Adding a link to a data file in a comment

You can not upload images or other files to a comment, but you can link to a data file that has already been uploaded to the Trove. Each uploaded file is assigned a unique numeric code, for example, 688. You can type the unique code in data markup to create a link to that data file within your comment. For example, to create a link to a file with the unique code 688, you would type the following into your comment at the appropriate location:


To find the unique code for a data file:

  1. Click on the data file to open the file in the browser.
  2. Record the value shown in the title bar for the new window.
  3. The unique code for the data file is the number part of the name of the html file. For example, if the title of the window is displayed as http://yourblog/data/files/27654.html, the unique code for the data file is 27654.
You would therefore enter the following text in your Entry to create a link to that data file:
