Odyssey: a href to files on my storage. How?

For the longest time I have used [Project][Open File] to get a starting place for the html files on my disk storage.

I can write links that work if don't use file://, but only as long my links thereafter do not cite either http[s]:// or file://. Furthermore, it is only useful for starting at the top of a tree, but NOT if that starting point is at the root of a volume (Work1:a.html for instance).

I have around a 1000 html files for which iBrowse served me very well, but since then, all kinds of strange rules have to followed in order to use browsers (Odyssey being the best one at the moment) with any sensible navigation .. in particular moving from Work1: to Work2: (or the like).

These days I have tools which can go about modifying stuff, but I haven't been able to figure out what to change it to.

I tried out quite a few possibilities (about 12 variations) to no avail.

Has anyone faced this issue and have a scheme that is explainable? I know these things can depend on one slight syntax change, but I haven't found such a thing.

I do not have THAT kind of problem with tooling around the internet.

When you do open a document this way, what does it say in the URL address field? (Please note the exact spelling.)

It has been 2 years, OK? I will answer more fully tomorrow? I still have 8 hours of programming to do from here at home yet today for my employer.

Just understand that my setup started last century and I was/am loathe to move everything "down into a tree on one storage device". Your solution is certainly an advantage when starting. I advise you to make a mock up of linked html files and then try it out on as many browsers that admit to the existence of the Amiga file system as you can find.

Pick html file placements that satisfies all of them!

Though I complained in 2018, the work I did was in 2011 so no wonder I had trouble finding it. That work is out of date, so I did it again for the Odessey 1.23 and the netSurf 3.10. Doing those 2 was way more work than I remembered.

See http://cjwyche.org/2020/20200725/test1.html

What you see is for show. There are no useful links unless you happen to have a Work1: and a miscellaneous test0.html there.

I will await your questions before I annotate it further. Since NO Amiga browser is upto normal every day, every way, use with the internet, I didn't seek out other browsers unless you have specific ones in mind. Doing additional ones shouldn't be a lot of trouble if you get back to me within a couple months. I ditched the old iBrowse quite a while ago. I haven't paid for the new one.

As others have pointed out you CAN use either browser's "Open Local File", but I have many such files to be referenced by links in other html files, so that observation hasn't been useful.

This is not an overall critique of Amiga browsers, but just how to allow reference to html files stored in the root of a partition.
