Hyperlinks in browser vs app

Postby rdtenney8 » Sun May 10, 2015 7:38 am

Hyperlinks within Gospel Library
I have wanted to be able to paste legitimate hyperlinks to my notes in the Gospel Library (browser version). Instead, I just created text with the link address and when I wanted to follow the link, I copied the text and pasted it into the browser address bar. It worked even though I feel it was clumsy.
To my surprise, this morning I was viewing the windows app and created a note. I then pasted the link and whala, it came through as a real link. By clicking on the blue letters, I was taken directly to my desired window. I wondered how this link would appear in the browser version of the Gospel Library. I synched and then went back to my browser. The note looks like this on the browser side.
span style="font: 500 15px/20px "Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans Unicode", "Lucida Sans", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; color: rgb(68, 68, 68); text-transform: none; text-indent: 0px; letter-spacing: normal; word-spacing: 0px; float: none; display: inline !important; white-space: normal; widows: 1; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px;" xmlns:ns2="http://lds.org/schema/annotation" xmlns="http://lds.org/schema/ldshtml/v1"Gaye Strathearn lectures on Galatians. I love hearing her teach. /span
span style="color: rgb(68, 68, 68); text-transform: none; line-height: 20px; text-indent: 0px; letter-spacing: normal; font-family: "Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans Unicode", "Lucida Sans", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 15px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; word-spacing: 0px; float: none; display: inline !important; white-space: normal; widows: 1; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px;" xmlns:ns2="http://lds.org/schema/annotation" xmlns="http://lds.org/schema/ldshtml/v1"span style="font: 500 15px/20px "Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans Unicode", "Lucida Sans", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; color: rgb(68, 68, 68); text-transform: none; text-indent: 0px; letter-spacing: normal; word-spacing: 0px; float: none; display: inline !important; white-space: normal; widows: 1; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px;"a href="http://rsc.byu.edu/archived/sperry-symposium-classics/law-and-liberty-galatians-5-6"http://rsc.byu.edu/archived/sperry-symposium-classics/law-and-liberty-galatians-5-6/a/span/span

Clearly this is unreadable and unusable on the browser side. Please keep working to find a way to support hyperlinks on the browser side.

As this is an issue with LDS.org, rather than the Windows app, you'll need to use the feedback link at LDS.org to contact their team and report the issue.
Have a bug to report for Gospel Library for Windows v4? Check the Known Issues to see if it's been reported. (https://tech.lds.org/wiki/Gospel_Library_for_Windows_Preview_Issues)
Also visit the FAQ. (tech.lds.org/wiki/Gospel_Library_for_Windows_8_FAQ)
