Hello,

In the file: getcatexamples.txt, there is this code:

<!– Electronics: Featured Categories Left Block –>
<a href="{{store direct_url=”electronics/phone-accessories.html”}}">
<img class="fade-on-hover" src="{{media_url=”wysiwyg/demo/infortis/ultimo/menu/02.jpg”}}" alt="Sample custom content of the category block" />
</a>
<br/>
<h3>Featured Category</h3>
<p>This is a custom block ready to display any content. You can add blocks to any category in the catalog…</p>
<a href="{{store direct_url=”electronics/phone-accessories.html”}}" class="go" style="font-weight: bold;">View Category</a>

I can’t get those links to work at all, it just keeps going back to the home page. Someone else has also reported this problem under the tutorial guide. Any ideas, why it won’t work?

Sam.

Hey Sam,

How unusual, I have pasted Matt the link and asked him to take a look for you.

Howdy Sam,

Thats right, those links won’t work.

Where it says this:

{{store direct_url=’electronics/phone-accessories.html’}}

You’ll need to change the url to a URL is right for your website.

So for example on our test site here http://guides.understandinge.com/setup/ we have a page with this URL “mens.html” so if we wanted that linked we would use:

{{store direct_url=’mens.html’}}

PS.

Don’t used the code examples above,m the forums have added odd quotes and they won’t work in the template files, use the original download from the lesson.

OK, finally figured it out.

I still had to add .html on the end of my linked page, even though I have set my pages up to exclude the .html.

Weird, but it works now.
