Problem opening external URLs

  1. 2 years ago

    I cannot seem to get external links to open in a browser window regardless of how Allow External Links option or target is set. Any ideas or suggestions?

    It works perfectly with v2.3 Pro.

    You might also want to take a look at the openExternal() function as described on the following link:

    Kindly attach your APK to support if heaving some issues with it.

  3. Hi, I suspected this may be the answer. I've just checked using the onclick functions and that does actually work. But it does not solve my problem for two reasons, 1). The app is just a simple wrapper around a website which still needs to work in the browser, and using the onclick function breaks that. 2). The CMS that certain content needs to be edited through strips it out.

    Am I missing something with how links need to be marked up using simple html. Should target="_blank" be enough to get it to work?

    To test, I've tried publishing links on a basic html page, just to check it isn't some other javascript in the page causing it to not work. Still doesn't work, using 2.3 Pro. Great software apart from this though.

  4. I thought this option was for AJAX requests or embed images:
    < img src = "http url" />

    Thanx
