Custom link for Announcement items

  Asked By: Kristine    Date: Sep 30    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2577

How do I change the link that the announcement item links to?

Maybe I'm just brain dead today, cuz it seems that this should be simple.
I'm using the enhanced announcement web part that lets you add announcements
from the web part (it brings up a box, asks for title, abstract, dates and
an edit content link that brings up the simple html editor). Very nice for
your average new announcement that isn't really a link to another document.

But what I really want is to add a web link-type of document so that the
result is just a title, a link to some other content, the date, submitted by
and abstract. Kind of like the News item web part.

When I try putting a .url document in the portal content/announcements
directory, the link becomes portal content/announcements/nameoffile.url and
then it can't open it right.

Even if I add "web link" profile to announcements directory, go in and
assign web link profile to the .url, change the link, it still does this
name_of_file.url as the link itself

Anyone tried this? Am I stuck and I'm trying to use the announcements web
part for custom links functionality that the news web part is designed for?
