Note: Hyperlinks cannot be added to images that are part of a slideshow.

The hyperlink format

When adding hyperlinks, take note of the following:

  • Add the full link, including prefixes such as 'www', else the hyperlink will be treated as invalid.


  • Correct: www.woodwing.com
  • Incorrect: woodwing.com
  • It is also possible to use prefixes such as 'https', 'ftp', 'mailto:', and so on.


  • https://www.woodwing.com
  • ftp.woodwing.com
  • mailto:info@woodwing.com
  • Always test the link by clicking 'Test link' below the hyperlink field.

Note: When a link is invalid it is automatically redirected to where the Story originated from. For example when the Story was created in Inception for which the URL is inception.my-organization.com, the link is redirected to that URL.
