Default HTML links dont work in BB

Please Login to Remove!

hi I am a PHP developer and we have a website running PHP. We send out daily email newsletters to our members.

The emails have links that point them to today's stories and they work fine when you open them on your PC but they don't seem to work in BBs.

Here's a sample link (it's quite long with a bunch of http gets)


Code:
 mywebsite123.com/myarticle.php?articleid=1234&email=hello@myemail.com&urlcode=skdfjhskfhksjdf

are there any special formatting necessart to make html links work in blackberry?


thanks!

You need to use ActiveRichTextField or ActiveAutoTextEditField so links can be recognized.

thanks!

i was resarching about ActiveRichTextField and it seems to be a java class property. I'm not building a java app on BB, i just have some html links on an email that was opened in BB, but the link doesn't work in BB.

What do you mean doesn't work - page formatting is broken or blackberry shows some error or what? If you want somebody to help, be more specific, post precise error description
