Where you define the field will depend on whether you need the same or different links to appear on different invoices. You may not need any field.
I haven't tried this with the latest version PDF's but a while back I experimented with putting the full HTML tagged link on the layout from which the PDF was generated. (It could also be put in a text field placed on that layout). It didn't look pretty, but when I opened the PDF with Adobe Reader, I could click it to launch the specified site in my web browser.
So the result does not look pretty, but it worked when I tested this.
hi sorry but I've never worked with HTML so I'm a bit confused here, i tried doing what u said but i believe i might have messed it p…..does my link want to look like this ?
I did some testing. Try:
I removed the "/a" from the end of your text and then it worked for me when I put it on a layout, saved as PDF and then clicked the text in the PDF document.
hi i got this to work thank you
one more idea i had, is there a way to put the hyperlink in the send email script anywhere?i know when i was setting it up i made the subject of the email say "all jersey appliance invoice" could i stick the hyperlink in there anywhere? to avoid my lazy customers having to open a PDF obviously lol =P
I don't know but try entering http://www.alljerseyappliance.com into the body of your email and send the email to yourself as a test. If they can't click it (it may depend on their email software whether or not it is clickable,) but even then they can copy and paste the text into their browser.
this worked beautifully
