Template Tag – link



The link tag is used to simplify linking to different views in your forum. For example you can write {link path=”discussions”} inside the href HTML tag instead of the full path.

*NOTE: This tag must have a value associated with it in order function correctly


  • dashboard/settings – links to your dashboard.
  • discussions – links to discussions, the default landing page for your forum.
  • activity – links to the activity field.
  • messages/inbox – links to your inbox.
  • profile – links to your profile page.
  • signinout – will toggle between sign in and sign out.


&lt;li&gt;&lt;a href="{link path="dashboard/settings"}"&gt;Dashboard&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;

This will create a link to your dashboard inside a list element.
