Link from speaker-site doesn't work

Hi :-)
On the single sessions on there is a field for link to slides - should it be to slideshare or is it possible to put in a link to just another page? If it should be able to work with all kind of links then we can't make it works...

Hi Linda, you should be able to put any valid URL into that form field. The best practice is to upload the slides to your site's Media Library, so that you don't have to worry about them going offline in the future.

Can you please let me know the following information?

  1. Which speaker are you trying to add slides for?
  2. What URL are you trying to put in the field?
  3. What happens when you save the post? Do you get an error message, or any other things you wouldn't expect?

  1. Speaker: - this session:
  1. (not slides - just a link to my site about the subject)
  1. Nothing - the session look just like before I added the link - no link on front

Ah, ok, that's actually the expected behavior. Right now the link only shows up in the [sessions] shortcode, not on individual Session posts.

#1163 will add the links to the individual posts as well, but it's waiting on somebody to contribute a patch.
