webdesign >> Hyperlinks don't work after Saving as Web Page

by S2F5IEM » Wed, 24 Nov 2004 11:53:01 GMT

In Publisher 2000, when I "Save as Web Page", my web site looks great except
there are always a few hyperlinks that don't work. Does anyone know what
causes this? Sometimes if I redo the hyperlinks, they will work and
sometimes I have to redo them several times before they all work. It is
frustrating because I need to make changes to the site on a regular basis but
keep having this hyperlink problem.

It is easy to error when entering the hyperlink address. Be careful about
spaces, upper or lower case. Zero's and O's, ones and L's can cause

The hyperlinks don't contain errors, but thanks for your suggestions. The
problem occurs when I save as web page. There are always a few hyperlinks
that don't work after saving. (The finger pointer does not appear, although
the text is underlined and looks like a link.) It seems to me they should
either work or not work. Having to go back several times and redo them when
they're already done properly is frustrating to say the least.

Also, you may have text and/or image box on top of each other. They can
touch each other but can't be stacked.

ALL of the Publisher generated files must be uploaded to be certain
that everything will work. It may not work properly if you only reload
the base file.

Wouldn't all the Publisher generated files be in the Publish folder after
saving as web page? I'm not sure what you mean by reloading the base file
(?) Thanks.

That response would be for version 2002, and 2003. Kay your version 2000 does
create a Publish folder that contains all your files, that you upload.

If you worked thru the hyperlinks pit falls I have documented on the FAQ -
http://www.publishermvps.com/Default.aspx?tabid=30 and still can 't determine
your issue(s) then post the url so I can review the matter.

6. Send Web Page by Email (hyperlinks don't work)

Greetings. I have the following problem when sending a web page from
Outlook 2000.

I have created a web page using MS Word. I have used a lot of text
boxes and in some text boxes I have inserted hyperlinks. I then
published the web page to a web server, and when I browse the page, the
hyperlinks worked as expected.

However, when I send the page out using Outlook (I opened the web page
inside Outlook and then use the command "Action-Send Web Page by
Email", the text boxes becomes some kind of picture, and the hyperlink
does not work anymore (because all the text inside the text box becomes
one big image).

I used the text boxes because I need to do a lot of formatting. Could
some one please give me suggestions on how to make the hyperlinks work?

Many Thanks & Regards,

I am creating process flows that I would like to link to external documents

I've tried to link to files on my local hard drive as well as across the 
network.  I've tried relative and absolute paths, although for my final 
solution I will need to use absolute paths.  I've tried Word docs, html, and 
Excel docs.

Editing the html is not an option since there will ultimately be 100's of 
links and the document will be regularly updated.

I cannot find anything anywhere that states that external links are not 
supported when creating a web page.  I've seen the problem raised in various 
forms, but have not found a solution to my problem anywhere.

I'd appreciate any help!
