Hi,

you can add a link to Content on e.g. on category name -go to List (or Item if you are using blog template) tab and click on button 2 (Link&Typography). Now you can add link to Content->View to see items in this category or link to your List/Search articles list type.

Hi. Thank you for answer.. But i already know how to apply link to field and do more advanced think with seblod. Maybe my question was no clear enought.
I will try one more time.

I have very typical structure on my site:

Category 1 ( standart seblod content type "category")
--article 1-1 (
--article 1-2
Category 2 ( standart seblod content type "category")
--article 2-1
--article 2-2

I have two search types:
Searchtype 1 - list categories ( have just one filed in search tab - "CCK" with live value as "category")
Searchtype 2 - list articles
And i want to get link from this list to another wich will list articles from specific category ( if i click on category 1 title i will go to page with list of articles from category 1).


Klas, about your answer:

If i apply Content->View link on some fied in frirst list i get link lype
index.php?option=com_content&view=category&id=27&Itemid=101
This link work only if i switch off SEF in general settings and dont work if i switch ON (i get 404 error).

If i apply List/Search link i get link just to list type with all articles from all categories.
If i apply List/Search link type on cat_id field in first list and in setting of link i set field as custom and set art_catid i get link like
index.php?option=com_cck&view=list&search=components_list&task=search&Itemid=119&art_catid=27
In second seach type i add article category field and set live value to varieble and set art_catid.
In this way i get it work.. but no SEF.

So the question is the same:
How can i get SEF link from categories list to list of articles from specific category?
Maybe i have to use live plugin to catch value

Hi,

you basically need to do 3 things

  1. Link your category name to list&search type using button 2 on the right
  2. Pass id as catid to the link, see attached tutorial
  3. Use passed caid value as live value in the search type

Hello everybody. 

I've added new text field to Admin form and Content views of my content type. Then, for this field I've choosed Link + Custom. In Construction form-text I've written alias of menu item that i need. It works. But I don't understand how to automize process of substitution alias of menu item that belongs to article catid. Where to put value of art_catid?
