URL Links are not visible

#1

Hello,

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.

Thanks.!

@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

Thanks.

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.

Best,
Charles
