    When I link to a resource that’s in another context, should I expect the link to use that context’s subdomain?

    For example: if I edit a resource in my context “foo” (which is not the default context), and my link code is this:
    [[~42? &scheme=`full`]]

    …Where “42” is a resource in the default context.

    I will get a link that looks like this:

    However I would expect it to look like this:

    Am I missing something?

    I am running ModX 2.7.1 and using the ContextRouter 1.2.0 on Linux/Apache/PHP/MySQL server.

      Be sure that the base href tag in each template is called uncached (with the exclamation point):

      <base href="[[!++site_url]]" />

      Also, make sure that each context has these settings and they are set appropriately:


      It that doesn't do it I would suspect that when the parser handles a link tag, it uses the value of the "base href" tag on the current page's template rather than consulting the context of the resource being linked to.

      Someone more familiar with ContextRouter can probably give you a better answer.

      Worst-case, a fairly simple custom snippet could take the place of those link tags and build the URL you want based on the target resource's context_key and a call to the context's makeUrl() method.

      You might also want to take a look a XRouting.
