I am at the end of my rope on this one and it seems like it must be fixable, but even after talking to customer support twice, I am stuck on the same thing. Hopefully someone here has a workaround!
Here’s the issue - I have multiple places in my site where I’d like the user to open another page that is also in Softr but use url parameters on that page.
For example, open a form to update status, but the url of the form has url parameters to prefill some of the form fields, i.e. https://project.softr.io/form-page?prefill_Thing1=Value1&prefill_Thing2=Value2
Or as another example, open a detailed view of a list item, but the detailed view uses a presearch of a larger table to show just the item we want to focus in on, i.e. https://project.softr.io/list-page?search-for=ThingIWantToShow
Here’s the issue - as far as I can see, you can only open a page in a modal… just the whole page, no prefill or search for parameters allowed… and that’s fine, I can handle with a dynamic url, but if one chooses to open a url the only options are to open in a new tab or in the same window, no modal
I got desperate enough to attempt putting my own code block, but I can’t figure out how to define a custom button class (to open my dynamic url) that I could then use in the existing list or grid views that I want to put the dynamic modal link into.
Basically I want a button, appearing in an existing list or grid block, that opens a modal with a url parameter modified version of another page in softr. Does anyone have any ideas how to accomplish this? I’m about to throw away the whole site after weeks of work because this is really a showstopper on several key user flows… I’m sending my users out to page after page because I can’t keep them in the same flow without modified url modals
