I'm glad to see I'm not the only one using a HtmlField in a custom widget. Links in a HtmlField appear to cause lots of problems. So far I've found this:
- if the target page moves or gets a different URL for another reason, the links are not updated (PITS here
- in multilingual sites, links to other languages than the default one do not work because the language prefix (de/, fr/) is not added to the URL's. I have a support ticket open for this, but it's already confirmed to be related to the other issue.
The standard Sitefinity Content Block seems to work a lot better, but it's no alternative in most real life cases.
So now we have 3 issues with the HtmlField in a custom widget. This needs to be fixed quickly!
Are you using this in multilingual sites as well?
