Pointing to an external link

I have few mp3 files and some jpg files on my FW5 page and would like that these links are pointing to external links on my server - where these files are stored

Any help ?

They should be stored in the /Resources folder that Freeway creates. You might try the url, www.yourwebsite.com/Resources. Depending on your server you might see a list of the resource files.

Or you can try www.yourwebsite.com/Resources/yourfilename.mp3 (or whatever file you are looking for).

maybe I dont explain my question very clear - English is not my mother tongue.
But thanks for your reply. and yes I can see all my files in the resoursce folder you mention. But what if I have the file on my server ?
Can I write the server url (www.mydomain.mp3) in to the resource folder - or is there another explanation.

Anyway thanks so far - Frank

How about creating the link in FW choose, Edit → Hyperlink ->External-> Other → then in the edit hyperlink box enter the url of the file?

There are basically two ways to make a link, and both work equally
well, all things considered. The first is what Freeway does by
default, which is called a relative link. You see a link in your HTML
code that looks like this:

href="Resources/somefile.pdf"

Your browser combines that with what is called the “base href”, which
is everything except the filename of the page the link is on, and in
the end, you get the full URL:

href="http://www.example.com/Resources/somefile.pdf"

The other way to write a link is to provide the complete URL (as
written above). The down-side to doing things this way is that the
site is no longer “portable”. If you move it to a different server, or
even a different folder on the same server, the links still point back
to the old location, and may or may not work, depending on whether
those files moved along with the page. By keeping URLs relative,
Freeway makes it painless for you to move your entire site around
without breaking any links.

So if you are entering this file URL in Freeway, best to do things the
“Freeway way” and make all relative links.
