I'm facing some issue with the local link on 5.8.10 on my side...
when i edit the page and create a link like "file:\\C:\localRepository", if i save it then there is no html code generated.
I've also tried to add it directly using the html macro and inserting directly
"<a href="file:\\C:\localRepository">follow the link</a>"
same result, the code disapear when saving my page
does anyone faced the same issue ?
The file call format "
///c:/path/to/your project folder/file/example.pdf]" works fine for us for local HDD access. Note the 3 forward slashes after "File:", and that we can accommodate spaces in the path and file name.
In addition, as all our offices have the same drive mapping with replicated files and folders for our project files on our different servers, we can also use:
///x:/path/to/your project folder/file/example.pdf]",
and this will open the relevant PDF stored on our drive mapped fileshares.
Note that for Chrome to process the File call correctly, you need to do two things:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" "--enable-extensions --allow-file-access-from-files"
2. Install the LocalFiles add-in by going to the following:
The issue we have is that the above works fine for file types that the Browser can open internally. But it won't work for other file types, e.g. *.docx, or *.xlsm. In these cases the Browser finds the file OK but it just opens a dialogue to "Save As", which is not appropriate.
