We have a client that wishes to link to an glossary created
as an html page with anchor tags for each glossary entry. In our
Presenter presentation we then link to the glossary term's specific
anchor tag on that html page. We have found a way to make this work
when run locally, but when we run it on a webserver or from our LMS
the links do not work.
file name with the anchor tags is faq.htm. Faq.htm file is
placed properly in the /data/resources directory that Presenter is
looking for it in.
using faq.htm#glossary_term for the URL does not work at all.
After compiling the presentation the link is non-functional and
does not respond to clicks (though works fine inside powerpoint).
Converting the # symbol to a hex encode value of %23 works,
but only if you run the course locally. URL that works locally is
faq.htm%23glossary_term. When run locally you can see that the %23
in the URL is automatically converted to a # symbol. As soon as we
load it to the web server or LMS server this will display a page
cannot be displayed error. With the error on the server the %23
does not automatically convert to a # symbol, but if you manually
change it in the address bar the URL then renders properly.
Is there anything that can be done in Presenter to get the #
symbol to be recognized so that the Hyperlink with the anchor works
properly? Or is there something we can do to get the %23 hex option
to work on the server? (server setting perhaps?)
