txp:site_url in a hyperlink

Hi.
I’m scratching my head on something which is likely very simple and will no doubt make me feel rather stupid when I know the answer.

I want to link to a given page on a site, in this case a section called contact. I want to link it from an article, and I have this as my article body:

<a href=”<txp:site_url />contact”>Contact form</a>

On a fresh install of 4.4.1 in my development environment, this outputs…well, nothing.

I have had a number of very late nights over the past week or so, and I will admit that 1015am on a Monday is early for me, but I’d appreciate a pointer on this if anyone has ideas. I’d be even more grateful if this saves me from hulksmashing my Dell screen.

Thank you in advance.

Try

==<a href="<txp:site_url />contact">Contact form</a>==

Uli,

What does the double equal marks do? I’ve never seen that before. Is that Textile for something?

Wouldn’t just doing this work, or am I missing something? "Contact":/contact

My understanding is that == escapes Textile formatting.

Ah, thanks. I knew there was something for escaping it, but never really used it before so didn’t know offhand.

Yup, like gaeqwad said. It’s effective, typed quicker than notextile. , not as easy overlooked and deleted as a blank at the beginning of the line and, not least, it looks like a typographical barrier: don’t touch!

Re: txp:site_url in a hyperlink

And therefore on this site (in progress) this tag (1) won’t work in an article:

<txp:adi_link url="http://nl.linkedin.com/in/jochemvos/" ext_link="1" image="1" title="Naar de LinkedIn pagina van Mister Dutch"><img src="http://www.misterdutch.nl/new/design/linkedin-icon.png" class="socialmedia-icon" /></txp:adi_link> <txp:adi_link url="http://facebook.com/vos.joop" ext_link="1" image="1" title="Naar de Facebook pagina van Mister Dutch"><img src="<txp:site_url />design/facebook-icon.png" class="socialmedia-icon" /></txp:adi_link>

this tag (2) does:

==<txp:adi_link url="http://nl.linkedin.com/in/jochemvos/" ext_link="1" image="1" title="Naar de LinkedIn pagina van Mister Dutch"><img src="http://www.misterdutch.nl/new/design/linkedin-icon.png" class="socialmedia-icon" /></txp:adi_link> <txp:adi_link url="http://facebook.com/vos.joop" ext_link="1" image="1" title="Naar de Facebook pagina van Mister Dutch"><img src="<txp:site_url />design/facebook-icon.png" class="socialmedia-icon" /></txp:adi_link>==

and with (1) into a module (a tag):

<txp:output_form form="socialmedia" />

it works too … !?

Why doesn’t <txp:site_url /> work in the first place?

It’s not the TXP tag itself that gets sheltered by escaping it (Added: <txp:site_url /> by itself works in an article), it’s apostrophes/angle brackets. Textile turns straight quotes into curly ones, angle brackets into character entities, and the browsers depend on correct markup.

Why Textile doesn’t change apostrophes in an output_form tag, though, still needs an answer ;)

Edited to add annotation.

rah_replace as a workaround?
