linkfield for my product contains an incorrect URL.
We build these links by retrieving information from your Shopware backend. The domain for each URL is retrieved from the sales channel settings, so make sure these settings are filled in correctly:
- I have a
custom fieldthat contains an image, but I only get an ID instead of an image link.
Retrieving the URL instead of the ID will put additional strain on your server as we’re doing one additional request per product. Therefore, we only want to do this when it’s necessary. If you want us to activate the feature that turns these IDs into URLs, you can contact Channable Technical Support.
