HTML & templates / More UI work. Looking for ideas.
« Last post by danny on Today at 01:54:34 PM »
The menu banner at the top works fine on the phone. 
However, when it expands to fill the wide PC screen, then end-users don't see the features. 

My son didn't spot the file search box for 1/3rd of a year.  Probably has looked at it many times, And hasn't seen it yet.

Developers spend much time; However, end-users skim-read in a portion of a second. 
So, the end-users literally 'can't see' some features. 

Previous UI challenges because of the user skim-reading behavior:
1). Any error message = 'it has death--do not use' (this is fixed, since v4)
2). Too many options = 'can't tell what its for--no focus' (this is fixed, since v7)
3). Screen too empty = 'it is blank/nothing-here' (this is fixed since .98, v10, vTS)

Current UI challenges:
4). Minority of end-users thought it was for reading, unaware they should download files (wt?).
5). On the PC screen, menu items and functions too far into the corners are ignored (didn't see).
6). Majority of end users are still unaware that they could or should upload files (didn't see). 

Since the current challenges aren't a problem with the phone screen, perhaps a narrow width header is called for? 
Top-center menu?  Even larger fonts?  Any suggestions?

HTML & templates / Re: Responsive small screen template - audioplayer
« Last post by danny on Today at 01:25:57 PM »
it's not a bug, it's a feature. It later remembers last playing position.
But on shuffle play it's make no sense (I disabled it on shuffle play)
changelog:
  • fixed Starts playing in the middle of a file on shuffleplay
  • add sleep timer in s  ?300
That works much better!   Only problem is that it stopped playing at the end of the playlist (you wouldn't want an internet radio that stops).  Can we get a playlist-repeat?

Yes, it's true. I'm glad you also found this error. I've already reported that "hfs.diff.tpl" doesn't work on root HERE, but I didn't get any reply about it. The normal behavior is that "hfs.diff.tpl" should work on root too. I hope Rejetto get attention to this.

looks like you guys may have already answered or solved it. ive foi d that if you dont bind folder to root.

so hfs main directory tree 8s set to a primary folder and dif tpl is i  that folder.

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / Re: Access problems
« Last post by Chris Harris on June 22, 2019, 12:20:21 PM »
I found the problem; it was the ports on the Windows Firewall.
But the real problem was when I upgraded to the latest beta. I had the beta saved as hfs24b6.exe. I executed the program . Everything was working but the firewall  was for the old version. It seems that I should have replaced the old version with the new one; not executed the new version elsewhere!

Thanks to everyone for their assistance.

The audio player is working mostly well.  There's one little bug:  Starts playing in the middle of a file, which happens if: 1). play the folder, 2). refresh, 3). play the folder again.

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / Re: Is there any way to filter the file by the comment?
« Last post by rejetto on June 22, 2019, 10:03:31 AM »
it's not a feature HFS gives you, but i think it's technically possible using diff template and a user group.
I wouldn't advice trying unless you are practical with "computer languages".
I'll leave you some draft stuff that needs some more work probably

Code: [Select]
[file]
{.if| {.and|%item-comment% = ban| {.member of| my-special-group-of-users.} /and.} |
{.section|file|back=1.}
/if.}

omething like this would go in the diff template of the home item

if it doesn't work even inside your local network, then it must be the windows (or other) firewall. Check that

One other thing--I forgot to mention that it is preferable if a shuffle player repeats playlist, until the user stops it, very similar to an internet radio's function.

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / Update and Self Test not working
« Last post by The Engineer on June 22, 2019, 12:31:22 AM »
Not sure what's going on. Manual and Auto Update search says Network Error, Request failed. This has been working perfectly since 2.3m came out. Might be coincidental with latest Win10 update. Firewall and router checked. External access to Server function works. What port does Update search use? Also Self Test says test is unavailable at the moment.
cheers

HTML & templates / Using this at home

Throwback10media has photo thumbnails and DJ's music player. 

I've done some UI work to make the features noticeable to end-users.

As of today, this one is running on my server. 
On those large folders, it performs faster than expected. 

template file can be found at the first post, or http://rejetto.com/forum/index.php?topic=12055.msg1064412#msg1064412
