I have a situation and I do not know how to solve it. Here is the situation :
In our Web site, we have PDF files which include links from the PDF files to HTML files which are also in our site. So, let say that someone in reading a PDF document in our site. In the document, it says for example : "For more information, click here". This link brings the person to an HTML file in our site.
But if we a move the HTML file (change the name of the file or the path), the PDF document will not "know it". So the links will be broken.
Is it possible to make sure that the links in the PDF documents will be updated when we makes changes to the HTML files? Is there a plugin we could install in Dreamweaver that would change the links in the PDF files. I make a seach but I did not find anything!
Thanks for your help!
To my knowledge the update links feature in dreamweaver does not work on links in pdf files, I think you would have to do this manually in acrobat. The other way would be to setup a 301 redirect in a htaccess file, if your webserver and host supports that method.
Thank you very much for your help! It is really appreciated!
I think that it is a little bit strange that a company like Adobe which created Dreamweaver and the Acrobat PDF software line did not consider this particular situation when they designed Dreamweaver. I am probably not the only who got this problem...
I did not know the 301 redirect in a htaccess file method. I used it and it is working properly.
