    Force the use of HTTP

    I have a basic textstring which allows people to type in an external link. The problem occurs when they don't put "http://", it breaks the link. How do I force the use of HTTP? Or, if they put HTTP:// leave it out, otherwise put it in for them.

    Thanks,

    <a href="{$ecmLink}" class="downloadLink" target="_blank">
       
    <div class="projectTitle">
           
    <xsl:value-of select="@nodeName"/>
           
    <!-- small attachment icon -->
           
    <div class="downloadIcon"><img src="/images/icons/download.png" /></div>
       
    </div>
    </a>

    Hi Devin,

    Here's what I usually do - you can rewrite the attribute - don't worry, only a single href attribute will be output :-)

    <a href="{$ecmLink}" class="downloadLink" target="_blank">
        <!-- Rewrite the `href` attribute if it doesn't start with 'http' -->
        <xsl:if test="not(starts-with($ecmlink, 'http'))">
            <xsl:attribute name="href"><xsl:value-of select="concat('http://', $ecmlink)" /></xsl:attribute>
        </xsl:if>
        <div class="projectTitle">
            <xsl:value-of select="@nodeName"/>
            <!-- small attachment icon -->
            <div class="downloadIcon"><img src="/images/icons/download.png" /></div>
        </div>
    </a>
