Adds the <NDL></NDL> tag, that enables rendering "Notes Data Link" (NDL) code as a web accessible link.

Usage edit

  • Edit any page and add an NDL tag according to this scheme:
<NDL>
<REPLICA 85B365A7:0251A0C7>
<VIEW OFAAC7D56C:A8FC874B-ON852563BE:00619639>
<NOTE OF6B6E35F1:C0F257AC-ONC1258288:002433CE>
<HINT>CN=MyHost.com</HINT>
<REM>sampleDB</REM>
</NDL>
  • This will create a link with the name "sampleDB" which directs to "notes://MyHost.com/85B365A7:0251A0C7/85B365A7:0251A0C7/OF6B6E35F1:C0F257AC-ONC1258288:002433CE".
