Ok, so I have a table in my database that I am outputting by using a combination of the data module to bring in a table from my database and the views module so it can be displayed. The page with the view can be seen at http://apollo.tbc.iit.edu/~spaceweather/?q=distribute-data.
I want to enable the column fileSymlink to output as a link.
Below is an example of what the table looks like.
In order to try to enable the links in the last column:
Go to edit view
Click on the column in the fields section that corresponds to that column (i.e., fileSymlink)
- Open the drop down "Rewrite Results"
- Check to enable "Output this field as a link"
There is then a text form I need to fill out and I'm unsure what to put there. The text in the column is the link. For example if someone clicked on the text in the column DownloadData/cases/grid108/297/txt/channel_dataout_2013_297_0100.log, it would take them to apollo.tbc.iit.edu/~spaceweather/DownloadData/cases/grid108/297/txt/channel_dataout_2013_297_0100.log.
Am I doing this correctly, or should I be actually storing the HTML in the columns and having views render HTML instead?
I'm not set on one way of doing this, if there is any better way. Any suggestion is very appreciated.
