    After going thru Franks tutorial and buying webmerge, it was fairly easy to put together a four tiered site. However, what I would like to do in a sense is remove the detail page and have all the subcategory links/thumbnails go directly to the merchant's site. I think I've tried every possible WM tag but can't seem to get this right. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    What exactly is happening?

    It might be useful to review the section on the noLink and raw attributes in the WM Help page on the WM-Field tag.

    I'll check those out again and see if I can figure it out. In short, when viewing the source of the created page, the merchant buyurl is visible and shows an href link like &lt;a href="&lt;a href.... something to that effect. I don't know why it is creating two &lt;a tags, but I'll see if the tutorial can shed some light.
    Thanks

    From the WM Help page on the WM-Field tag:
    ----------------
    Using the nolink attribute
    When used in an index template, by default WebMerge generates all WM-Field tags as links to the corresponding detail page. The optional nolink attribute is used in index pages to tell WebMerge to write the tag without linking it to that detail page. If used in a detail page template, the nolink attribute is ignored.

    Glad to hear that's working well.

    As mentioned in another thread, I found a way to simplify working with nolink tags in an upcoming version, so it'll get even easier going forward.
