Direct URL Links to Cards in Published View?

I think this might be a limitation of Coda right now, but would be interested to see if anyone has some workarounds…

I have a published version of my site and my table is displayed in a card view. We are using the cards as projects and basically expanding the row/clicking into the card for our partners to get more information around a project.

When you’re in the editable side of the doc, there are lots of great workarounds redirecting a person to a link where it will take you to a specific page and open that card by default.

Doesn’t look like I can do that on published. I’m not even sure how to manipulate a link to be able to emulate that same behavior.

When I copy the use the “Copy link to this row” button… it takes my user to the editable version of the site. That’s no good.

Any ideas? (PS. Thank you!)

Hi @Camille_Nussbaum ,

I think this is really important as well. I made another post in the suggestions box:

Also thank you for pointing out that sometimes people get links where it redirects them to the edit mode. Really dangerous regarding privacy.

Great point on the privacy issue. Hope this is something addressed in the future! I feel like there are a lot of opportunities to be unlocked if published docs had this feature.
