HTML in existing field or custom field

Hi there,
We're considering Collective Access for a portal-type project that would use abbreviated item descriptions and thumbnail previews simply to link out to other repositories where full item records, digital items, and digital collections are held. Is it possible to include hyperlinks in any current public fields, or to create a field that accepts HTML? What about attaching an external hyperlink to a thumbnail preview?


  • You can add URL fields to your records and then output them in your portal theme. Text fields accept HTML as well.

  • Super. Thanks.
