I want my blog link in the menu to go straight to a certain blog. By default it is:

*:news:type=blog_select*

but the page URL I want it to land on is:

*http://davidlfriend.com/index.php?page=news&type=misc&id=dave-s-blog&blog=1*

I have tried several variations like:

*:news:page=news&type=misc&id=dave-s-blog&blog=1*
*:news&?page=news&type=misc&id=dave-s-blog&blog=1*
*:news&type=misc&id=dave-s-blog&blog=1*
*=misc&id=dave-s-blog&blog=1*
*:news:id=dave-s-blog&blog=1&redirected=1*

but they are not working for me.

What should I do to modify the link address in the menu to go to that particular blog? Thanks, I know this is simple and someone will know exactly what to do...

Why not just put in the URL directly? It's supported :).

Or the page-link would be :news:misc:dave-s-blog:blog=1


Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
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.

Wasn't that easy! Wow, thanks Chris!!
I put in the URL and saved the change. ocPortal stripped it to (as you said) *:news:misc:dave-s-blog:blog=1*
