How To Guides:
This option affects URL in text fields such as Notes, that appear in Family Historian created HTML pages, and URL added in Wizard Step 8: Final Details via the Advanced button. It also converts special placeholder text as described below.
It does NOT affect the hyperlinks create by Family Historian to navigate around the Individual and Family featured pages.
Select the Open URL target pages method from the dropdown list.
Select how to Abbreviate long URL from the dropdown list, to curtail the display of long URL without affecting the target URL.
The placeholder text formats are:
Use the Convert all URL ... to active Hyperlinks and alter special Hypertext button to perform the changes.
Currently only user www. and http: and https: and ftp: and mailto: protocol scheme URL are converted to hyperlinks.
www. & http: are included as Family Historian misses any in "quotes" or <chevrons> despite being recommended formats.
Even user www. and http: hyperlinks created by Family Historian will have their method of opening changed.
In addition, if a user URL in any text field is embedded in an HTML Anchor Tag then it will be appropriately converted.
