Bug reports / Re: Unable to archive/download all

You can use the .exec macro to run a batch file, which creates copies or archives. 

batch command for multi-tasking is in this format (so the program doesn't wait until the command finishes)
start "" "program.exe" -o options

In this case, program.exe is your choice of copy or command line zip utility.
For an example of batch file, see my WatchCat script (signature link)

If you have the movies in generally browser-compatible basic mp4, then the movie playback is made simple (with the built-in HTML5 player which is in every up-to date browser).   

The trouble is that .mkv, hevc, x265 types may need to be Transcoded to simpler .mp4 (any format that browsers can play natively); and you'd need a movie data-rate (perhaps in the range of  600 to 800 kbits) that doesn't swamp your connection.  But, after the hurdle is cleared, native playback can make the rest of the job much easier. 

The good news is that 'most' of the files are probably browser-compatible already. 

For a conservative data-rate with .mp4, you'd want to crop to 16:9 before/while transcoding so that quality of the viewable area is maximized--particularly, it is the wide-screen movies that need to be cropped to fit so they still look good after transcoding to .mp4 (of conservative size).

P.S.  When I try this with the easy-to-use Stripes template, compatible movie files open in the browser (when HFS is set to open mp4 type in browser:  menu > other > open directly in browser).   See also mime types menu. 

It looks like an expansion of the typical feature of web and ftp servers--the ability to set webroot to a real folder (folder is C:\web (example) but link is /).  The values are stored in web server's data file.  HFS has this, except more capacity to store more links.

Try this method:
 At HFS console, press F7, and add user accounts there first.

...When I try to access a folder...
I wonder if the login script of the Stripes template would do differently?  That was recently revised to go into the folder. 

If that doesn't do it, next step after, would be reset hfs settings (menu > save options > clear options) and then save settings to file (menu > save options > to file), and then put the usernames back in.  EDIT: At HFS console, press F7 and add user accounts there first.
If you went back-and-forth between HFS2.3 and HFS2.4, then it is possible that the VFS has a glitch (to clear it, menu > clear file system). 

P.P.S.  One place to make a real folder is a bit hidden.  That is the root of VFS (house icon)--right click and bind to real folder (usually just a new empty folder on the hard drive).  I just mentioned that because it helps the speed if all folders are real folders.

Here is the events file that I use to cause caching
At hfs console, press Alt+F6 to edit events file
Code: [Select]
{.if|{.match|*.jpg;*.JPG;*.jpeg;*.gif;*.png;*.ico;*.mp3;*.mp4;*.mkv;/*img*;*.js|%url%.}|{:{.add header|Cache-Control: public, max-age=604800.}{.add header|Vary: Accept-Encoding.}:}.}

for no cache {.add header|Cache-Control: no-cache, max-age=0.}

...the file can be only accessed by a specific IP...
At HFS console, press alt+f6 to edit events file, and add this:
Code: [Select]
replace  myparticularfile.doc  with target file name (to block for most)
replace  with target IP address (to allow for one)

P.S. Other options instead of  myparticularfile.doc may be /folder* or *.doc and you can even add to the list, such as myparticularfile.doc;myotherfile.txt;*.pdf with semicolon in-between. 

P.P.S. If this method seems clunky, then you could use the more normal and flexible users/groups/passwords, located in hfs menu > other options > user accounts.  And, then you can right-click on a particular folder/file to set it private to your users/groups.

...a variable is defined by its name which can include letters or numbers and preceded by # to become a global variable
just include %ip% in the name
{.set|#flag_%ip%| ....   .}
Thanks Mars! 

It works:

For QOS purpose, I had few questions...

Are there some per ip-specific measurements?
How to make global variable apply to only 1 ip? 

something like these:?
set or get #^flag_this_ip

Some templates have extra features (such as thumbnails) that are not good in high-load conditions.  It is good to make a bypass macro to temporarily streamline the template (without extras) to lighten the load.  If global measure is used for traffic shaping, then 1 miscreant affects everyone (this is anti-QOS); so, for QOS function, it may be better if feature-bypass macro targeted the specific overdoing IP address. 
I don't know; but, if the per-ip measures are available, then I could test it.

How do you like it?
Code: [Select]
[not found]
{.add header|Cache-Control: no-cache, max-age=0.}{.if|{.=|{.cut|-1||%url%.}|/.}
<!DOCTYPE html><html><head><meta charset="UTF-8"><meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="1;URL={.decodeuri|{.urlvar|path.}.}"><TITLE>404</TITLE><link rel="icon" href="data:,">
</head><body><center><h2><br>File Not Found.</h2>Returning to previous page...</center></body></html>
For missing Folder, a valid folder is quickly found.  (the user is not lost)
For missing File, right-click+save-as does Not generate a corrupt file. (browser has 404.htm)

A complete set of quality-control error pages, can be found in the Throwback and Stripes templates. 
Thanks to Mars and Naitlee

HTML & templates / The Throwback template. Updated!
« on: April 23, 2021, 02:04:48 PM »
The new files are available at Post#1
(previous version was put into

For Throwback14v6:
+ Icon update so that the features are easier
+ New error-redirection pages for file integrity
+ HFS2.4 version login gets the right target
+ More responsive on phone/tablet screens
+ Photoviewer/slideshow has image file name
+ Musicplayer: mp3, m4a, ogg, aac, wma, flac
+ More ondemand & Less RQ load = even faster
+ Compressed javascript for some data savings
+ Navigation caching for HFS2.3 and HFS2.4 too 

Do feel free to comment...

... it's always much better to attach files here than hosting on external links (since an external file can expire or be removed by external factors).
So, true!  Another lost external link is bmartino1's updates to the Live theme. 

I've no idea why you couldn't post a link from github.  Perhaps it is a new-user hazing filter? 
Looks like the attachments worked.  Welcome to the forum!

Stripes 4.6 is available in classic black; or, modern light color scheme.

Updates include:
Automatic sizing for the phone screen
download integrity in error-mitigation
