BUILD A CATALOGUE TO SHARE WITH MY CUSTOMERS

Idea

Hello, 

my purpose is to build a catalogue to share with all my customers.

My idea is to send a public link to them and allow them to navigate in to the page of my catalogue, every page is a note in evernote.

I can updat my note and tha catalogue is aupdated automatically, fastly and simply.

THE PROBLEM is that every time I click on a link, a new window is opened in the browser! It is not usefull to navigate in a website that for every click opens a new window, isn't it?

Please, can you modify this option? I want that when a I click on a link inside a public note, no new windows must be opened, but i want to navigate inside the same window of the browser.

This is a sample, every time you click on a link, a new window will be opened, it is not good.

Hope my idea is clear.

Hope you help me to realize this.

Tnks a lot

Pasquale S.

Hi.  When I click on your links,  I get a new tab in Firefox - which is also what happens in a website I'm managing in Evernote.  I hadn't considered this as a potential problem - getting new tabs is like a trail of breadcrumbs back to the original page.  It may be though that my browser is set up specifically to do that - I'll have to check with my users.

My Firefox has an Options tab that includes 'open new windows in a new tab instead' - and I'm not sure whether that's a default,  or one that I set.  If it's not the default then I may have to do some editing too!

It's possible to edit HTML code to open links in a variety of ways -HTML a target Attribute - W3Schools - but you won't have any access to edit the code from Evernote.

The app produces your links as "<a href="http://www.evernote.com/l/AAvsOFGmFYRMMKxxTpYJYmCC1DD8DsLLYLs/">HOME</a>" from which it appears that Evernote miss out the 'target' attribute -  the full syntax should be <a href="<http://www.etc>" target="<destination>"><visible text></a>

Not sure how receptive Evernote will be to a request to provide an option for where public links open - it should be (can't believe I'm saying this*) fairly 'easy' to alter the global options so that all public links would be generated to open in the same page / different tab / different window - it would be a new feature,  but likely not a high priority one.  Few people are using Evernote as a content management system (AFAIK) and I'm not sure they would want to encourage that use - more hits on their (Google's) servers vs more folks using Evernote...???

Anyhoo.  I'll vote for this feature request in hopes it attracts some attention.  Meantime there's no way (that I can think of) to alter the code produced - but 1) have you had definite feedback that your customers dislike the way windows are created?  (They may not notice this as a problem,  like I didn't...)  and 2) you could always add a caveat to your home page that "these links will open in a new window unless you set your browser options/ preferences differently".

(The marketing geek in me wants to show that second option as "for your convenience these links will open in a new window unless you set your browser options/ preferences differently" - because we don't want to imply that we don't have a choice in this,  do we?  ^_^)

 

* I hate it when people say "It's an easy fix / bit of code to add..." - Evernote's kind of like a supertanker where someone wants to repaint a tiny patch of hull just above the waterline that would only take a few minutes to touch up... except we're in the middle of an ocean in high seas and doing 17 knots easy...  ;)

Hi Gazumbed, 

tnks for your help :)

I'm not a programmer, so I do not know how hard is to change or add this settings, just, I hope that programmers can understand the situation and do something.

It will be very usefull for me to have this feature, and I guess that, there are many other way to use it, just, thay have to implement to offer another great possibility to a premium user like me and like more others :)

Let's hope and let's wait :)

sorry for my english :P

tnks again

pas

Sorry, that seems to much of a niche function for Evernote.
I can't see Evernote implementing it

I'm with @gazumped in looking at the underlying html code and modifying it for your own needs.
I upvoted too because it opens up a so many possibilities

I understand that not everyone has the skills to implement html changes, but you could hire a programmer/hacker/high-school-student to implement such changes

fwiw  There is a web site ENML editor that lets you edit the html code.  I found simple changes work. You can also export/import to an xml file.

Hi DTLow, 

tnks to you, too.

I used ENML Editor and modified the note in this way

 

 

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<!DOCTYPE en-note SYSTEM "http://xml.evernote.com/pub/enml2.dtd">
<en-note>
 <div>
  <a href="http://www.evernote.com/l/AAvsOFGmFYRMMKxxTpYJYmCC1DD8DsLLYLs/" target="_self">
   HOME
  </a>
 </div>
 <div>
  <a href="http://www.evernote.com/l/AAupDVYhk2dBN6hJUyGBoIvBBnyYcsq9rQo/" target="_self">
   FIRST PAGE
  </a>
 </div>
 <div>
  <a href="http://www.evernote.com/l/AAvbfNt4MBhL9K65ek7npf1S8nXMUOBoCI4/" target="_self">
   SECOND PAGE
  </a>
 </div>
</en-note>

Did you sync your note after changing it?  You need to get the changes to the server,  which produces the web page.

If you did sync,  then Evernote seems to be processing the note again to include it in the public page layout and obviously changes it back... :(
