    Trying to do something in Webfronter

    Hello there,

    I am trying to find a quick and easy way to put pictures online on our website... I am hoping to use webfronter - not to make the whole site (well maybe eventually) but to create some pages.

    Currently I have some folders of photos set to thumbnail view which are viewable in fronter. When I publish a page with a link to the photo folder using webfronter, the link no longer works. Is there any way of making this work that you know?

    cheers

    Could it be an authentication/permissions block? Fronter is a bit sensitive about web sites linking to it, though you can link from Fronter to the web site.

    No, currently its all in Webfronter. Nothing linking to or from.. I have made a frontpage in Webfronter which works just fine, then have a link to the pictures folder... It's this link which no longer works...

    Hiya

    This can be done, I have been using Web Fronter for 2 years now, not the best program to get your head around :-) Just putting your images in a folder is not good enough You would have to create a fronter document and then add your images in one by one. Long process if you have allot of images but this is one if not the only way to get them on your web fronter site.

    If you need anymore help feel free to PM me.

    Ah well, that's a shame.
    We have many photos to share and I want to make it a quick and easy operation for teachers to drop them somewhere and for them to be quickly viewable. W have a picasa account but the software can't see through our proxy (last time I checked anyway)

    how about photobucket? Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket

    Host your images on this site, and then use the embed code in the fronter HTML code section of a text box.
