Not opening in page viewer

Feb 16, 2011 at 2:07 PM

I have installed the web part, added a link list and the Connected page viewer to a page. However when I clock on a link it just redirects the entire page to the URL rather than showing it on the viewer. I have set the Connected page viewer URL to {1} and ticked to connect to links list.

Any idea what the problem could be?

Did you connect the Links list web part to the Page Viewer web part?

I'm not sure how to do that, can you explain?

On the page with the web parts, click Site Actions -> Edit Page.

On the Links web part, click the "edit" button in the web part title bar to pop up the web part actions menu and choose Connections -> Provide Row To and select the Page Viewer web part.

Thanks I have now connected them, but it still opens in the entire window rather than the viewer?

I have got a bit further, it now shows "The website cannot display the page" and URL: {1} above this.

OK, it's working now, thanks for your help.

Do you remember what made this start to work? I've successfully installed and configured it but I get an error still.

Per, did you try setting the option to display the URL?  That will show you what is getting passed in by the connection (if anything).

Yes thanks, it showed "{1}".

What ended up working was changing it to "{URL}". E.g. using the column name instead of the positional parameter. Not sure why {1} didn't work.
