I have attached some pdf files in some features by using QGIS 3.8. After exporting the .qgs to webmap I am not able to access the hyperlink of the pdf files. It is shown there just as a text.

PS" I tried to use relative path and to put a subfolder within the webmap folder, but it is the same situation.

Is anyone who has experienced something similar?

qgis2web won't automatically export the PDFs themselves. It tries to turn anything appropriate into a clickable hyperlink. So, if you have a field with a relative path to a folder within your export folder, and then copy the PDFs there, it should work. That does sound exactly like what you have tried, though.

  • Thank you for your reply, Tom. I did it, but it doesn't work unfortunately.

  • Best thing to do would be to open an issue at github.com/tomchadwin/qgis2web/issues. You'll be able to upload some of your files there, and we can try to figure out what is going wrong. The main extra detail we need is: in what specific way does it not work? Commented Nov 5, 2019 at 11:09

It worked by adding : "< a target="_blank" href="./Hyperdokumente/Bayern/Kolbermoor/Grundbuchauszug/Grundbuch_Nr_10786.pdf">Open pdf " in an attribute table field.
