In the below I need the field {link_rhs} to display a link to any page or entry on the website. Previously we were using StructureFrame which was perfect for displaying pages, but it doesn't display all entries. Do I need the {link_rhs} field to also be a Playa field? How can a Playa field work within a Playa field? Or maybe another option?

{exp:playa:parents channel="rhs_cta" dynamic="off" entry_id='{embed:entry_id}'}
<article class="post">
        <a href="{link_rhs}">
            <img src="{thumbnail_image_rhs}" alt="{title}">
        {if ribbon_title}<span class="green">{ribbon_title}</span>{/if}

    <div class="text">
        <h2><a href="{link_rhs}">{title}</a></h2>
    <hr class="desktop-version">
{if no_parents}

Sure, {link_rhs} can be a Playa field, and can be displayed inside of the playa:parents loop. Just use the standard fieldtype tag pair.

<a href="{comment_url_title_auto_path}">
    <img src="{thumbnail_image_rhs}" alt="{title}">

I use comment_url_title_auto_path here in case you're allowing entries from multiple channels )and hnce multiple URL structures) to be selected in the Playa field.

  • Wow, I didn't think a tag pair would work inside another like that, especially considering it's inside a Playa field. One problem, that URL is linking to the correct page URL but not the site URL... it's missing its parent page. Any suggestions? Dec 4, 2013 at 13:07
  • Yeah, playa:parents is just an extended channel:entries class, with a modified query, so if it works in channel:entries, it should work in playa:parents. Re: URL - make sure your value for Comment Page URL is correct in each channel's Path settings. Dec 4, 2013 at 13:13
  • The URL was incorrect in settings. Thank you very much your answer and comments! Dec 4, 2013 at 13:25
