Hyperlink not working

Dear reader,

I want to create a hyperlink to a web page in the the ‘hint’ section with:

However, I receive the following error using https://getodk.org/xlsform/:


While I do the same as in I would like to add a hyperlink to a question. Is it possible with KoBo?.

Could anyone enlighten me what is going wrong?

Many thanks!

It is probably the $ in the link, this is a reserved symbol in Kobo syntax.
You may try to mask it with \ before, i.e. …\$ …

Dear Wroos,

Thanks for your reply. I just found out that I placed the hyperlink in the ‘calculation’ section. Somehow, you get somewhere a ‘$’ if you do that… When I placed it in the ‘hint’ column, it works fine!
