Help with mapped drives ?

Poster: Inphluence

I can map to files on my network drive by telling it what letter to go to like this


...but !

I can't view it from another computer without pre-mapping the same drive letter on that machine.

Isn't there a way I can use the server name somehow? I've tried different things so far but none have worked.

The only way you'll be able to do this is if you use ../ and ./ to go to current and backwards folders - this eliminates the need for the servername or drive letter

To see it work, Take a copy of the menu download and in the menu_data.js file add this to the main menu:


This will link to the listbased sample in the extras folder.

To get back to where you were you could add this to your listbased menu (index.html):

<li><a href="../../index.htm">Back to Menu Page</a></li>

This is perhaps the only time I would recommend using the ./ and ../ methods - the only caveat is that you must keep track of where you are otherwise you may end up linking to a non existent file

I think you're on the right track. This is what works for me.


Or to open a directory of files in a file explorer window...
