    Hyperlinks in Conversation

    by jdolane5 » Wed Aug 01, 2018 2:54 pm

    HI there,

    I'd like to be able to put hyperlinks into lines of a conversation so that players can visit a page and then return to where they were in the conversation. Right now, we have basic <html> in our conversation (<a href="">text</a>), which returns the underlined text, but the link itself is not functional - it doesn't go anywhere.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to do this? Or is it only possible to put hyperlinks in plaques?

    Thanks,

    Jeremy

    I can think of a couple workarounds, but as far as I know links don't work in conversations.

    Instead of the body of the line including a hyperlink, you can use a "choice" to go to a "webpage" ARIS object. Create the webpage object with the url you want to the player to find.

    This will at least link straight to the webpage.
