Adding relative links into the Resources tab using Storyline

The Resources tab where you add a link (URL) did not work for me since I needed the link to be relative to where the lesson was located on our training center website.

If you try to add a relative link (../guides/x.pdf) into the URL under the resources in Storyline, it will automatically add the http:// prefix meaning that the URL becomes absolute and will not work.

I figured how to workaround this and make it happen and thought to share...

Go into the story_content library in your lessons output and open the frame.xml file.

Search for "pdf" and you will be located where the pdf absolute link is.

simply change it according to your need, I changed it to a relative link such as:

../../../../guides/x.pdf (meaning 4 folders above where the lesson is located, and inside the guides folder)
