    How to create a hyperlink in FG

    I took at look at this thread: https://svn.fantasygrounds.com/forum...into-ta-module
    And it doesn't seem to be what I'm looking for. I want to create weblinks to my online home brew wiki for this campaign so that players can reference the encyclopedia that's already there instead of me having to rewrite the whole thing. I tried putting the URL in a chat frame as describe and it outputs the to the chat a (LINK) but you can't use it. Clicking it does nothing.

    Is there any way to create an external hyperlink so that a person can just click the URL tag and it'll open their browser and go to the page?

    EDIT: I should point out that I know nothing about XML editing so when they talk about going to some...patchnote xml file I don't follow what they're getting at. I just want to be able to create a functioning link inside FG.

    Yep, sorry, as mentioned in that thread you're going to have to go and edit some XML. Like I said here: https://svn.fantasygrounds.com/forum...l=1#post362508

    This works for me. I know it's not a hyperlink but it does do 'something'.

    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    You can also look to use the community DOE: OLE Extension

    I have to say I second Entrails on this one, DOE is a HUGE time saver once it's set up. The key is to spend the time setting up the core world and then templating the campaign. I have one set up for each of the three worlds I run games in (Norrath, Gamma World, and the Shadow Lands), the base campaign files are zipped and saved in 3 locations, when I start a new campaign, I decompress the world campaign files, make any changes I want based on the particular campaign and then start the live game using the 'world' campaign file.

    This also means I can zip up the campaign and re-visit it later on, it also means I can have 2 campaigns running in the same world, literally at the same 'time'. I've done it once with a 'good' group and an 'evil' group without the DOE, there's no way I could have managed the notes from two completely independent groups working against one another nearly as efficiently.

    Although Mirloc was talking mainly about other Extensions in the DOE Suite of Extensions (thanks for the plug, Mirloc), Lord E is correct (thanks as well), the DOE:OLE was designed specifically to enable "Hyperlinks" to any URL (actually, any URI, to be technically correct).

    Its exactly what you need.
