Is it possible to customize the fields within linkitemcollection or extend it to add one more field for collection



Can we add one more field to linkitemcollection edit links widget section as we have in this link, it's not adding the new field to linkitemcollection when I use linkitemdescriptor as in attached link. Can we extend the linkitemcollection?

If I understand correctly, you would like a display option upon your linkitemcollection is that correct?

If so you could approach this a different way:

  1. Create a block with a linkitemcollection property.
  2. Control the block display options as discussed here.

This way you don't have to get into creating a custom property. Draw back maybe on the editorial side, that it dosn't feel fluid.

I want to know if we can add new fields for linkitemcollection like one more textbox after link title, is it possible to do that?

Yeah it can certainly be done as Optimizely is quite extendible, have a look at this blog post it is more recent than the one you referenced


Can anyone help to answer is it possible to add one more field to linkitemcollection link item widget?

We followed this blog and it doesn't seem to work.

Thank you,
