The docs say:

The cd_link_conf.xml is the Dynamic Link Resolver configuration file where you can configure optional Publication-specific settings that are used to resolve links.

If I add a node like:

    <Publication Id="36">               
        <Host Domain="www.neil.com" Port="80" Protocol="http" Path="/"/>

My understanding is that any dynamic link resolution using publication Id of "36" will be affected by these settings.

So, in the LINK_INFO table of broker I can see lots of relative urls in the URL column against publication Id 36, e.g. /private-charter/index.html.

What I'm expecting is that when I resolve a link, the Link.Url property will be www.neiltest.com/private-charter/index.html - a combination of the stored Url and the cd_link_conf settings.

As you've probably guessed by the fact I'm asking this question on TSE, I'm not seeing what I think is the expected behaviour.

Can anyone clarify the effects of using cd_link_conf.xml for me?


Came across another post from Will which mentions that it is possible to to see the behaviour I'm expecting. Perhaps there is an error somewhere ...

My bad - this works exactly as I expected .... once Tridion CD API is set up correctly.
