I have a Geoserver WMS of point locations with urls in one of its attribute fields. If I do a getFeatureInfo request on this in Qgis, using identify, it just returns a string without hyperlink functionality on the urls. For my application it should be able to link to external websites and open local file folders. Preferably without having to copy and paste. So far, I tried to convert this string to a html link by wrapping it in html-tags, like:
<a href="url" target="_blank">open</a>
As shown in the image the hyperlink tries to open in another instance of QGIS instead of a browser, which fails.
Is there any way to disclose urls in the feature attributes of a WMS in Qgis with working hyperlinks?
