I'm reposting this in the broader community:
We have some users who would like to use file:// protocol HREFs in their Wiki posts. Since this is for internal consumption and the users all share the network space of the filer, this should be ok. Unfortunately adding a HREF with the file:// protocol does not work. The anchor is stripped of everything so all that shows up in the HTML is <a>\\server\path</a>.
I found a post about the same thing from 2006/7 but the URL that was given as a link to where the solution was documented doesn't work. Here it the Post.
Can someone tell me if/how this can be enabled and where to find that information? And is the behavior different in the out of the box Enterprise 3.1 software? We are currently on 2.6 but will be moving soon to 3.1.
A side question - is there a file management plug in that could easily insert a link to a file share?
