Hyperlink in calendars

Postby brofisher » Thu Jan 14, 2016 9:05 pm

The stake YW/YW have requested to add hyperlinks to the event description box in the Calendar for events. I have been able to create a hyperlink (shows what level i'm at) in a "word" document and link what they would like but have no clue in how to get the word document holding the hyperlink into that event box in LDS calendars.

I don't know if there is a way to move a hyperlink into this box or if you create the hyperlink right in the box itself.

Any insight would be helpful

I don't think the calendar will take rich text formatting, so copying from Word isn't going to help at all. The way I was able to do it was by using Notepad and using HTML hyperlink code.

For example

Code: Select all

Face to Face with Elder Rasband, Sister Oscarson, and Brother Owen.  See more information <a href="http://www.lds.org/youth/activities/face-to-face-events/rasband-oscarson-owen?cid=HP_TU_1-12-2016_dCN_fCNWS_xLIDyL1-B_&lang=eng">here</a>


http works, https doesn't work. And if you or anyone else goes in to edit the event, the link will disappear.
