Variables in H1 topic titles don't show up in links

Postby caroline on Thu Mar 16, 2017 4:55 pm

Hello. I hope this isn't a really dumb question.

When I have to use a variable in a H1/topic title, the variable does not show up in links I create that go to that topic. I've been typing the variable into every new link I create that's supposed to have one, but that seems silly. Is there some way to fix this so variables appear in links on their own?

I'm surprised I can't find anything on this in the help or the forum. Maybe I'm missing something obvious. Can anyone help?

The only "dumb" question is the one not asked! :)

Are you talking about in the source files or in the generated output files?

If in the source files, that's just how Flare works. The XML Editor doesn't "know" how the variables will resolve in generated output.

Well, the question was kinda dumb, because I was thinking only about source files, not output. Now that I realize the conditions show up in the output, I guess I can relax about not seeing them in links in the source files. Thank you, Nita! :)
