Posting URL to a File

Jan 2, 2009 at 1:39 PM
I want to embed a url to a file that will reside on my webapp. I am having trouble and keep getting access denied or file not found. I have double checked the path the url is using in the browser and it is correct. Do I need to do anything special to my web app security to get it to work?

Assuming you are using the editor in BE to specify this URL?
After you save the post/page with the URL open the editor window back up and in HTML view and see if it has changed the path.
A little more detail or example may also be useful.

I enter codeshare/SQL Server/SQL Server Update Dimensional References.sql and save it. When I view the blog in the browser the link it referencing

I ran into that also with image files. It seems you cannot use relative paths in the editor. Can you use the full http://address? If not the way I worked around it was to manually edit the datastore. If you do the latter you may not see your change immediately due to caching.
