Which is better for linking to a forum post via Catalogues?

Ok so I would like a Catalogue field to hold a link to a forum post for reference and I am curious should I be using page_link or url as the type? Would there be a benefit of one over the other?

Page-link has a nice selection interface, but for a forum post you'll never find it in there because these are too deep (even a topic is unlikely to work well, I think just recent ones would be in there).

Realistically, you want to use URLs.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thanks! I had pretty much guessed that would be the answer I was looking for confirmation so thank you!
