Here is my scenario: In a collection trying to Navigate back to the collection Browse Page as I am trying to use it kind of like a Table of Contents.
Yes I tried the "navto://collection/[collectionname]?openTo=browsePage" with no luck.
I know the answer is out there but I can't find it.
That should work. Do you have a typo in your collection name? Did you use the collection name and not the collection title? Have you tried testing navto links to other collections or articles?
My Collection Title is "BEPADM" and Collection Name is "Business Edition Premise 8.1.2 Administration."
I have tried in several different collections and no success.
Is there perhaps a different way of doing the same thing? Like a goto option?
I think you have that reversed. The Collection Name isn't allowed to have spaces. Try the link with BEPADM.
You can try using navto://relative/parent, which is like a back button. It works if users tap a card to open an article, but if users tap a link from a different article, tapping the link takes them to the previous article, not to the browse page. I think you want to get the navto://collection link to work.
This is really mind boggling. We have a collection that contains a collection with articles. The parent collection cannot be accessed from the articles by direct linking via navto://collection/[collectionname]?openTo=browsePage
But navto://relative/parent works. But it is always leading to the collection, even though you said it would lead to the previous article if you came there by a navto link. That is not the case.
So everything is working for us as we would like it to. But I find the behavior so strange as it differs from every documentation I read, including your posts, Bob. Does that have to do with the nested collections?
YES! Nested collection changes the entire game.
In my situation I have collections nested. So the "navto://relative/parent" works over the higher level navigation of "navto://collection/[collectionname]?openTo=browsePage" which only works at top level ( A collection you can access directly from the landing/opening part of your app).
