i'm thinking about making things like [file.jpg] and having a thumbnail shown, without using javascript.

in 2.0, %item-url% was an url with full path.
now it is relative thus you can do things like <img src='thumbs/%item-url%'>  ...hiding the thumbs folder.

there is also another way to do the job, like using thumb_%item-url% files and using a files filter to hide the thumbnails \thumb_*
you decide

Thankyou!!

Thumbnails would be great but make it an option for each folder whether or not to display thumbnails.

Also, just one sudgestion, could you please make 'Hide extensions in listing' available for individual folders instead of all of them so for example I could have one folder display the extension but the other folder does not display the extension.

Thanks again.

rejetto,

1. the ~files.lst command of f.e. http://10.0.0.150/D/~files.lst displays only the host and misses /folder(s): http://10.0.0.150index.html
Did you change the %encoded-folder% symbol?

Yes I'm sure many people would like it but for example just say you keep a folder for music you don't wan't the file extension shown but and other folder for just random files you may want the file extension shown so new people can see what type of file it is.

Also, what ~GeeS~ said is true. When you click 'File List' it misses the /folder(s) part.

gees, wonderful job on the wiki... but i think it is better to not document features of 2.1 before it is released, or anyway specify what is 2.1-only

Please don't mention it. It's a honour to be able to contribute to such an important piece of free and opensource software.
You are right, the wiki should refer to version 2.0final. I've already marked the 2.1beta specific addons.

several users requested the option "Hide extensions" and ANTS wrote:

I don't need "Hide extensions" or even want to use this option!
 
HFS is a tool for easy sharing of files, with some very nice and useful additional options. HFS therefore is more convenient than a ftp server and can also be used for serving webpages. In fact, it is a file- and webserver with an extremely easy setup, ideal for WIN users.
But we should distinguish between the filesystem and webpages part!
Why should we hide the extensions of the files in the filesytem we offer our visitors for download?
I always want to know, what the file is I download and don't want to see a file displayed as music.mp3  when i'm exploring the filesystem, which then in fact is music.mp3.bat.
Do you hide the file extensions in your windows explorer? That's one of the first options I switch of on every box i'm working with, because I want to know what's going on. Ok, ok, your intentions are good  ... you don't want to bore your visitors with the repeating .mp3 extension, but present with a nice "Artist - Title" list in your filesystem.
For this purpose webpages (webpage_with_hyperlinks.html as item in a filesystem = webserver) were invented. Webpages are the GUI of the underlying filesystem and the filesystem contains the raw items for the webpages.

Use a HTML editor for full customized & designed pages or just copy the html from your browser, edit the extensions away, comment them and link to your files for download and also put a link to the filesystem for vistors, who choose to look at all folders and files and want browse them in the filesystem.
With other words: you can share all your files with HFS without knowing any html, but if you want to display sophisticated customized pages, you should code/copy&modify them yourself with some basic knowledge of HTML or a HTML editor. Webpage design would exceed the scope of HFS.

This is not intended to have critics on this specific proposal, but just a reminder to implement options carefully. Many options of HFS are very useful and have been implemented thanks to proposals from this community.

+ symbol ~nodefault to skip the default file
This is another example of an option, which imho deserves some rethinking:
When an HFS admin decides to show a webpage instead of the filesystem, the admin decides to serve "webpage_with_links_to_files.html" with the menu option "Default file". Only the HFS admin has the right to make this decision and also has to face the consequences for the design of the resulting webpages and filesystem. But with the new ~nodefault command, any client can overrule the admins decision by appending ~nodefault in the browser's address line!

i get your point: it is important to disable listing if you want to.
but if you have this need you can always use the options hide/hide tree/let browse.

I'm going to agree with ~Gees~ and although I get your point Rejetto, I think ~Gees~ is right and I believe the ~nodefult shouldbe removed.

I think that there is a bug with the "New link" function.  
The link don't open correctly...
Do you have the same problem?
