Home Forums Template Support Imbedding an internal or external url link in an Quix page

    On a Quix page I cannot work out how to get my URL links to work. This is what I have been doing:

    1. Highlight the text that I want as my hyperlink
    2. Click the “link” icon (looks like a chain) and paste the desired url. The url I have chosen is the one the menu item lists.
    3. Save it.

    This is what happens:
    If it is an external link, nothing at all
    If it is an internal link (which is what I am really trying to do), it goes to the same page every time, regardless of the url I have entered. Strangely, since I have been playing with it, the page it goes to changes day to day.
    Is it something to do with how Joomla labels pages and menu items? How can I make it work? It is driving me crazy and I have been trying for a week to fix it.

    Hi Antbee,
    Could you please provide the site address and screenshot issue to check?

    Thanks for your help. I thought I had remedied the error while writing my reply to you, and in fact I *have * fixed some of the problems. I am wondering if the button to add links in QUix doesn’t write very good html. When I was making up my reply to you, I decided to show you where the source code appears to be making an error. I checked the url was identical on the page where the link DOES work and the page where it DOESN’T. The url was the same, but to be sure, I copied the whole section (source code) from the page and pasted it over that section in the page that didn’t work, and lo and behold, those links now work. But this didn’t fix all my problems. Here is a remaining problem.

    I have six boxes at the bottom of a set of pages in the “about” section. I have copied the link source code from the main “about page” (as it seems to work properly every time) and pasted it into the CTO page and the R and D Team page. Now these links work fine in the CTO page but not the R and D Team page. The 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th links are meant to return the user to the about page, but instead take them to the site home page. I can’t work this out, as I used the same source code for each., as far as I can tell, is identical on each of the pages, but where the link takes me is different.

    Actually, now I already have to disagree with myself, as since I typed that 10 minutes ago, the links on the CTO page no longer works properly either. A lot of these links take you back to the home page instead of the linked page. It’s inconsistent so screen shots won’t really help you, and there doesn’t seem to be a way to include a screen shot here. in question so you can see the links I’m referring to. Also, hitting “refresh” while in any of these pages might also return you to the home page and not where you were before you refreshed. It is getting very frustrating as I feel it should be simple and do not understand what I’m doing wrong.
    thanks for your attention!

    Hi AntBee,

    I see all links included in your reply, however some wrong with the link, example about page http://nusite.calxenergetics.com/index.php?option=com_quix&view=page&layout=iframe&tmpl=component&id=10

    Why adding the link view for a page like that? It seems you copied the iframe Quix preview mode and used as linking to special page, right? The correct link for about page should be http://nusite.calxenergetics.com/index.php/about

    I need to check your quix page (R&D) to check the issue linking(boxes) to home page instead about page

    One more, I see you added custom link with IFRAME view, its not good for SEO, you should create menu item then linking the menu item to the page instead copy iframe links and assigned for boxes.

    Let me know more detail which links you wish to assigned for these boxes per page so I can help you check and correct it.

    You can create ticket id https://joomlead.com/ticket-support/ then provide administrator account for us to check.

    Thank you so much! You have found the error! It was indeed because I was using the incorrect url. Is that the url for the Quix page, in this format: http://nusite.calxenergetics.com/index.php?option=com_quix&view=page&layout=iframe&tmpl=component&id=10? I eventually found the correct url for each of the menu items in question, though it is very difficult to find, and I have put the correct url in all links. It is all working properly, thank you!

    “Is that the url for the Quix page, in this format: http://nusite.calxenergetics.com/index.php?option=com_quix&view=page&layout=iframe&tmpl=component&id=10? ”
    If you click on preview button when modify Quix page, Quix will open a preview “iframe” link so you can see the result after editing.
