This addon allows communities to configure a category to show up on the Category List but that actually links to a custom URL.
This addon is not fully supported and may not work with all other addons. It is strongly recommended that this is tested thoroughly on staging before being used. See Conflicts below for more information.
To have this plugin enabled, contact your CSM or Vanilla Support.
How it works
Once this addon is enabled, you will see a new option when editing a particular category:
If a valid link is present in this field, instead of acting as a regular category the category will link to that URL.
N.B. You should remove the ‘add’ discussion permission for this category for best UX.
Vanilla has some addons that override the way category links are rendered. These addons generally have conflicting implementations and cannot be enabled at the same time. The addons with this limitation are:
- Category As Link
- HTML Links
You can only have one of these addons enabled at once, so choose the functionality you want most to decide between the addons.
