Hi

In Event custom field I have a field of type textarea:
<field name="field_address" label="EB_FIELD_ADDRESS" type="editor" default="" rows="10" cols="5" class="eb-extrafield eb-textarea"></field>

If an email address is entered there it does not get <a href="mailto: attached in frontend.

I don't want to allow users to add links by themselves (they can format text only).

Is there a way to automatically link email addresses, for example with some code in an override file? Or is there a setting that I have missed?

Thanks.

Patrick

There is not a config option like that available. If you want to make the email field linked, somehow, you will have to edit code in the file components/com_eventbooking/themes/default/common/event_properties.php to make it works like that (not easy unless you know Joomla programming)
