Creating Links to Guides & Guide Steps
Create a link to a specific guide or to a specific step within a guide using the following guides.
Creating Links to PDF Documents
Easily upload documents to your Dozuki site and create links to documents from various pages.
Setting Up Links to Internal Resources
In order for your links to be interpreted correctly, your server address must be formatted according to specific protocol. Links must contain a "suffix" of 2-7 alpha characters following a period.
Acceptable link suffix formats:
These addresses appear in the correct actionable link format when entered in a link URL address.
Unacceptable link suffix formats:
These addresses will not be recognized as a "link" format; therefore, they display in plain text rather than appearing as a link when viewing the page.
- http://internalresource.a/file/A/12345.pdf/ (only 1 letter)
- file://internalresource.123/file/A/12345.pdf/ (numeric and not alpha characters)
- ftp://internalresource/file/A/12345pdf/ (no suffix at all)
Supported Link Protocols
Dozuki supports several link protocols:
- ip address (example: http://127.0.0.1 or https://127.0.0.1)
Setting Up Email Links
Create a link that opens up an email to a specific recipient. This allows you to specify the email address, the link text, the subject, and the body. The link format looks like the:
[mailto|(recipient's email address)|(link text)|subject=(the subject)|body=(the body)]
A complete email link will look like this:
[email@example.com|Say Hello|subject=Hello|body=Just saying hi.]
When formatted, it looks like this: Say Hello
When users click the link, it automatically opens their email with the recipient, subject, and body populated. Both the subject and body components are optional. The only required part of the email link is the recipient's email address.
