Hi. I have a rather "newbie" question, but since I couldn't find the |
answer anywhere else, maybe this is the right forum.
I'm trying to add a link to a file on a shared folder, say,
In the editor, both methods of adding a hyperlink don't seem to work for
me. Once I select the text and click on the hyperlink button:
1) If I choose the "URL" type, it always trims the "file:" part, leaving
this to be a relative link that starts with "servername/DFS_....", which
consequently be translated incorrectly as a local link. Overriding it in
the HTML tab as an "http://servername/.." doesn't seem to work either
since it will self-correct. Changing into using \ instead of / didn't work
either since it will auto-correct and remove the \'s.
2) If I choose the "File" type, it actually picks up the file and puts it
under resources folder and refer to it (the link will be transformed into
something like <a href="./resources/Database.mdb" target="_blank"> which
is not I want since I don't want EPF to retain a local copy. Size of the
resulting published website also grows accordingly to the size of the file.
Any feedback on how I can do this?
Thanks in advance for anybody's help.
p.s. I'm still using the older v.1.0.2a EPF Composer, but I didn't see
this being a bug that was fixed in later version anyway (unless I missed
