This is an article in a series of Sitecore how-to articles. These articles are meant to be quick guides to accomplish various tasks within Sitecore. The how-to articles have proven to be very helpful internally at One North Interactive https://www.onenorth.com. These articles assume working Sitecore knowledge. I just wanted to share the articles with the community. Hopefully you find them helpful.
If you have the ID of an item in the Sitecore tree, then you can create a link that will auto expand the tree to that item for other users to reference.
- Find the item in the content tree that you want to link to.
- Copy the item ID in the content tree.
- Create a url that matches the format:
/sitecore/shell/Applications/Content%20Editor?id=<item id (no brackets)>&fo=<item id (no brackets)>&sc_content=<database name (master or web)>**
- When a user clicks the link, they will be sent to the item in the content tree.
