How to make a Link??

Postby jambi » Wed Mar 28, 2012 7:58 pm

Is there any way to make a link (in memo/review field) to another CATraxx album or Artist? For example, input the text like "Reissue of <ALBUM1>, 2 bonus tracks (originally issued on <ALBUM2>)"?

It is possible to insert a hyperlink, and link to an explorer page:

If the link does not bring up the correct record in the version you have, try this update:

Interesting, I did not know this was possible. Where do I find the catalog number for a particular record in Catraxx?

Silly me, I was thinking it was a special number. Always go for the obvious first.

I hadn't realised the possibilities of this either. I'd always assumed it would be an external URL link or file that would be used. This could be very interesting indeed.
Like jeff was, I'm slightly puzzled by the CatalogNumber. However I haven't experimented with anything yet and maybe it is all quite obvious when I get to grips with it.

Thanks to jambi for raising the subject - asking the right questions is the key to most learning opportunities.

Oh dear, I just know I'm going to burn myself playing with this now.
I'm only just getting to grips with the idea that I can link to an executable, or run an AutoHotKey script from a link here. How much damage can I do with a tool as sharp as this! :shock:

Jambi - I'm now wishing you'd never asked. I was better off in my ignorance. But now that I've eaten the fruit ...

Using "ArtistPerson.xsl?Name=Sarah Brightman" did not work with the original version.
The above update fixes the problem, at least when using Name=.

Another question:

Is it possible to create a link in CATraxx that points to a DVD in CATVids?
