    I have a list called Events Calendar. On this list I am posting a lot of 'Events'. I have a column called 'Register'. Two things I need help in.
    1. The 'Register' link text is not showing. How do I get it to show.
    2. How do I get this link to re-direct to my 'Registration Form'. I have a basic registration form that has to be filled out for all 'Events'.

    Date format: check your element settings (List format).

    Register column:
    Which element type are use using, which settings?

    Register column:
    I am using a 'link' plugin and I want the link to send users to the 'Registration From'. In addition to it now showing, how do I get the link for the other form I created?

    You were right about the Date Format. That problem is solved.

    So what I need now is
    1. Get the label for the 'link' element to show
    2. Hyperlink it to my 'Registration' form
    I specified both the Default label and a label. At the moment the url is 'gmail.com'. The character width is 9. I don't what else to do to get this link to show.

    Very very strange behaviour, all I did was add another element, a drop down and now my link element text is showing. So it's just one matter to solve. How do I link it to my 'Registration' form? I created a form, how do I get the link for this form so that I can send users here to register?

    So my link text is showing and that's great. But I don't know how to get the link for a registration form I created. How do I link the text to that form?

    What site / form is this?

    And what form are you trying to link to?

    This is the site:
    http://www.knoxttdot.com/ttcycling/index.php#

    Clicking the 'Events' tab takes you to the a list. This list is called 'List of Events'. The purpose of this list is to simply list out the events for the year. It has a column called called, 'Register'. This column holds the linked text called 'Register'. I have a generic registration form and I want this 'Register' link to take you to this registration form. Of course in Fabrik everything starts with a list so the screenshot shows the lists.

    In the end, 2 lists, one captures all the events for the year and the other one allows users to register for the event. In time I will add more events but there will always be only one Registration Form.

    Feel free to recommend a better way of what I am trying to do.

    You might want to use the Link list plugin.

    So is your question what the URL to a Fabrik form should be?

    index.php?option=com_fabrik&view=form&formid=123

    Replace 123 with your numeric form ID. Add &Itemid=234 (replace with actual menu item id) if you want the link to be tied to a menu item.

    If you ever aren't sure, just go and add a Fabrik component menu link to whatever you want to link to. That'll show you what the URL is.

    I have been using a plugin type 'link'. I downloaded and installed the,
    list - Link 3.6
    from the download area. I am not seeing anything different to what was there before. The attached screenshot shows my options for Plugins. Is the 'link' the same thing you are referring to?

    The list link plugin is a list plugin, not an element plugin. It let's you add a button that acts as a link.
