HELP! Hyperlinks in Storyline

Dec 10, 2013

I'm unable to get my url's to publish in my storyline course.  In fact, when I check the file it says it's invalid or not found.  But when I past the url in Internet Explorer it works just fine and the documents open.

HELP please!!!!

Hi Diane,

If you're publishing locally the hyperlinks may not work/may be blocked. You'll need to publish online.

Here's an excerpt from this Articulate support page. There's more info there describing how you can publish.

If you view published Storyline content on your local hard drive or send it to someone else to view on their local hard drive, you'll encounter security restrictions from the computer, web browser, Flash Player, and network that'll cause various features of your content to fail.

To properly test your published content and share it with others, upload it to the environment for which it was published as described here (see the link above).

Please shout out with any questions.

I've been testing my hyperlinks as a published version to LMS but I'm viewing it before saving it as a zipped file.  I have had some problems in the past with replacing a course once it's been downloaded to the LMS so I avoid putting it into the LMS when I'm still testing my content personally.

I've never had this problem with Articulate Studio so this is new to me now that I'm learning how to use Storyline.

I appreciate any suggestions as I've been trying a number of times and ways to ensure my links are working.
