POST Code Injection - Question

Hello!

Is it possible to use the Code Injection part of a post to add some custom data, IE a resource key.

Then in the post theme, reference the resource key thats in the post code injection part?

Resource key (in code injection) + theme template/ahref = the full link required for a button.

I think it’s possible, i just need to be pointed in the right direction on how to pull this off code wise.

Pretty sure i’ll need todo some custom varibles?

Im wanting todo a IF Member, show some code in the theme, and link in the resource key.

Thanks in advance
Sam

Is there a reason you can’t just use code injection to generate that link and apply it?

<a id="resource" href="#">Link</a>

<script>
document.getElementById('resource').href = 'https://my.site/key';
</script>

Thanks for the reply! I think that is exactly what im after!

How would i get that URL (https://my.site/key) into the href="#"> or will the # automatically do it?

The href="#" is just a placeholder, and translate to “when you click this link, scroll to the top of the page”.

The document.getElementById('resource').href = ... portion translates to "give me the element that has an id of resource, and set the href property to ..., and that’s the mechanism which updates the url

That works perfectly! One more question.

Theme:

{{#if @member.paid}}
  <a id="resourcekey" class="c-btn c-btn--loading c-btn--full href="#">Download Now</a>
{{/if}}

Code Injection diffrent each per post:

   <script>
        document.getElementById('resourcekey').href = 'dece3584ef';
   </script>

What im trying todo is put the first part of the URL (clickable button) behind a paywall to a download link.

The first part of the URL is always the same,

https://domain.com/dev/474656070/

But if we add the resourcekey of “dece3584ef” to the url it’ll turn into a working link

https://domain.com/dev/474656070/dece3584ef

How would i make this work?

You can just make dece3584ef that full URL

e.g.

   <script>
        document.getElementById('resourcekey').href = 'https://domain.com/dev/474656070/dece3584ef';
   </script>

However, to add a bit more security, another option is to keep the main part of the URL hidden in the link:

<!-- handlebars -->
<noscript><style>#resourcekey{display:none}</style><noscript> <!-- hide the link for browsers that disable js-->
{{#if @member.paid}}
  <a id="resourcekey" class="c-btn c-btn--loading c-btn--full href="https://domain.com/dev/474656070/">Download Now</a>
{{/if}}

<!--- code injection -->
<script>
const el = document.getElementById('resourcekey');
if (el) {
  el.href = el.href + '{key}';
}
</script>
