I would like a local internal install of Confluence to point to a pdf on a network fileshare and open when clicked, not take me to the location.
I am trying to use it in an advanced web link formatted like this:
\\Fileshare\Level1\Level2\Document name with space.pdf
When clicking it after saving - nothing happens. Hover over it - I see nothing in the browser.
I have tried
file://Fileshare\Level1\Level2\Document name with space.pdf
with no luck.
However if I do a file://\\Fileshare\Level1\Level2\ it opens the folder correctly.
I think the problem is the browser rather than confluence. Some browsers have security settings that make it difficult to link to local files. The only solution I have found for that problem is to use Chrome with an addon found here.
