Creating links to databases

Rather than just telling people the address of your server and the names of your databases, you can put direct links to databases into your Web pages.

Note: The links described here only work once the user has installed the Cardbox Client. You should include a link to the Cardbox Client download page somewhere in your Web pages.

The cardbox: link

Create a link in your web page in the usual way, but instead of the prefix http://, use the prefix cardbox://. The format of the link is cardbox://servername/databasename. Here is an example:

Click to open <a href="cardbox://database.cardbox.net/Abstracts (sample)">the sample Abstracts file</a>.
Click to open the sample Abstracts file.
