@bdenford. Thanks for using my module. Are you running Joomla on a Windows web server? Persons with this problem normally are running their site on a windows IIS server. The issue is that Joomla uses “DS” as an alias for “DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR”, which for linux-based web server translates to forward slash or “/”, but for windows based web servers translates to backslash or “”. There isn’t much I can do about it, since Joomla uses it in its code, which I use. However, if you really need to get it working, you could edit the helper.php file and do something similar to: http://support.michaelgilkes.com/topic/hyperlink-to-files-inside-folder#post-114

Have a look at these other posts on the issue: http://support.michaelgilkes.com/tags/backslash
