I'm having an issue with a presenter for a client of mine.
They want to link the buttons at the on of the presentation
not to a url but to a extention of a url that will automatically
locate to the domain that it's filed under.
They would like the links to be: Contact/index.htm
The reasoning for this is because they will be relocating the
files of the presenter to different directories frequently to
associate with different programs.
The issue i'm getting is when these are published to the web
and the links are clicked, an extra extention of "/data/resources/
is being added to the link so it's more like:
The problem you're experiencing has to do with the way in
which Presenter content references local vs. absolute links.
This was (and actually, it still IS) a persistent problem
that many, many folks have inquired about.
I'm fairly certain that regardless of which version of
Presenter you have installed (6 or 7), when you use hyperlinks that
call relative addresses (e.g. /contact/index.htm), by the time you
publish that content, Presenter will
always default to the data/resources directory of your
presentation. This wasn't so much of an issue with Presenter's
predecessor Breeze, but it doesn't help much with Presenter 6 or 7.
One thing that we have managed to work out is a hack; meaning
that within the resources directory of a published presentation, we
added an index.htm file that contains a script that forces a
redirect to a landing page elsewhere on a server. This way, as soon
as a button is clicked, the redirect page shows up...and on that
redirect page, a message is displayed informing the viewer that
they're about to be taken to a totally different location. It's by
no means a clean solution...but without using absolute "
http://" protocols, there wasn't much of a
The other downside to this approach is that anytime you
change where folks are being redirected to, you're forced to edit
the htm page within the resources directory of your published
