    Is it possible to link to say 100 different pages from a Detail page? For Example:

    Suppose I have a total of 10,000 pages each with unique Title. I need to link to 100 different pages with a first set of 100 Detail Pages and then to other 100 ones from a second set of 100 pages and so on....Is it possible to do this given that I have the actual links in a datafeed (page-title.html, page-title-2.html etc...).

    Almost anything is possible with WebMerge!

    The key (and real work) to creating those multiple links on a detailed page is getting all the information that you need into each record of your datafeed (fields of one record = one detailed page).

    From you description, it sounds like you have already done that with separate feeds for each of the hundred page-titles.

    Now all you need to do is insert 100 WM tags into your detailed template to match each page-title field. It might look something like this:

    <a href="[WM-Field: page-title1]">[WM-Field: page-title1]</a><br>
    <a href="[WM-Field: page-title2]">[WM-Field: page-title2]</a><br>

    The above format assumes that your page-title info includes the full URL (with "http://"). The resulting pages would show the URL and be linked to that page:

    http://page-title1
    http://page-title2

    If you don't what the full URL to appear on the page, then you will need to define two fields per page-title (one for the URL and one for the text that you want to appear.

    Thanks a lot Baertracks that was helpful!

    I have a few more questions. Do you know a fast way to break down 10,000 records on sets of 100 of 100? Also how would you add .html at the end of each title (keyword).

    Thanks!

    Here's one way.
    <a href="[WM-Field: page-title1].html">[WM-Field: page-title1]</a><br>

    Depends what you mean by "break down". There are short cuts within Excel that might help do the job, but I would have to see the data to make a suggestion. You may need a consultant for this aspect.
