I have a field that looks like


SKU: www.cool.com

the code that spits that out is

<tr>
  <td><b>SKU:</b></td>
  <td><?php echo $product_info['sku']; ?></td>
</tr>

the www.cool.com is what I entered in for sku: but what comes out on the page is not a clickable link. What I would like to have is where i enter in what ever website I want for sku, then have the output on the webpage look like

SKU: Click Here

and when they click on "click here" it will take them to www.cool.com


i have tried several things, just not getting it to work, and help will be appreciated.

OK

<td><a href="<?php echo $product_info['sku'];">Click Me</a></td>

I'd suggest some HTML 101 tutorials

That was the first thing that I tried, when I do that I get an error

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '?' in /home/content/49/6422449/html/catalog/view/theme/bears/template/product/product.tpl on line 39

Here is the full page code in case it helps.

What ardav suggest is correct bu missed a ? symbol

<td><a href="<?php echo $product_info['sku'];" ?>Click Me</a></td>

I still get the same error, it says "syntax error, unexpected '?'" in the next line... I didnt need the next line, so i removed it, and then it says I have an error in the next line again.

Somehow the

<td><a href="<?php echo $product_info['sku'];" ?>Click Me</a></td>

is causing an error in whatever line is next, because those errors were not there until that code is introduced.

I am so sorry about that

<td><a href="<?php echo $product_info['sku'];?>">Click Me</a></td>

That one does not produce any errors... but the optput is blank. It now appears on the page as

SKU:


I think I am a lot closer here... do I need to add something to define the text appearance?

yes, but it is not displaying.

it should look like

SKU: Click Me

but it comes out as

SKU:

Just copy and post the line of your code here:

<td><a href="<?php echo $product_info['sku'];?>">Click Me</a></td>

Are you confirm that $product_info receveing the value by printing before that statement. and check you get it or not.

I am sorry if I am not explaining myself correctly, I do not know a lot about php. I will try again.

The code:

<tr>
  <td><b>SKU:</b></td>
  <td><?php echo $product_info['sku']; ?></td>
</tr>

Puts out:

SKU: "whatever I enter in the SKU field"

I want it to put out:

SKU: "Click Me" and whenever they click on "Click Me" it takes them to whatever website that I enter in under the SKU field.

You can see an example of what I mean here:
http://www.johnsoncityfood.com/Osaka

The area that I am referring to is in the top right corner to the right of the picture

Thank you so much for your help, I know this is frustrating.

post the tr with td that you have in your code

I did...

<tr>
  <td><b>SKU:</b></td>
  <td><?php echo $product_info['sku']; ?></td>
</tr>

Puts out:
SKU: www.test.com

the code you gave me:

<tr>
  <td><b>SKU:</b></td>
  <td><a href="<?php echo $product_info['sku'];?>">Click Me</a></td>
</tr>

Puts out:
SKU:

it is empty after SKU

<td><a href=\"<?php echo $product_info['sku'];?>\">Click Me</a></td>

<td><a href=\"<?php echo $product_info['sku'];?>\">Click Me</a></td>

What ended up working for me was

<a href='http://<?php echo $product_info['sku']; ?>' target='_blank' >Click Me</a>

You led me on the right path, thank you so very much!
