Create a link that opens in the same browser window?
Dec 03, 2013
The problem I'm trying to solve is giving our user a button or link at the end of the course that will automatically take the user to the next course.
My first attempt was to insert a hyperlink in Power Point, but it always opens in a new browser window. I would much prefer it open in the same browser so that the user can continue the same experience.
My second attempt was to create a web-object. However, in Presenter '13, there is no option to edit a web-object that you have created. This made it cumbersome to work with.
Another problem, is that in Presenter '13 there is no way to insert a web object without it automatically opening. Even if I uncheck the box that says "Load web object automatically" it still automatically takes me to the link in the web object when I open that slide.
Another problem, is that I want to use a relative link, where the domain is pulled from the current domain.
"/class2.html" instead of "http://mydomain.com/class2.html", for example. However, web objects will not allow a relative link, it has to be a static link.
In Storyline, I can create the web objects, edit them at any time, and they don't automatically load when I uncheck the box "Load web object automatically". I still can't do a relative link.
Maybe there is a better way to link to the next class? Maybe there is a solution to some of these specific problems I'm trying to work through?
