I'm hoping someone can help me with this error, I was working on my indesign file and was testing it out locally, then I went on to upload my file and I got prompt to install a new version of the Folio panel which I did, now every time I try to upload my file I get this "ERROR: Invalid URL for Web Content Overlay", I've searched around and have not come up with an answer. Not sure if its a bug on the new update or what. I tried some troubleshooting which this is what i did. I copied my first page of my document onto a different file and tried to upload one page and then i got the error but then I deleted the images and just left one text box and it uploaded my file without any issues, strange huh. Any ideas????
This might be a strange bug that occurs here and there ... what is the URL you are pointing to?
AFAIK the bundler/content generator/folio builder is not aware of the content of the URL at the moment of upload, Bob.
This more sounds like a malformed URL.
Could be…I’m working by email and not checking for screenshots and other visual references.
I do believe the URL has to have the http:// in it and I’ve seen problems when folks leave that out.
For local HTML content make sure there are no spaces in file names.
Thank for the replys... That the issue, Im not pointing to any URL's that are redirecting. See my test page, if i remove the Object States at the bottom and delete the "TNP" logo the file uploads fine. I'm certain this might be a bug because it is only happening here and there just like Johannes thinks, everything was working perfect just right before I updated the folio panel. Any other troubleshooting ideas I should try?
I recreated the pages on a new indesign file instead of copying and tried again to upload my folio and to my surprise it work like a charm. Thanks Tomek!!! Adobe needs to see if this indeed is a bug or what might be cauing this, thanks for everyone's input.
I think it's not a straightforward bug.
It might be some obscure (hidden) absolute path info from the source file, messing up things in exported destination file.
Good you're up and rolling again!
I'm pretty sure I know what the problem is, I've posted about this before.
The problem (in may case) seems that if you create a box and then create a webview of it and add a URL, but then subsequently
remove the url and leave it blank, then perhaps use it for another image that isn't a web view, then the system still thinks that that the image box is still a webview and generates an error.
So the moral here is, double check that any image boxes that you may have checked as webview, are being used as such, and have a valid url, any that are not being used, and have blank url fields are still "live" and throw up errors.
I was having the same problem with both hyperlinks and buttons in one particular file -- "Invalid URL for Web Content Overlay." It seems to only be a problem in files where I had a link or button previously, and then deleted the object. When I create a new object and create a link or button, it's as though the old link is still lingering somewhere in the file! However, none of the old links is listed in the hyperlinks panel before I create a new one.
This occurred while I was teaching a DPS class, using the Adobe courseware (sight unseen by any proofreader, I believe). In one of the exercise files, the steps for the student to create hyperlinks and buttons had already been done, so I deleted the hyperlinks. (I think I deleted the text frames that contained them, but I'm not sure.) I never had a problem with it UNTIL I downloaded the Overlay Creator/Folio Builder dated June 19 (v21, I think).
In the same file, I also had problems with a NAVTO link, . I don't think there were any NAVTO links in any earlier version of the file, at least none that I ever created or deleted.
I've coded HTML since the days when the only available tool was Notepad, so I'm sure that I used correct URLs (and none redirected). Even the URLs in the deleted objects were correct; I only deleted them so the exercise could be done again.
