EntryLink

Outputs absolute URL pointing to an archive page related to the the current entry in context.

When used without the archive_type attribute, a link to the entry permalink (individual) will be output… same as if the <$mt:EntryPermalink$> was used.

Link to the main category archive of the entry in context:

<a href="<$mt:EntryLink type="Category"$>"><$mt:EntryCategory$></a>

If the same archive mapping type is used more than once in the same blog, a url to the preferred archive will be output.

Note: The preferred archive can be selected by selecting the checkbox next to the archive mapping type in the Template Options for the template you wish to be the preferred template.

This did not work properly for me; within the entry template,

<mt:entryLink type=”Category” />

always outputs a link to another archive list! Not even to a category list.
