Clicking a link in a database entry that is not a pagelink opens in the dbase area

Filip Callewaert August 30, 2023

A bit difficult to explain, but a picture stands for many words in this case:

This is a screenshot of a database (Dossier Demo Spar for you) in one entry (Demo Spar for you) of another database.

Zoom out (complete screen):

It has a column "Summary" which provides us with the contents of an excerpt-field of that page. 
Two pages in my Dossier Demo Spar for You database have a url in that excerpt field. When you click that link, it tries to open in the rectangular that is now filled with the dbase view of Dossier Demo Spar for you:

Zoom out: you see the 'mise en abyme', which of course is unexpected behaviour.

The other link (a trellio-board link) ends up in the inability of showing Trello boards in this rectangular:

Zoom out:

Of course, the expected behaviour is that the link opens in a new tab or window, but not in creating a page-view inside the page. 

For the pagelinks in Title-fields, we see normal behaviour: these links open in a new tab.

Thanks for the detailed report! This should be fixed now.

Hi @Candid Dauth  - unfortunately I still see the same erroneous behaviour - I logged out and in (though I do not believe this should make the difference) , and everything still behaves the same way. Or are such things cache-related?

@Candid Dauth

Still erroneous!

@Filip Callewaert So sorry about this, it looks like I tested my fix badly and it only solved the issue in certain situations. I have now created another fix that is under review, hopefully it will be deployed to production tonight or tomorrow.

Further to this, it is not clear to me if here is the right place to post these buggy things. Is it, @Divya Sriram
