URL Links are not visible


I have added a link as part of one of my databases. I can’t see it, field is blank. It is there though, visible on mouse-over and when I click it goes to page.

It would be good if the url were visible.


@birgli, I submitted a suggestion in November last year (2019) that’s quite similar to yours. Here’s the link to that post: Set mouse-over tooltips for links in Table view to display the link's names instead of their URLs

I just added it the the Public Roadmap. Please go there and vote for it: https://app.startinfinity.com/b/NT8hFqSBqwx/bHXEV8QEJnV/75dd9cfb-5d04-4443-80e5-252adcd03e00


Hi @birgli, thank you for bringing this up.

I have checked with the website you were trying to input in that attribute. The website www.birgli.com does not have a favicon. This is needed for the Infinity app to pull that data from that website. Since there is no image on the website, Infinity is not able to add a visual representation to the field.

And we are also planning to add an option to have a link itself, instead of the favicon. But for now, you would need a favicon to make it visible.

Hope that helps!

@Jovana, I hope in the option that you’re planning, you implement it so that we can assign the links unique names/descriptions, just as we are able to in the Right-Side Panel view.

Please read my description of this on the Public Roadmap: https://app.startinfinity.com/b/NT8hFqSBqwx/bHXEV8QEJnV/75dd9cfb-5d04-4443-80e5-252adcd03e00

Thanks Jovana.

Just having the text url (clickable) would be great. Look forward when it is included.


Just implement a default ganeric favicon as placeholder in case there’s any on the site. I still have this problem even on Nov 2022. Just add this feature, a generic default favicon like this one: https://www.svgrepo.com/show/2867/link.svg

Then if the site has a favicon show that one instead of the default one.

Hi @infinity6 :wave:

Thanks for the suggestion, we are a bit late with the response, but - let me thank you for the suggestion, I’ll forward it to the team and in case the favicon does not work or if the website does not have a favicon - this should be a perfect replacement instead of having a silver box / gray box / empty box standing there.

Thank you :pray:
