Articles custom field for news source URL (truncated)

Recommended Posts

hi, could you help me on making such a custom field in pages.

that custom field would be for inputting the news source url of the original article that I've posted.

I wish to simply paste the url in the custom field area and I want the output to be shown under the article on the next line with url truncated so only domain name remain for example.

if full url is https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/forum/497-peer-to-peer-technical-support/
then https://invisioncommunity.com/ would be shown, but when you click on the link it would take to the full url https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/forum/497-peer-to-peer-technical-support/

?

For now I made a much simpler version here with a custom display format:

<i><a target="_blank" href="{$value}">Source</a></i>

value being the URL of source article

I used URL but your code did not work, so I changed to text and it worked perfectly! Thank you so much! You are the master of pages after all. 😉

By the way would you know any trick to remove the www. part from the

{$urlhost['host']}

For URL you should to use $formValue

$value return the formatted html

{{if mb_substr($urlhost['host'], 0, 4) === 'www.'}}
	{{$urlhost['host'] = mb_substr($urlhost['host'], 4);}}

Thanks but I'm unsure about $formValue part.

My code now looks like this and it works, yay

I added your change in " Display Custom Format "

{{$urlhost=parse_url($value);}}
{{if mb_substr($urlhost['host'], 0, 4) === 'www.'}}
	{{$urlhost['host'] = mb_substr($urlhost['host'], 4);}}
{{endif}}
<div class="ipsType_richText"><i>{$label}: <a target="_blank" href="{$value}">{$urlhost['host']}</a></i></div>

Add my code after {{$urlhost=parse_url($value);}}

{{$urlhost=parse_url($value);}}
{{if mb_substr($urlhost['host'], 0, 4) === 'www.'}}
	{{$urlhost['host'] = mb_substr($urlhost['host'], 4);}}
{{endif}}
