    Default Hyperlinks to external documents no working

    When i click on a link from the WTLB to NWT_Rbi8 or others, i get a message saying the external document cannot be found.
    I downloaded them all under a folder i lableled Teocratico, then under the Downloads folder, then under the iSilo folder to see if any of that would fix it. I get the same response no matter what folder i put it in.

    Does anyone know a fix for this?

    Arrow Hyphen and underscore

    Make sure that the target file has the exact same filename that is specified by the link. Maybe the link is looking for a file named NWT-Rbi8 (with a hyphen) but you have the file named with an underscore as in NWT_Rbi8.

    Also on the iphone the CASE must match

    By CASE I mean upper and lower case.

    So
    NWT-Rbi8-E.PDB
    is NOT the same as
    NWT-RBI8-E.PDB
    or
    nwt-rbi8.pdb
    On the iPhone.

    Yes it is the same on Windows and on Pocket PC but NOT on the iPhone.

    This makes sense as the iPhone is built on top of UNIX structures and in UNIX case does make a differences.

    So look at error message and see what the format of the case for the missing document.

    Bigger gotya is if the document you are using that links the the Rbi8 is done by someone using aonther platform they may not have paid attention to the CASE and two documents compiled by the same person might ask for nwt-rbi8-e.pdb but use different case.

    Default Similiar problem

    Hi everyone,

    I am also having a problem with links. I am running a HTC Hero on the Android platform. I have installed the Watchtower 2008 files.

    The problem is this: When I click on a link, it takes me to the beginning of the publication, not the specific place.

    For example, if I click on the '+' next to a verse number in the Bible, it just takes me to the contents page of the Index.

    However, links to scriptures seem to work fine.

    Can you help please?

    Think I might have solved my own problem!

    I downloaded the Beta version: Beta version

    and now the problem seems to be solved.

    Hope this helps anyone else with the same issue.
