I am working on a project with Omeka classic . Everything’s works fine except the following and I was not able to found a solution.
We have a lot of datasets and every dataset has a folder with additional material.
It would be nice that this folder can be opened directly from a link which is opening the corresponding folder. The folders and the installation is in a company and is accessible only through the Intranet locally.
When I open the link directly with the browser then I can open the folder without problems.
Embedded in the dataset of Omeka - it is not working.
The link is in the form file:///path/to/folder/foldername
I guess it is difficult for security reasons to mix http and file protocol.
But I guess there must be a solution for this case.
Maybe anybody has a hint, a clue or a solution for this case. And it is possible that this very simple but I tried several things without success.
Ps: Omeka is installed on a qnap server. Hardware and Software newest generation.
The files of the folders is on the same qnap. Omeka is installed in the Web-Directory.
