output type is html5, I can not bring this to work when I'm trying like in the V3 tutorial (putting in url in the URL field).

When I try it, it only gaves me: "Error loading panorama xml"

Is this working in V4beta2 ?

Hi,
Please find screen shot of setting of hotspot.

This opens our website from the hotspot.
I have used _blank in the Target field so it opens the web page in a new window or tab depending on how your browser is set up.

The internal links to the other panos are all working normally, is the skin the problem?

The button has:
skin button def

Hi,
You should be using Go To URL not Open Next Panorama in the skin.

recap for the someone who found this by forum search:

As I found, this is the source of many problems I had, if you found this post by searching forum, make sure that you have understood the concept of multiple different hotspot definitions in the skin as this might effect you as soon you use a skin (this is a very potent feature of the whole skin ability).

At the down side, poor documentation and the implicit use of this feature can cause you trouble if you forget about this.
I recommend that you use skin id on every hotspot you define just to make sure that you never lose control or even forget about this.
Grüsse,
Clemens
