Hi Simon

Are you able to supply a basic example of use. I keep getting "Node not found. Please verify your input type or your SiteLanguageList settings". I had assumed that I was meant to override design/standard/templates/content/datatype/view/ezxmltags/link.tpl and use the owurl in there, but $node isn't available?

Hi Brendan,

The ezxmltags/link.tpl is provided by ezoe extension. By default, ezoe sadly doesn't provide $node variables in this templates

In ezxmltags/link.tpl, you can access to $object_id and $node_id variables if you enable this in datatype file :

You can do that :

<b>1. In kernel/datatypes/ezxmltext/handlers/output/ezxhtmlxmloutput.php</b>

In $OutputTags['link'] definition at top of file, replace


'object_id' => false,

'node_id' => false,




'object_id' => 'object_id',

'node_id' => 'node_id',


<b>2. In your link.tpl :</b>


{if first_set($node_id, false())}

{def $url = $node_id|owurl()}

{elseif first_set($object_id, false())}

{def $url = fetch('content', 'object', hash('object_id', $object_id)).main_node|owurl()}


{def $url = $href|ezurl(no,full)}


<a href="{$url}"{if $id} id="{$id}"{/if}{if $title} title="{$title}"{/if}{if $target} target="{$target}"{/if}{if $classification} class="{$classification|wash}"{/if}{if and(is_set( $hreflang ), $hreflang)} hreflang="{$hreflang|wash}"{/if}>{$content}</a>


<b>3. Clear caches</b>

So, if you don't want modify kernel, you can properly override this in an extension :

Thanks Simon,

Presumably overriding templates/content/datatype/view/ezxmltags/link.tpl and adding

{def $node=fetch( 'content', 'node', hash( 'node_path', $href ) )}

to the top would achieve the same thing right?

Maybe it can work !

HI Simon, just some feedback as requested. We used the following in our templates/content/datatype/view/ezxmltags/link.tpl

<code>{def $node=fetch( 'content', 'node', hash( 'node_path', $href ) )}

<a href={if is_object($node)}{$node.node_id|owurl()}{else}{$href|ezurl}{/if}

{if $id} id="{$id}"{/if}

{if $title} title="{$title}"{/if}

{if $target} target="{$target}"{/if}

{if $classification} class="{$classification|wash}"{/if}

{if and(is_set( $hreflang ), $hreflang)} hreflang="{$hreflang|wash}"{/if}>{$content}</a></code>

It appears to work, I have noticed sometimes the node can not be set but this hasn't happened on cross siteaccess links to hasn't been an issue. You could always test and if you feel its suitable perhaps include an override template in your extension.

Hi Brendan,

Thanks for your feedback.

If you want to optimize your template, you can replace

I think about it you did it !

To use as a complement to the language switcher (hmmm, we should rather say siteaccess switcher souldn't we ?)

Additionnaly, I think that an <xxx_vie_gui view=eview siteaccess=asiteaccess node=node> function will also be also a good idea

Keep going forward
