Ho can I add a link to a shared location on my network?
I saw many answers but none seemed to work. I am using Chrome v49 or IE v11 and Confluence v5.4 (I believe)
I am trying to add a link to shared location \\ipaddress\folder1\folder2
Generally, the answer is "you need the browser to understand the links", not so much Confluence.
You can fool IE by putting in a file based link to your unc path - try file://///ipaddress/folder1/folder2 in a confluence "link" formatted block of text (i.e use a [ in the text to get a link). And yes, I do mean 5 slashes after file: !
Other browsers can do it, but Firefox and Chrome need add-ons to recognise the (not quite standard) file: protocol
thanks for your answer: I tried that also as per the forums replied I read, but it does not seem to work.
Yes, that's correct. The extra /// bit is to make Confluence save the correct number of slashes.
Now your link is correct, you now need the browser to understand that links like file://ip... are valid and it can follow them. I don't use IE much, I don't know where to look (it worked in 9)
