Dynamic link href

I have a url stored for each of my contacts in one of their custom fields.  I tried putting that variable in the href value for a link, but the wizard complains about an invalid URL. 

I've seen an example in the user guide, but it uses a string literal for the url and then appends a variable from the contacts custom field to the end of that literal URL. 

I want to use the custom field value as the entire url.  The wizard doesn't like the URL because obviously the syntax does not contain the http or anything like that.

Do I need to switched to advanced mode?  How do I accomplish this?

I can use either wizard or advanced mode.  Wizard would be better but either one will do.

If you wish to use the wizard, then you will need to update your custom field to include the complete URI. Otherwise, you will need to use your own design in Advanced mode.
