Add Zip files to a FrontPage Web Page How can I do this? nickbj msg:939046 10:43 am on May 22, 2006 (gmt 0) I need to place Zip files on my site for downloading. I'm using FrontPage 'cos thats what I'm familliar with, but it will not import the zip files... So can anyone tell me how to do it please?

Why bother importing them? Just place them in your web and FTP them if FP doesn't publish them. 4hero msg:939048 6:22 pm on May 22, 2006 (gmt 0)
dont know anything about frontpage, but just upload the zip files and place the following into your html:
<a href="path/to/your/ZipFile.zip">Download the Zip file</a>
and replace the path/to.. with the correct path.

Thanks for the response guys. I've got it sussed! Created a new folder (Zip) inside the public html folder - in cPanelx, and uploaded into that. Took the url of each of the zip files, and used that in the hyperlink. Slow loading to the site at this time of day (Half of the USA on line I expect) - but it works like a dream. Now... another 40-odd files to go... Cheers, Nick. bill msg:939050 5:05 am on May 23, 2006 (gmt 0)
Glad you got it sorted. I still think FTP would have been faster. ;)
I still don't understand why FP wasn't handling ZIP files for you. I have plenty in an FP web and don't recall even a hiccup.

Hi Bill, I don't understand that one either... FP just flashed up a box saying "Unable to translate code." - Beats me... Never mind. Job done. Cheers , Nick.
