Append url variables

I’m using the RT widget and I’m creating a list that has multiple links on it. I use the built in url selector but I need to append ?letter=_ to the end of each link. I’m using the percussion url button so that the page can be moved and the links won’t be broken.

How can I do this?

Hey Matt,

I would use jQuery to accomplish this. Here’s one method: once you’ve created a managed link using the “Insert / edit link” function, view the link in source mode and manually add a class to the anchor tag, such as class=“letterVar”.

Once that is in place, add this jQuery code to the “Code insert before body close” input field in your page’s meta-data:

  return this.href + '?' + 'letter=_'; <br /> });</script>```   
Now, no matter how often you move the target page around, the link will remain accurate, and “?letter=\_” will be appended to the end of it.

Thanks nathaniel. How would I replace the _ with a letter which happens to be the text of the hyperlink.

Nevermind, I answered my own question. this.text.

Great solution – thanks for sharing.

I would like to add that I think having the ability to add additional URL parameters as part of a hyperlink would be a good idea.
