[resolved] How do I use the link text feature for emails? (3 posts)

    I wish to display records where the person's name is a link to their email address.

    I created a link-type field. In the Participant Record form, I entered the email address in the (URL) box and the person's name in the Link Text box, yet the email address continues to be displayed instead of the link text.

    I understand an email address is not a URL but is there a way around this?

    Yes, this is just the way it works...if you put an email in the link field, it will make a mailto: link out of it, but it ignores the link text.

    If you want to change this, you can edit participants-database.php, line 1962:

    you'll find:
    $title = $link;

    comment it out so it doesn't assign the $title variable:
    //$title = $link;
