I have a request to strip all ./index.html in DXA 1.7 .NET rich text field for component links. Is there an option to do this easily?

Should I extend RichText class?

Should I extend content service link resolving?

What is the best practice and how to do it?

  • Please elaborate what you want to strip exactly. Do you mean remove /index.html suffixes from resolved links? Nov 16, 2022 at 12:41
  • no, dxa already removes index.html. i want to additionally remove /. I did it by extending HTML helpers

So for those that are interested in a solution, I did this by creating my own DxaRichText HTML helper extension and doing the change there. Code looks something like this

 public static MvcHtmlString MyDxaRichText(this HtmlHelper htmlHelper, RichText richText)
        if (richText == null)
            return MvcHtmlString.Empty;

        StringBuilder htmlBuilder = new StringBuilder();
        foreach (IRichTextFragment richTextFragment in richText.Fragments)
            EntityModel entityModel = richTextFragment as EntityModel;
            string htmlFragment = (entityModel == null) ? richTextFragment.ToHtml() : htmlHelper.DxaEntity(entityModel).ToString();


and so on. You get the point.
