Why link doesn't work?

edited September 2013 in General Discussion
Hi all,

I did this in my app:

<tr>
                <td><a href="http://www.planetf1.com/rss/3371">
                </a></td>
            </tr>




Once I tested on my PC it opens rss feeds no problem once in app it doesnt work at all. Any ideas? All other links works fine!

  • Well I see one problem with your code. You don't have the text that needs to be displayed for your link. As I'm sure you know there needs to be some words between > and </a>. So if this is the exact code that you are using and the link is not being displayed that is why. <a href="http://www.planetf1.com/rss/3371">Planet F1 RSS Feed</a> is an example of what I'm talking about.

    Also, instead of linking to an RSS feed like that in your app, why don't you just create an RSS activity and link to that? That way the user will stay inside of your app, and you will still be able to display ads to them. Hope this helps!
  • Hi here is sample code i'm using:


    <body onload="FP_preloadImgs(/*url*/'button15.jpg',/*url*/'button16.jpg',/*url*/'button19.jpg',/*url*/'button1A.jpg',/*url*/'button1C.jpg',/*url*/'button1D.jpg',/*url*/'button1F.jpg',/*url*/'button20.jpg')">

    <table border="1" width="53%" height="237">
        <tr>
            <td width="195">
            <img border="0" src="red-bull_2719010.jpg" width="190" height="115"><table border="1" width="100%">

    So all links works but one to rss :(  any idea?
  • Does the link get displayed in the app? Or is it just a problem when the link is clicked that its not displaying the feed?
  • Hi link is visible but nothing happened once I click on it. 
  • Try using that web address in an RSS Feed activity. Then link to that activity instead of the RSS feed itself. That should solve your problem.
  • Hi the whole problem is that I'm not using rss activity. I'm using archive html where I have website with links to external website. One of these links is rss feeds. Once I tested on pc via firefox everything works perfect. Once I made zip file and uploaded to andromo the link to rss doesn't work. I click on it and nothing happens even tho it's looks like link it's blue and underscore.
  • Ya I understand that, but what I am saying is that you can use an HTML Archive Activity in conjunction with an RSS Activity. Instead of an http:// address you would just link to the andromo:// address of the RSS Activity. Try it out, I'm sure that it will work just fine.
  • OK, but the only problem is that user can go to RSS activity bypassing my HTML Archive activity as there is no option to hide/disable activity...
  • Well if you set your app to have no dashboard and your HTML Archive is the first activity listed then the RSS activity won't show up. The only way someone will be able to access it besides your HTML Archive would be to click on the top of your app where is says your app name and it has the drop down menu. But if they are doing that they are already seeing your HTML Archive anyway, so I don't see that it makes much difference. Hope that makes sense.
  • Hi yes it does. Thanks a million:)
  • No problem. Glad I could help a fellow developer out.
