Link to external site problem

Link to external site problem

Hi all,

I'm experiencing a problem with setting up a link to an external site. 

I managed to create a dynamic URL and it seems to work nice but there is one problem:

The link links to localhost: For instance, when the link is, after clicking the link I get a IIS 404 (page not found) error because the URL generated is not  "" but "localhost/{myEspaceName}/"

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks in advance, 

Cheers,  Rienk Eisma
Hi Rienk,

Try to put the http:// at the begining.

Yes it has something to do with http://.

I changed the URL property in the link to the external site (the earth-like external site thingy) from:



"http://"+ entityShow.Record.entity.Website
Now it works fine. I think another option could be to assign http:// to the website name save action.

Thanks for your help,

Cheers, Rienk Eisma

I have used the above mentioned solution in my code.

What I did is when 'http://' is not there with the URL, I prefix it.

But, the problem is when I try to include a URL, suppose and when I click the link from the URL ':' is removed and https// is what I get.

Any clues?
