    Hi Everyone
    I've read through this entire forum and tried every idea but none of the ideas solved my problem.

    I want to replace an affiliate link with the words "Click Here"?

    I've tried just about every combination I can think of including the Tag Maker's.

    I'm usually pretty good at figuring things out by reading and experimenting but this one has me stumped and a bit frustrated.

    I know it's something simple!

    Any and all advice welcome.

    Rich

    Is this what you mean?

    <A HREF="[WM-Field: link]" TARGET=_BLANK>Click Here</A></TD>

    Hi Scott
    Thanks for responding. I finally got the answer from Richard. All I needed to do was add the word raw within the link.

    I knew it had to be simple. I never tried the raw attribute because my text file has no HTML in it.

    Who would have thought...

    Thanks again.

    If the field contains a URL, it's raw data that you'll want copied straight over. Normally WebMerge converts some characters to their ISO 8959-1 character entity equivalents, which will make them readable in a browser. But if the data is a URL then converting those will break the link, so the raw attribute is needed to allow the straight unadulterated insertion into the template.
