Is there a way to insert links in wiki pages to files on the same server (rather than upload the file itself)?

We have wikis and (afp) file shares on the same physical 10.6 server.

Thanks!

Xserve, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

    Hi - did you have any luck with this. I have the same query ie - I have files which I want to link to that will, when clicked on in the wiki, open the file rather than download it.......

    i think the best you can do is include afp:// links to the share but not the entire path to the file.

    if you're also sharing the files via webdav, ftp or another similar protocol, you could probably use fully clickable links.

    Having tested a few approaches, one that seems to work is to set up an FTP share that does not require login – that is, enable anonymous access to a 'public' ftp area. The permissions need be set to read-only or read/write to all, and files can be linked to in the following format from a wiki page:

    ftp://<servername>/<sharename>/<filename>

    While this works, it is not great from a security perspective – especially for internal wikis.
