I recently purchased a new domain and I'm trying to update the links on my site to reflect to the new URL, unfortunately this is a nightmare because I have a lot of custom pages created.

I'm going to go through every page and edit the links, but my concern is, "Will I have to do this again if I decide to get a new domain in the future?". I was wondering if there was a Comcode tag that defines the site URL.

For example, the {$SITE_NAME} tag (if that's what they're called) defines the name of your site. I figured it would be something like, {$SITE_URL}, unfortunately it doesn't work. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Yeah. {$BASE_URL}.
However, our preferred way is to use the 'page' Comcode tag instead of the 'url' tag.
e.g:

Code

[page="site:downloads"]downloads[/page]
instead of:

Code

[url="downloads"]http://example.com/site/index.php?page=downloads[/url]

Or you can even do:

Code

[page="_SEARCH:downloads"]downloads[/page]
if you don't want to hard code the zone name.

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.
