    I have been dealing with this issue for quite some time now, but for some reason I cannot get it to work.

    Situation: I’m working for a small business and we currently installed a WordPress installation on our QNAP NAS. We want to use it like some kind of Sharepoint. Everything is working, except for the part to link to files on the NAS itself outside of the web environment.

    I used Google a lot and even went to page 2. What I have used:
    file://\\server\folder\document.doc,
    file:///\\server\folder\document.doc,
    file:////\\server\folder\document.doc, and even
    file:////////\\server\folder\document.doc, out of pure frustration.

    WordPress just re-formats them to: <a href="file://server/folder/document.doc"> File </a>

    These seem to work with Chrome with the LocalLinks extension, but that just downloads the file. With Internet Explorer it doesn’t work at all.

    Any suggestions?

  • Apparently you have to add the site to trusted sites in Internet Explorer to get this to work.
