Force hyperlinks in HTML article to open in device browser

Avatar

Level 4

I have several HTML articles that work great in AEM Mobile. But some of them contain links that we would like to open in the device browser, instead of the built-in app browser. Is there any way to do this?

Hi Keith,

When you create a standard <a href> link in an HTML article, the link opens within the app.

Example: <a href = "http://www.google.com/">Google In App</a>

If you want to open the link in the external browser, use the goto:DeviceBrowser?url= format:

Example: <a href="goto://DeviceBrowser?url=https://www.google.com">Google External App</a>

Hi Bob -

 

How would you set up this HTML code with styling? Also, will this still allow the link to work on non-mobile browsers such as PC or MAC?

 

style="padding: 13px 35px;font-size: 22px;white-space: nowrap;line-height: 22px;text-decoration: none;background: #00b2ad;border: 1px solid #00b2ad;color: #ffffff;box-shadow: inset 0px 1px 4px 0px #ffffff;border-radius: 4px;

 

Thx
