Whenever you provide any directory location on a published website code, you need to give relative path and not the actual path.
For e.g. if your file is located at C:\Music\file.mp3 then the path should be according to your project folder structure e.g. ..//Songs//Music//file.mp3

I think the browser is not accepting cookies. If a browser not accepting cookies then the browser can restrict some pages. Check the browser settings. There can also be a reason. The adobe reader of your's is not updated. If that happens then the web pages of .pdf will not open. Thank you.

SOURCE: not able to open links on webpages

Under the "tools" setting on toolbar. (usually in top right of screen in IE8) It might possibly be the Pop-up blocker is turned on and it is blocking access to the sites you are requesting.

Tools -- Pop-up blocker - then select Turn off pop-up blocker.

Hope this helps!

Hyperlink as the name suggests, is a connection that links two files or objects with respect to their location.
if the location changes then the link is cut, so it wont function.
if u have moved doc from one pc to another then it's more obvious that the link has broken due to the loaction, though the folder or file which is located in some specific direcotry remains as it is, but it has changed it's properties of address.
e.g.

How I can link an image with PDF file in Adobe Director


with most adobe programs you can click on the item you want to hyperlink and under the insert button select hyperlink. you will have the option to browse to the picture you want to link.

I am building a webpage with expression and when i publish my hyerlinks work in ie7 or 8 but don't work in firefox any ideas why this is????


there's usually compatibility building blocks for certain browsers but this only affects activex and media players which are optimised settings to display them in each browser.

using hyperlinks are simple and basic the script could be written in notepad and will work on every browser on the net.

i think it would have to be a problem with how your trying to preview your page try fully exporting every page into a folder and make sure your hyperlinks have the web page location in the command, if you try to preview the page out of the expressions default browser the hyperlinks will be out sync because they wont have a link location

hope this helps you out

I've published my web pages but all of the links don't work. they are there when I'm in publisher but just don't work when I publish?


Did you hyperlink them? where is this web page published? I would say that if the code was not uploaded correctly or if they were not hyper-linked properly that could be causing your problem.

Powerpoint add-in


I don't know of one, but you can build hyperlinks, by using the hyperlink button on PowerPoint's toolbar (looks like chain links). Be sure to give the full location of the file by right-clicking on the file you want the hyperlink to point to and selecting 'Properties' and then copy and paste the 'Target' dialogue (all of it, which is fully selected by default when you open the properties of the file) by using 'Ctrl C' and then in the PowerPoint hyperlink dialogue box use 'Ctrl V' If you run into more problems or need further instructions, please let us know.
