Time flies but URL links in presentations posted to Slideshare are still very popular.
Ever since I wrote an article over 3 years ago titled How to activate links in Slideshare I have been receiving emails from people asking me to solve their URL link problems in Slideshare. Today as I uploaded a new file with URL links for a customer, I could not understand why the first 2 URL links were not working while all the rest were fine. After all, the slides and links were similar.
I went back to the Slideshare Help Center, back to the article which also makes a reference to my previous post (thank you Slideshare!). I found a new tip which I had not seen before. This is what it says:
Hyperlinks cannot be on the first three pages of your file
So now you know another reason why your links might not be working. Good luck with your URL links!
