Recommended Posts

Please go to Website UI -> Pages -> View Video page -> video_view block template.

Find this:


And change like this:


By default it will create the following link:

<a href="https://google.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://google.com</a>

If you want to remove rel="nofollow", then change the code to this:

In this case you would better use bbcode to have this.

First you need to modify the following file on server filesystem (using FTP client or server File manager):


This file has the following line commented out:

//$bbcode["|\[a *href *=[ '\"]*([^ '\"\]]*)[^]]*](.*)\[/a]|si"] = '<a href="\\1">\\2</a>';

You need to remove the first //:

$bbcode["|\[a *href *=[ '\"]*([^ '\"\]]*)[^]]*](.*)\[/a]|si"] = '<a href="\\1">\\2</a>';

Then in template that you have just changed you need to use bbcode modifier instead of show_links:


And in video description you can specify link like this:

[a href=https://google.com]Download[/a]
