File links not working with Author but works with Editor (3 posts)

    When I tried to add a "href='file://local-network/filename.ext'" as an Author, WP removes the "file:" part. When I tried as an Editor, the link works correctly. Is there a way to fix it so the Author works similar to the Editor when adding file links?

    Thanks in advance.

    "href='file://local-network/filename.ext'"

    no

    you should not link to files that way

    http://localhost/filename.ext
    http://127.127.127.1/filename.ext

    or better yet upload the file to your media gallery if you can.. you can add file types to your media gallery
