Can an swf file be uploaded to hfs?
« on: August 07, 2013, 01:19:45 AM »
I'm using hfs as a website for my radio station & been having fun decking it out but ran into a problem trying to add a player for guests to hear the station which requires an swf file be uploaded to it. Does anyone know if this can be done & how to do it? I'd pay someone to get this done for me if there's any takers, this is a bit over my ability. I'd also like to change the favicon to a custom one, is that possible too? thx

when HFS is working on your computer you don't actually need to "upload".
If you drag & drop files in HFS, they will be available to the end-user.


If you it doesn't work anyway, try posting a link to your page.

thx for that tip, it worked in a roundabout way, I was looking to mount the players on the page but instead  created an image button pop up link for the players then loaded the html file with it's swf & js sub folders for the player into the file folder, copied the url it created for the player html file to the button link & bingo it pops up in a new window.
But on IE the player pops up & for some reason doesn't work & locks up the pop up, no big deal, IE is a crappy browser anyways but maybe the the code I used isn't IE freindly, if anyone can suggest a better code, I'll give it a try. I used this.
<a href="http://my url/Boss%202/Boss%202%20player.html" onclick="javascript:void window.open('http://my url/Boss%202/Boss%202%20player.html','1376777662531','width=550,height=400,toolbar=0,menubar=0,location=0,status=1,scrollbars=1,resizable=1,left=0,top=0');return false;"><img src="http://my url/Boss%202%20player.jpg" border="0" /></a>

Did a similar thing to change the favicon with
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://your url to favicon file/favicon.ico" />
much thx for the assist!
