  • Hello,

    Reason of not having content types in the list:

    1. The Link to Document content types has been added
    2. Feature related to the content types has not been activated

    Since Link to Document is default content type, then reason #1 is probably the most reasonable. You may also select incorrect content types groups, so in that case try to select all content types.

  • I am also facing similar issue. My requirement is to add a external excel sheet link within the content editor web part in SharePoint 2010. I could find it working in test environment and showing pop up for save / open dialog. But in production server / url there is no response after clicking the link.

    I have tried with ( File://\\ServerName\Folder , File:///,  \\ServerName\Folder), but no success for production url.

    Is there any option needs to be taken care of like trusted location or something else. I am asking because same thing is working in test but not in production.

  • A link to a share is just \\servername\sharename, but that isn't SharePoint.  That is directing the client machine there directly.  So, can the same machine having issues in prod get to that path directly?
