Link List

Recommended Posts

rene86

Hello,

is there any module to add URL Links to a Link list.

 

I would like to sort all Genealogy Links:

historic Photos

Gravestoens

etc.

 

 

Basically having one Section called "Genealogy Lists". When this opens there is a dynamic list of all URLs entered, including descriptions, type, etc.

 

 

thanks!

Merv, I can't open that link.

Can you tell me, how I can create a custom media type?

All Media would be cool, just replacing the media thumb.

 

I want to have a way to display the following fields:

NAME
URL

Description

 

e.g. take this link:

 

http://www.odessa3.org/

Here I want to add the complete Name plus a short description for my fellow family members to have a place with all valid links. A Dropdown would be cool to choose a type like: addressbooks, church records, grave records, software, etc.

Hi, Your All Media Page has all these items. You can also specify the Media Collection in the Media Dropdown list.

Hi, If those files are staying where they currently are, you can add the URL instead of uploading a file to your TNG site.

that are no files, just links.

 

ancestry.com has no files to link to.

 

I just want an area to have all links placed with a discription

You could create your own User Page like I did with my Research Resources page

Thank you Ken,

that looks pretty much like what I need.

 

However those are html coded and not dynamic right?

 

Thanks Rene

Rene,

Yes, it is an html coded page and not dynamic?  Why would it need to be dynamic?

Hey Ken,

well I would love dynamic code, because I would simply import a banch of links that are useful and everybody can help categorize it.

 

You you provide me with the html code for your recources page?

 

thank you!
