is composed of:

  • Field Image
  • Field Link (which is an EXTERNAL link like www.google.com or http://exemple.org)

so i've created a view with the link field hidden(the widget of the link field is: "Title, as Link (default)") and the image field

how should I rewrite the output of the image field to put the external link into the image?

i've tried with this: <a href="[view_node]">[field_image_1]</a> but this is not working

    If someone is stucked with the same problem: Follow the answer of Gladiator and the widget of the link must be "URL, plain text" otherwise it will not work. Thanks again to Gladiator – LuciferSam Oct 25 '13 at 13:15

Method : 1

  1. Place the link above the image field in the views.
  2. Exclude it from display
  3. Now rewrite the results of the image
  4. a href="[field_link]" image field
  5. This will create the link to the image, so when clicking it will lead the page.

Method :2

  1. Place the link above the image field in the views.
  2. Exclude it from display
  3. Select "output this field as link"
  4. Click the replacement pattern here, and use the link in the text field
  5. This will create the link to the image, so when clicking it will lead the page.

    I am unable to use proper a tag here, but you use them properly in views. – Gladiator Oct 25 '13 at 12:58
