You may face an issue where you get dead links when trying to hyperlink a file from the locker to a page on the website. This has worked in the past and you already uploaded the file to your locker but it is not working at the moment.
This issue is due to the hyperlink having an HTTP URL. Only hyperlinks with an HTTPS URL will work on School websites. Although the file in the locker could have an HTTPS URL when hyperlinked to a page in the website, it could change to HTTP for a variety of reasons. You can edit the link manually from the page by doing the following steps:
- Go to the Site Center
- Click on the page where the dead links are present
- Click on Edit
- Go to the dead link, right-click on it
- Click on Edit Link
- Under Link info, change the Protocol to https://
As we are moving to a more secure way of transferring data, kindly always use the HTTPS protocol when linking files.
