Resource url links not working

Apr 16, 2014

I added 5 resources total to the storyline player. 1 pdf and 4 url links. When I run the story.html file the links highlight in yellow when hovered over but the urls do not work when clicked. The pdf opens just fine.

In the Story_html5.html file the links and pdf work fine but look different when selected

I am viewing/sharing the output folder via dropbox for the client to review. I am using chrome and they are using IE and we are both experiencing the same issue. Is there something I am doing wrong when adding the url to the player resources? Still kind of new with this so hopefully it something simple.

Any ideas would be helpful.

Hi Andy and welcome to Heroes! 

Since you're able to open the links using the story_html5.html link, I wouldn't imagine there could be something off in the way you linked the resources or else they wouldn't open all together. You may want to check into what version of Flash you're using, and if the browsers are set to restrict pop ups (for your new links). 

If you'd like to share the .story file here with us, we're also happy to take a look and publish to a web server to see if Dropbox is also causing an issue, or you could use one of the other options listed in this article.
