Jive Forums: Link to local file

Former Member

Hi @all,

we have deployed the Jive forums *.sca's (NW 7.00 / SP18) and now we are testing a little around.

My question:

Is it possible to create a link in a thread to a local file, which can be accessed in the windows explorer?

I tried to create a link with the "file"-operator instead of "http":

file:///C:/11/test.doc

Embedded in a normal html-File and opened in the internet explorer I have direct access to the file, but when I create this as a hyperlink in a portal forums thread, there is no chance to view the file.

Kind regards

André Richter

Hi,

Are you on : Internet Explorer 7? Windows XP ?

Could be an security reason on internet explorer... Try to put this "Embedded in a normal html-File" on other location like network drive and you'll get the same error like on Portal navigation interface. If this file is on your local drive works, but not out of the local drive...

Let me know about this test.

Hi Scottie,

after deploying SPS20 the error was solved.

Reference: SAP Note 1319669 - Links with url scheme file:// are not rendered

Best regards
