I am using Sitecore 9.3 and SXA, I need to render the general link field in a Scriban template but when I reference it using i_item.Link it returns empty.

Is there a specific syntax to render the general link field?

There are two ways to accomplish this, use custom Scriban extension, see the following code sample:

public class GetLinkUrl : IGenerateScribanContextProcessor
    private readonly IContext context;
    private delegate string LinkUrlDelegate(Item item, string linkFieldName);

    public GetLinkUrl(IContext context)
        this.context = context;

    public void Process(GenerateScribanContextPipelineArgs args)
        var linkTargetUrl = new LinkUrlDelegate(GetLinkURL);
        args.GlobalScriptObject.Import("get_link", (Delegate)linkTargetUrl);

    public string GetLinkURL(Item item, string linkFieldName)
        if (item == null)
            return "#";

        if (item.Fields[linkFieldName] == null)
            return "#";

        LinkField lnkField = (LinkField)item.Fields[linkFieldName];
        if (lnkField == null)
            return "#";

        return lnkField.GetFriendlyUrl();

And you add the processor above to the generate Scriban context as below:

          <processor type="Sitecore.Foundation.SitecoreExtensions.ScribanExtensions.GetLinkUrl, Sitecore.Foundation.SitecoreExtensions" resolve="true" />

Now in your Scriban template you can use it as:

{{get_link i_item "PromoLink"}}

Another way you can control the anchor is to try something like:

{{ sc_field i_item "PromoLink" [["attribute1", "attribute1value"],["attribute2", "attribute2value"]]}}
