Thanks for your reply, I really appreciate your help.

I was trying to create URL link directly from template and always got a
"/" appended at the end of the base url, which I described in my last
email. I also tried to generate url string from php code and had the
same problem.

After I referred the information you provided, I created the link from
inside the php code too, but I include the whole HTML string into
$row->url, for example, inside php code, I did:

  $url = sprintf('<a href="%s%d" target="_blank">%s</a>',
$row->url = $url;

And then I retrieve $row->url from inside the template, then it works.

What I did are within two files:
my_path/cartoweb3/coreplugins/tables/templates/tables.tpl and

Hope this  would be helpful to others too.

Again, thank you very much and have a nice day,

     is your link base URL provided through the template or using some PHP
     code? Is it the base URL of your CartoWeb?

     Note that in most cases, you may conveniently use the CartoWeb
     "tableRules" feature to modify the content of your query results,
     including for generating HTML links.

     TableRules are explained in the manual:

     An example is implemented within the test_main project => have a 
look at
     the testMainTableRules plugin:
