You can add hyperlinks to custom pages within Skillport. These links can point to other custom pages in Skillport or to external documents and web sites. Restrictions and best practices for working with hyperlinks are described in the following sections.
Absolute Paths and Relative Paths
You can use either an absolute path or a relative path for the hyperlinks.
An absolute path Uniform Resource Locator (URL):
A relative path URL:
Examples of valid URLs:
Hyperlinks to Non-HTML Documents
You cannot create direct links to non-HyperText Markup Language (HTML) documents (for example, a Microsoft Word document). You can save the target document as HTML and link to it, or you can define it as custom content in the Catalog Manager.
Hyperlinks to External Documents
<a href="#" onClick='window.open("http://www.Skillsoft.com","Skillsoft","height=800,width=400")'>Link Text</a></li>
Note: You cannot add content to a page by using an Internet Protocol (IP) address.
Pages with Redirection
Some URLs use a redirection in the web page to send visitors to a different URL. These pages fail to launch from Skillport, and, when the user attempts to view the URL, an error message appears. To correct this problem, open the desired site in a separate browser, copy the actual URL from the address bar, and paste it as the custom link URL.
Add code for email links as shown below:
