I am using a component link in the rich text box.I can see the mylinktext at CMS but after publishing the component it shows only 'mylinktext' as a plain text.

I am using 'Render Component Content' and 'Default Component Template Finish Actions' template building blocks in my Dynamic component Template.

When I run template builder it gives me the following output as JSON

   Values: [
 "test Title: <ul><li><a title="mylinktext" xlink:href="tcm:23-32245" xlink:title="mylinktext" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">mylinktext</a></li></ul>]

But it is not showing any link at CDA side..If anyone can help in that..Thanks in advance

  • Check if the target of that link is published - links only show if the target is available. Also - you tagged it as DXA, but you're using custom TBBs?

If the hyperlink is removed in the rendered output, that implies that the link could not be resolved using the CD Linking APIs. See https://github.com/sdl/dxa-web-application-dotnet/blob/master/Sdl.Web.Tridion/Mapping/DefaultRichTextProcessor.cs

Unfortunately, there is no logging for this situation in DXA (yet), but the fact that the HTML anchor tag is suppressed is a tell-tale sign.
