I was wondering if I could get some help doing some cross-site linking. I have seen many posts here about this and that. However, I just haven't seen anything about how you begin.

Is there a nice an easy example to see that displays a simple cross-site link?

Any help is appreciated.

    More information about cross-site linking (or linking in general) can be found here on our knowledge base. Example syntax can be found here.

    To summarize, if you are adding the link programmatically, you will use the following syntax:


    Where SITENAME is the name of the site. So, if your site is called, you would use site://

    If you are linking to assets within a Format, it's always best to use the link element as opposed to path, because this element contains the site information which will tell Cascade which site the asset belongs to. Otherwise, Cascade will assume you are attempting to link to an asset within the current site.

    When adding links using a chooser or the WYSIWYG, you will see a site selector at the top of the chooser window, which will allow you to change sites and choose an asset within the desired site.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
