    Default Links in sortable table widget

    Looking for help in putting hyperlinks to names in a sortable table. I've used the widget for some time, and now have an application that would require the names in one column to be hyperlinks. I've experimented by putting link syntax into the CSV on some of the names. They show up underlined and clickable, won't work in Preview, but even after publishing to server, I get error messages whether I click to documents already referenced elsewhere on the site, or even to external sites.

    If anyone has tried this and wants to see a live example, I can provide that. If it's impossible, I'd like to know that, too. Thanks in advance. This is an exceptional forum.

    You have to wrap your links in an HTML A Tag: <a href="urlLink" >Visible Link Text<\a>.
    I documented this a few years ago.

    Thanks, Acorn. All the anchor syntax was correct, as it has been for all the same links when not embedded in a table. Further experimentation found that one of the five links worked, so I began comparing to the others. It appears I have some inconsistencies in the path names and file names that are problematic in the table that work fine elsewhere. I may have to rename some of the PDFs to eliminate any embedded spaces in their filenames, then delete and reattach some to get them picked up in the index_htm_files folder.

    For spaces in your PDFs, keep your filenames, but in your links, replace each with %20.

    Just found the old Thread: https://www.talkgraphics.com/showthr...e-Widget-Issue. Post#15 summarised what I found worked.
