Making a Custom URL Link Attribute type for File Manager
How can this be achieved. Has this ever been done? I've looked at Andrew's address example but a URL attribute would be less complicated.
But the hard part is getting that to automatically be used in the slideshow block (or any block that wasn't built with this functionality in mind).
You could create a custom template for the slideshow block where you retrieve this attribute and output it, but this is going to require a little bit of coding.
Shouldn't I be able to simply copy the slideshow block to my root Blocks directory, and edit the view.php file so that it's pulling the custom attribute (I created ink_url as a custom file attribute) and making it link the slideshow image?
My problem is simply not knowing the code or format to grab a custom file attribute and use it to link the image.
Best of luck,
