    Hyperlink to a wordpress site

    GreenFrogPublishing Community Member

      Hi, I'm working on an ebook for an author who has videos on her website that I would like readers to have the ability to click on a hyperlink in the ebook to watch the appropriate video on her site. I'm exporting to an interactive .pdf file.

       

      The problem is that two different error messages come up from the hyperlinks in the .pdf file. One is:

       

          This document is trying to connect to: file:///Users/...

       

          If you trust this site, choose Allow. If you do not trust this site, choose Block.

       

      When I select Allow, nothing happens.

       

      The other error message is this:  http://meganskinner.com/blog/%3Fpage_id%3D1053 which takes the reader to an error page.

       

      The site that has the videos was created with wordpress. The developer sent 'alternative' urls to use, and also tried creating a separate page that is outside wordpress, and they all bring readers to the 2nd error message (that they're lost).

       

      I checked, all the urls I'm trying work outside of the .pdf files created by InDesign.

       

      Has anyone has these issues, and if so, what's the secret?

       

      Thanks in advance for your help!
