Field Types



Unique link field

Please note: for Symphony lower than 2.3, use the 1.0-tag

This extension allows you to create a link to an unique URL, for example: when you want to send someone an e-mail with a link which is only valid for 24 hours.

How does it work?

Simply add the field to your section. You can set the following parameters - The link, with 2 parameters: [URL] and [CODE]. So something like [URL]/signup/[CODE]/ would translate to - How many hours the link will be valid (defaults to 24 hours). - Check whether the entry should be deleted as soon as the link is no longer valid.

So how can I use this in my site then?

Simply create a page with a parameter called code (for example) and add a datasource with the unique field link to it.

Next, use some XSL logic. For example, something like this:

    <xsl:when test="$code = my-datasource/entry/link/@code">

        <!-- The code is valid! Show some content, form, etc... -->


        <!-- The code is not valid! Show some error message or something -->
