Edit the Home Page of web Server

Post by CaptNemo » Wed Sep 16, 2009 9:10 pm

I was wondering if it was possible to edit the home page of Everything, so that I might put up a notice at my home page for users who might read about updates, and more things...

Currently the layout is fixed.

Only the images and style sheet can be customized.
(See http://www.voidtools.com/Everything/wik ... HTTP_files).

I have added: "Make a customizable html template for the HTTP server" to my "Things to do" list.

The .png files and css file that are linked in this wiki page are linking to "localhost"... I want to be able to download these files so i can customize the search web page... (i'm a new user and these software is great btw!)

If you run a HTTP server you will be able to download these files from your own computer.

To run a HTTP server:
  • In "Everything", from the Tools menu, click Start HTTP Server.
Once you have started a HTTP server, click on the following links to download these files from your own computer:

The wiki example is poorly written and frankly kind of confusing. I have created the "HTTP Server" folder in my programs, where "everything" is; and after restarting and loading "everything" again - I still don't see my edits. (changed logo/favicon, etc)

A screenshot or simply a zip file with all the necessary files would be a brilliant idea.

Love "everything", not liking the poor explanation so much.

Thanks

What this really means is, go to the Everything program, go to Tools > Start HTTP Server
Then from your webbrowser, type in http://localhost
Once you see the icons, please do a right mouse button and save them in a directory called "HTTP Server".
You can also use Notepad and do a file > open to point to the css file, so that you can see it.

As far as getting it actually working with the HTTP Server folder in Program Files, is where you got me. (that is also unclear)

So I installed Everything in C:\Everything and I created the folder in C:\Everything\HTTP Server. I downloaded the main.css file and put this file in C:\Everything\HTTP Server. I edited this file to change the look of the web interface, but none of my changes are visible. How can I customize the CSS file?

Just posting the revised (current) link to Changing the HTTP files.

I created a "HTTP Server" subdirectory to the Everything directory.
Placed a revised file.png into that directory, refreshed my http://localhost/ web page, & it did show the revised file "icon".

Revised main.css:

Code: Select all

from: .maintable tr.d { background-color:#F7F7F7; }
  to: .maintable tr.d { background-color:#00BFFF; }
& that gave me blue/white banding on the filelist instead of gray/white banding.

So looks to be working. (Don't forget to <do a "hard"> refresh <of> the page.)
(And this is with HTTP Server running in Everything.)

Running .451a on my end.


Also note that a "Logs" subdirectory is automatically created.
In HTTP_Server_Log.txt (within Logs) you should see things like:

Code: Select all

04/22/2010 01:08:40 PM: [127.0.0.1] GET /main.css
04/22/2010 01:08:40 PM: [127.0.0.1] Sending file C:\Everything\HTTP Server\main.css
