Default links to Windows shares on intranet

Hey guys,

I'm having this issue with getting links to shared folders on our intranet to display properly on browsers other than IE. We're currently playing with Drupal 7 CMS, but I had the same issue when we were using Concrete5 CMS. The site we're working on is mostly internal with a few links to outside. What I'm currently trying to do is create a link called "Service Manuals" that either brings up the appropriate shared folder in explorer or a folder list displayed in the browser itself. Either way would suffice for our purposes. If I use IE I can get this to work no problem. However, when I use Chrome or Firefox it won"t display at all either way unless I use an IE compatibility plugin. Has anyone run into a similar situation? I really would like this to work in Chrome or Firefox without any IE plugins. Anyone have any suggestions?

Default Re: links to Windows shares on intranet

what link are you using?

using <a href="smb://path the directory">click here</a> should work

maybe adding the "open with new window" code might help as well

<a target="_blank" href="smb://path%20the%20directory">click here</a>

Thanks for the input guys. Neither worked, but I appreciate the responses nonetheless.
