{{store url="catalog/product/view" id="7884"}} to get

http://mydomain/shop1/producturl or

http://mydomain/shop2/producturl in case in which shop I am currently.

Re: how to link in product text to other product?

Thank you, my failure.

 

But its still not working.

 

When I put this in the backend product description editor link field:

{{store url="catalog/product/view" id="57"}}

and save it, when I look at the frontend I get:

https://domain/magento/%22catalog/product/view%22/id/%26quot%3B2%26quot%3B/

and when I open the link field in the backend again I see this link:

https://domain/magento/admin_l0xz3j/cms/wysiwyg/directive/___directive/e3tzdG9yZSB1cmw9ImNhdGFsb2cvcHJvZHVjdC92aWV3IiBpZD0iMiJ9fQ%2C%2C/key/01218fbb982a432aea7e31d1a4e5a0e8720d2f1194b810d2bac7c6af3455d872

 

But... I cant use the ids, because I cant change them and they are others like in the old shop, is there a way to link to the sku? Or find/search product by the sku?

Re: how to link in product text to other product?

1. General link type problem:

When I disable the editor, I can see the correct link, only in the Editor link window a wrong Link is displayed... not nice but ok... link is saved correctly.

 

But the problem ist still there, that it don´t work and I get this postet, wrong frontend link output.

 

Can you help me please? New installed 2.3.4 Community Edition without any extensions etc.

2. Link to sku?

Is it possible to link to a product by his sku and not the id? Or at least a search Link? But also with this store type so that I have 1 link but if I am in store1 it links there and if I am in store 2 it links there.

1: I see the problem:

Correct href Tag ist <a href="abc"> and this is what I used but this wont work, it must be <a href='abc'>. Also not nice (why is this?)... but so it works!

 

2: still open question: How can I link to a product with sku and not id? with same cross-store linktype

Re: how to link in product text to other product?

1 is still not solved:

When saving with the ' quotes it worked, but next time I open the product there are the " quotes instead and when I save again (only editing a other place in the product text) the link is destroyed and does no more work. This is really bad.

 

Please help.
