I am currently working on something and I would like to know if it is possible to link to other tpl file using html like above. If no, is there any alternative to that.
Thank you for reading and have a good day!
It's not possible to link directly to a .tpl file.
Each .tpl file (usually) relates to a full page within the system, for example index.tpl is for the homepage, forum/view_topic.tpl is for viewing topics etc.
You need to link to the full page instead of the .tpl file, for example for the homepage.
May I ask what you are looking to achieve, in case there is another way to do this?
You should simply be able to add
<a href="/example">text goes here</a>
replacing /example with the link to your custom page, and text goes here with the text to display in the link.
but can i add custom html/css to that custom page?
You can use the custom page editor (StaffCP -> Pages) and by clicking on the source button, you can enter HTML and CSS directly. Make sure you enable "Allow unsafe HTML" for the page when you do this.
When version 2.0.3 becomes available, there will be improvements to this feature to make sure none of your custom HTML gets removed by the editor.
