Thanks so much for the clarification @jorn!
I’ve reached out to the team just to be sure here. Currently this is expected behavior.
The only way to link to a collection page is to have your link / button nested inside of a Collection list, unless your link is nested inside a rich text element. We hope to extend these settings to the standard link settings in the future, but until then you have a couple options for a workaround:
- Add the link inside the Rich text element and style it like a button
- Nest the button inside a collection list
I hope this helps clarify the behavior here!
