For example, is there a deep-link name attached to content, or are custom URLs supported?
You can use navto://article_name to navigate to any article within the app, even if it's in a different collection.
Navigating to other collections is not yet supported, though it is planned.
Are you also asking about linking to content from outside the app?
Or I guess, maybe a better way to ask is how to Nav to a collection's browse page from within the same collection, what would the url be?
Hi, in regards to buttons and navigation, I understand you can't nav to a different collection, but can you nav to a collection browse page from with the same collection? It isn't essentially and article, and I would like to use the new DPS nav as much as I can, instead of creating my own.
Thanks for your help. Is this documented anywhere yet?
Thanks for the explanation, Nathan, sounds fantastic. We are loving the new product, and are really eager to try out the collection navto when ready.
An article navTo will behave as follows:
When collection navTo is implemented we would provide the ability to navigate an article in the context of a collection (e.g. if articleA is in collections X & Y, you could specify "Open articleA in CollectionX").
Thanks for the clarification Bob. I've tried this and it works great. One point to note, it's case-sensitive.
Since you can reference the same article in multiple places, like with a "Top 5" list and also a "feature" article, I wonder how the app would know which one to navigate to? (not particularly important, just speculating)
We definitely look forward to using navigation to collections. We also have some ideas for navigating out to the browser, please keep this under consideration.
Good to know that navto://article works with articles in other collections within the same app!
Currently you can only use navto://article_name to navigate to another article within the same collection.
