This question came from a teacher here and it's not something that I have tried (or have needed to try) before. Anyone here try to setup something like this? He wants to have a link that will obviously only work on campus that opens up a specific server space. Not being recognized as a web URL it is over-written or fails.
Here's the email:
I am trying to connect content in a canvas page and announcement to a local and shared resource.
I can enter the URL into the browser and get the local directory but I can not get canvas to allow the link into the content body of a page or announcement.
Even editing the HTML gets rewritten on save.
I need an easy link to a shared folder so the changing content can be accessed from inside canvas. I do not care if the can not access the content from outside the school system, I need them the be able to access it on site.
I have tried drive letter and fully qualifying the servername and even a frameset (frameset worked by accident once when I copied some content)
