    Invalid URL Problem

    biketrials12
      Robohelp is telling me that I am creating an invalid url. When I try and complie the program to flash help it won't write the url I have specified. example <a href="/folder/page"> turns into <a href=""> The url is not in the projuct, but actually a sub folder on our server. It works if I hack the html/code after the help file is compiled, but I can't go in and hack the files everytime i compile a new help document. Is there anyway to get around or turn off this anoying feature?

          I am also getting the message "the hyperlink is outside the current project" when this url is created.

              <li style="font-weight: normal; /*begin!kadov{{*/ font-weight: normal; /*}}end!kadov*/ "
              class=kadov-p><p style="font-weight: normal;">Make sure you are
              on the <a title="The local area zones setup page."
              href="../../../../../webPageManagement/courierDeliverySetup/localAreaZones/"
              target=_blank>local courier zones setup page</a>.<br> </p></li>

              This code above doesn't work, the code below si what appears when the program is compiled

              <li style="font-weight: normal; /*begin!kadov{{*/ font-weight: normal; /*}}end!kadov*/ "
              class=kadov-p><p style="font-weight: normal;">Make sure you are
              on the <a title="The local area zones setup page."
              href=""
              target=_blank>local courier zones setup page</a>.<br> </p></li>

                Hi biketrials12

                One way to accomplish what you are trying to do is to use something called a "redirect" page. Surely you have encountered these on the web. These are pages that you land on where they have a message to the effect of :

                Our page has moved. Please update your bookmarks. The new page will appear in 5 seconds. If you are not redirected, click this link.

                These pages have code in the HTML that causes a different page to load up.

                The link below contains some information on how to create a redirect page if you are interested.
