Web Access – The Navigator and Web Widget
The Navigator is a brandable web page - a window on your site with a unique URL where you can upload, download and manage files on your site. You will find the address for your Navigator on the Control Panel, click on the Site Properties tab. Send this link to your customers or colleagues to provide access to your site.
The Popup Widget
The Popup is a compact version of the Navigator - the same functionality but without the branding. You can insert a few lines of code in your web page to link to the popup. Go to the Site Properties tab on the control panel to get the code for your Popup.
The Embedded Widget
You can embed file
transfer in your web page. Get a snippet of HTML from
the Site Properties tab on the control panel and insert
wherever you want in any web page. Embedded file
transfer looks like this example:
Logging in to the Navigator and Web Widget
The three Web interfaces to your FTP-Stream storage (the
Navigator, the popup client and the Widget) all work in
the same way.
Login using any of the customer logins you created on
the control panel, or using the special login
admin. Customer logins are jailed to their home
folder and will only see files and folders in their own
folder tree, However admin can see into all
folders on the site.
If you have set one of your
logins to be the public login, (Details), when you, or your customers,
access your site you will not need to login and will see
the listing of the files in the home area of the user you set to Public. You can can download the files listed and can
upload. But note that files uploaded may not be immediately visible
see Sharing Mode.
When you have a Public login set, you or your customers
can still login to their own file areas – click
the login link top right.
