    Hello, inside a content block - if i link to an internal document using the Document Manager it generates the below code.

    <p><a sfref="[documents|OpenAccessDataProvider]da148791-b1e8-6477-b58f-ff0008709da"
    title="hello there">hello there</a></p>

    As you can see the link it generated includes the full path to the local domain on this machine which is

     When I migrate this online, will it know to change the path and target the internal document on the new domain?

    Hello Steve,

    The links in your content blocks will not automatically update once you change your domain. You will need to alter them yourself. You can follow the approach in this blog post in order to ease this process.
