Hyperlinks within Pushpin bubbles in Streets & Trips
Shadron
I want to place two or three URLs in the pushpin bubbles for a series of Pushpins I am creating. Trouble is, with some of the more "modern" methods for web programmers to make money, the URLs are getting very long - sometimes upwards of 300 characters. Unfortunately, while the bubbles do accommodate the URLs, the space is tiny, and there is no way to alias the URLs so you can use a simple phrase like "Click here for website" in place of the URL itself; Streets & Trips apparently wants to use the URL for the link text exclusively. The websites being linked to aren't under my control so I can't use the automatic generation feature. I've investigated using URL shortening services, but I need to supply parameters for part of the URL; it is not simply a single static website.

Am I missing something, or is there some undocumented magic that will help me with this?

Hi Shadron, welcome to the forums! As a work-around, could you place into a pushpin bubble a link to a file on your local machine? The file could then contain any number of links: http://www.laptopgpsworld.com/145-pushpin-links-files-folders
