    How to show record-level data in plain text on index pages??
    I would like my index pages to display record-level data without linking all the data to the corresponding detail page. So far, I can't see how to do it.

    Imagine an index page that displays the name, inventory level and price of various items, each having its own detail page. I may want the item name to link to the detail page... that's fine and good. But what if I DON'T want the inventory or price level to link to the detail page? What if I want that information to simply display as plain text?
    Record
    In short, how can I get an index page to display record-level data without linking that data to a detail page?

    Any and all suggestions would be very, very welcome!

    Try this: [WM-Field: fieldName nolink]

    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.
