    Hyperlinks for ePub

    TL Price Level 1

      Hi Adobe forum,

       

      I have a very long document with thousands of hyperlinks and email address. Almost all of which don't start with http://. When I convert them automatically, it doesn't add the http:// and I have to do it manually which is very time consuming. When I export the document to ePub I get errors for every single hyperlink. Does someone have a good fix for this?

       

      Thanks,
      Tara

          If my memory serves me right, the InDesign’s “Convert URLs to hyperlinks” feature creates “shared” hyperlinks. That’s why they don’t work after exporting to ePub. I wrote a number of scripts for this task. Last year I was working on a big project on “converting” old printed books to ePub & HTML format.

          Here is a script that may come in handy to you. Check out also the hyperlink section on this page.

            Oh my god! That is absolutely Awesome. Thank you so much for forwarding it along. I am so happy.  I spent a good portion of yesterday looking for this, it is going to save me so much time in the future.

            Thank you again,
