I'm afraid you can't. There are issues with exporting, see my answer in

While the PDF exports, both to document and to map, produces somewhat usable results, you should consider the result of the html export only a raw beginning which needs a lot of processing.

I am also looking forward to a map export to html that preserves the hyperlinks. How about exporting the map as an image (like now) and defining hotspots of all the hyperlinks?
This would be a simple and powerful solution.

I use XMind to draw an overview of a technical installation. Each component has additional information and manuals that are accessible by hyperlinks. I want to make the whole thing public, but it should be read-only and it should be easy to acces. That's why I would prefer such a simple html solution to e.g. Evernote.

I just purchased Xmind pro for the Mac and I don't see any options to export to HTML, Excel, etc.
Also the presentation mode doesn't seem to work either.

Not sure what I gained over the free version without these features working.

You can cheat by creating a node that contains the hyperlink. Since it shows up in the outline, you can highlight it from there, right click it and select GO TO. (cumbersome but works).

What might be even better is to enter the URL like this <a href="">Hyperlink to Example Page</a>

This will show up as a clickable hyperlink in the outline. Better than nothing I guess. This shows how easy this would be to implement within the mind map itself as well. This is extremely basic stuff. Anyways, hope this helps some of you.

In order to open the hyperlink in a new tab, don't forget to insert the target, like so:

<a href="" target="new window">Example Page</a>
