Link to files on the network - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

Is it possible to have Contribute not update/resolve and upload a local/networked file link? I have a link like the following: file:///J|/Library/Dept/CM/Statistics.xls as the href for an anchor link... However, when I publish the page, Contribute converts the link to a site link like this and uploads the file to the site directory: [url]http://mysite.com/doents/Statistics.xls[/url] So basically I'm looking for a way to keep my link as a file:/// link and not have the upload occur. Any ideas on how to get around this? Thanks very much for all your help, Greg...

    Default Link to files on the network

    Is it possible to have Contribute not update/resolve and upload a
    local/networked file link?

    I have a link like the following:
    file:///J|/Library/Dept/CM/Statistics.xls

    as the href for an anchor link...

    However, when I publish the page, Contribute converts the link to a site link
    like this and uploads the file to the site directory:
    [url]http://mysite.com/doents/Statistics.xls[/url]

    So basically I'm looking for a way to keep my link as a file:/// link and not
    have the upload occur.

    Any ideas on how to get around this?

    Thanks very much for all your help,

    Hi Greg,

    Contributes functionality is to upload the relevant files to the server and
    re-write the links so that they work fine. The link will be broken if the link
    still points the local path as the file would not be available in the server.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
    Thanks,
    Radhika
