Dropping Custom Field into URL on Template Component

edited March 2017 in Questions
This should be an easy one.  

I have a template field in a field editor component and I am trying to do a simple link to a Salesforce report where I am passing in a field value.  However, it looks like Skuid forces the custom field to be displayed.  

My setup.  You can see my template link is: 
<a href="https://my.salesforce.com/00O50000003v1Ir?pv0={{Household__c}}">Report</a>;

But the result is this:

What I want is the just the word "Report".  Why is it displaying the Household__c value?? I have tried enabling and disabling 'Allow HTML'.  Same behavior.

What do I need to do to my template link so that it drops in the custom field into the URL and only displays the proper text?

    Try using a triple curly brace around that Household__c merge:

    No problem! Just for fun (and in case anyone else finds this thread looking for info on Skuid merge syntax), here are a couple of documentation links:
    1. Skuid Template Syntax - http://help.skuidify.com/m/11720/l/216661-skuid-template-syntax
    2. Global Merge Variables / Functions - http://help.skuidify.com/m/11720/l/187263-global-merge-variables-functions

    Thanks for the resources.  I'll review these closer.  One more related question, I just added the target="_blank" and it's working great but when I get back to the Skuid page tab I see this blank pop-up.  What's that and how do I get rid of it?

    That's a new one to me. This is on the page builder? Would you mind posting your page XML (look for the View/Edit XML link in the bottom right corner)?

    Is there a way I can send it to you privately?  Otherwise I need to run through the code and mask a bunch of labels.

    Certainly, though you are welcome to mask the labels anyway. Is emailing [email protected] private enough?

    Peter, try marking "Read-Only" on your Template field. That should disable this popup.
