When hosting a prototype yourself, the external links break - can anyone help?

When hosting a prototype yourself online, the external links go to a redirect page rather than the hotspot URL.
Has anyone come across this problem before, or have an idea of how to solve it?

Hi there,

Sorry to hear that you're running into issues with external links in your Studio prototype. To get a better idea of exactly what's going on here, can you please provide a bit more information?:

  1. The version of Studio that you're using.
  2. If you're able to share publicly, a link to a Studio prototype that you're running into these issues with.
  3. A screencast or screenshot displaying what's going wrong.
  4. A screenshot of the error message that you're seeing.

Hope to get you some answers soon!

Look forward to hearing from you,
