Hi Dana,

If you have HTM files you wish to upload, you do need to have a Silver package to accomplish this. Then, you can link to your HTM file.

I hope I understood your question? Please let me know if I haven't.

I do have a Silver Package, but I still don't know how to link to my .htm file. Where would I upload the file so I can link to it?

Hi Dana,

You can upload the htm file to your File Manager. I'm not clear on what you want to do with your htm file? What are you hoping by linking to the file will do? Are you simply wanting to link to the file so others can download this? Any further information you can provide will be helpful!

I have an HTML file uploaded to my file manager already. It is a map wit hot links to pages in my site. I have also made this into a PDF file. I just need it be on this page:
http://www.gaea-artforall.org/divisio...

Right now I have a slideshare link on the page.

Hanks for your help.

Hi Dana,

It sounds as though adding text link or the physical file to your website. Here are steps for adding a link to your site and adding the PDF to your page. Please pay close attention to #9 of this tutorial: Using the File Manager as it related to adding content from your File Manager to your actual page.

This only provides a link to the file. I want the file to display on my page. It is map of our state with links to pages on the site. I don't want our members to download the file every time, instead I want them to be able to click a link on my map .htm file and go to the correct page.

Thanks for sending me the general information about the File Manager, but it doesn't answer my question. I have had no problem uploading files, making file folders, or giving links to uploaded PDF files in my file manager.

My problem is that I have created an image with links embedded into it. I want that image to display on a page in my site so that people can use it to go to places within my site. I have saved it as both an .htm and a .pdf.

I DO NOT want a link to it, but want it to display on a page. It is a singe photo page as a PDF and I can not use an outside pdf to flash site like flipsnack to make a book of one page.

There are online directions for displaying a pdf on your site, but it does not work on my site. Here is what I have used in an HTML widget and it will not display:


No matter whether I use a windows or a mac computer - I get "missing plugin" and nothing shows. I really need this to work. Thanks for your help.

Hi Dana,

Could you try this code:


<iframe src="resources/htmlfileurl.htm" width="100%" height="400px"></iframe>

This still gives me a blank a window and instead of displaying it, it automatically downloads the map every time I click on the page. I know others have been able to do this, so I don't understand why I am having so many problems with displaying a pdf on one of my pages.

Hello Dana,

If you're wanting to display a PDF, please try using slideshare.net.

Further instructions can be found here.

I hope this works for you!

I have already gone the "slideshare" route and I really would like to have the PDF file display without referring to slideshare. Honestly, I have a silver package and I really expect to be able to display a PDF file without having to use an outside site. It just doesn't look very professional.

I followed your suggestion earlier and inserted this code:


Here is what shows when I save the code:

Hi Dana,

Your code is missing an " after your file name.

It should be as follows:


<iframe src="resources/yourimagefile.htm" width="100%" height="400px"></iframe>


Please also be sure that you're entering the file name exactly as how it's displayed in your File Manager.

Hi Dana.
It's a little difficult to get the overall picture of this but what I am understanding is that you have created a geographical map in PDF format and inserted hyperlinks within that PDF document? Than you have converted this PDF into an HTM file? If this hasn't worked then I suggest that you repeat the process. You can tell if your HTM file is ok by opening it directly in a browser on your computer (not from within the web-site) that will show you the integrity of the file. When I try to look at your file within your file manager I get a broken icon so that could mean a wrong path, a wrong file type, a broken file or a Yola problem.

If in fact the content of the file is in PDF format then you still need to download the PDF onto your page (unless you convert to something like an swf file (Flash) which would not display on various phones and tablets), and this requires the user to have a PDF reader configured on the computer. Have a look at the PDF's around and you will see that the initial process is a download before visualising although it appears integrated.

You do have other options and that is to create an "image map" from another file type be it a jpg or whatever. In this case the image with the hotlinks will open directly and quickly on your page.

Dana,

I think that your htm page is correct (?) but your image address is invalid.

When I checked your page I can see the address details: img name="GAdistrictmaplinksself" src="images/GA-district%20map-links-self.gif"

It is trying to address the image "GA-district%20map-links-self.gif" in a folder called "images" So for this to work you would need to add another sub-folder called images and then include images in the path to the image. Also the image mentioned should be a "gif" file.

"images/GA-district%20map-links-self.gif" is an invalid address with Yola. The address should be "resources/GA-district%20map-links-self.gif" or "resources/images/GA-district%20map-links-self.gif" if you have placed the image into a sub-folder called "images".

I can see that there is an image map coded for so you've done well on that aspect. I think this is easily worked out now and hopefully you should have it up and running quickly.

First, I want to thank all the Yola staff who has tried to help me.

I did finally get a working hot linked map on my site: http://www.gaea-artforall.org/divisio... (and it only took me a month).

I finally used an online site for creating image maps: http://www.image-maps.com

It works great now. Thanks hanging in there with me until I finally got it working.

That's really good Dana. Congratulations and a great project to embark upon.

Hope your site does make the admin aspects a little easier for you from now on.

Your geo/image map is so intuitive I think it will give a good demonstration to many people who wish to highlight geographical areas as the index for information. Just makes so much sense and so easy for your users.

Thank you for the reference for the online creation of image maps. It's a good resource.
