I have created an html document that can be converted to a pdf file on the website (in Joomla). I have inserted an absolute link to an excel file I have uploaded to the server but the link in the pdf file points to the file on my local machine.
The page is here http://www.seecac.com/22tips/268-22-chart-accts and the link is at the bottom of the page. The link will open the excel file in the html page but not in the pdf file that is created by using the pdf link at the top of the page.
Any thoughts as to why?
do we talk about this llink:
<a href="/images/22tips/excel/1.xlsx" target="_blank" title="Excel 1">?
(SCAC Chart EW Firm Chart of accounts 5 digits 1 dept Effective 2013 02 13.xls).
My IE10 shows:
and when I use "open" I get this:
what means there wouldn't be a problem (in IE10).
Using this link: http://www.seecac.com/images/22tips/excel/ I can see your index (see screenshot)
>You are the first and only one to experience this
You mean I'm the first to report it to you. I can guarantee that it is happening to every visitor that is running Site Advisor.
http://www.seecac.com/ may be risky to visit.
Why were you redirected to this page?
Yes Hans, that is the link and correct file however, if you click the PDF download link at the top of the article and then try to open the Excel file from the link in the PDF file, it points to my local machine (at least here it does)
I just installed Site Advisor and the site opens without any warning in Firefox, Safari and Chrome. The warning comes up in IE 10 and IE 9 which leads me to suspect there is something amiss with the IE / Site advisor combination
I see the following rating:
SiteAdvisor delivered inconsistent testing results; doesn't work with Opera; doesn't work if paid version is running on IE; constantly reminds us that there's a paid version; isn't very configurable; relies entirely on white lists.
The bottom line: SiteAdvisor is one of the first secure browsing tools to go mainstream, however, since its acquisition by McAfee, the product delivers uneven test results and therefore can't be recommended over the free Netcraft toolbar.
Thanks, but I'm not convinced / worried

Just FYI... I'm getting the warning on IE8, IE9 and Firefox 19 - tested on 6 different computers at home and work running XP and Win7. I'm sure there is nothing wrong with the site, but Mcafee thinks there is and that's enough to frighten away potential visitors.

Yes, you are correct. I suspect I was not taking it seriously enough
Thank you, I will look into it further
It is regretable that there is no indication as to why it shows a warning
I know, there are usually more details as to why they issue the warning. Post a comment and ask for site review:

I just discovered that Joomla strips out the absolute reference if the article is not saved in a particualrt way. It works now.
Sorry to trouble you
Yes, I found the problem, thanks
