File Gallery

 File Gallery
The file gallery is used to store and organize the files that you want to make available for download (PDF, XSL, ZIP, etc.). Files intended for sale (immaterial sales, such as MP3 or large images using high-definition photography) must also be stored in the file gallery.

Supported formats: .pdf, .doc, .xls, .txt, .zip, .swf, .html, .css, .js, .png, .mid, .wav, .mp3, .mov, .mpeg, .avi, .wmv
Maximum file size: from 10 to 12 MB according to the speed of your Internet connection
Access path to a file: /Files/XXXXX/file.pdf (where XXXXX is your account number)

To load a new file, click on the [Add] button. A new page is displayed and asks you to enter a name, gives you the possibility to classify the file in a category (if you have existing categories), and asks you to select a file from your hard drive. If your browser displays a blank zone allowing you to enter a name, don't use it. Click on the grey [Browse] button and choose a file (.HTM, .PDF, .DOC, .TXT) from one of the directories on your hard drive. Then click on the [Save] button.

To use these uploaded files in your site, all you have to do is select "Open a file" when you are asked to define a navigation behavior.
Uploaded HTML pages are not displayed on the inside of your site, but in a separate window.
They cannot, in any case, replace pages created with WebBlocks, such as the simple home page.

Indeed, because they can be built with any tool capable of generating HTML, the Actinic system is incapable of applying designs to them, of influencing their display or of integrating its browsing system into these pages.

Consider these pages as a way to upload complex documents (PDF files, DOC files, Excel files, Word, PowerPoint exported in HTML format, etc.).
 Note about the use of images in uploaded HTML pages
If you reference images in the HTML pages that you want to upload, you must respect the following rules:
  • In the HTML page, always reference you images in a relative manner by placing them in the same directory as the HTML file that you're working on.
  • The HTML syntax is <IMG src="MyImage.gif">
  • DO NOT, in any case, use paths including subdirectories, such as <IMG src="MyImages/MyImage.gif">
  • If you want to use images while leaving them on another server, you can use the following syntax: <IMG src="http://www.AnotherSite/TheirImages/TheirImage.gif">. However, you must be aware that if the site that you are referencing has destroyed or renamed this image, your site will not be able to display it!
  • You must upload the images that you reference to your image gallery so that they will be displayed correctly.
  • Warning! Be careful not to use file names that are unauthorized for use on the Web (names containing spaces, underscores, accented letters, etc.). The system that manages the image gallery will automatically change these file names so that they are compatible with all Internet browsers. This means that they will have a different name than the one you have used in the HTML page. As a general rule, limit yourself to numbers and uppercase/lowercase letters.
