Awsome-O'Sean, I have uploaded everything now expect the toolbar itself. The toolbar is an exe extension and the upload area is saying it can not upload exe extensions. So now how can I do this?

Hi Desiree,

Could you explain to me exactly what it is you are trying to do? PAD(Portable application descriptor) files are xml files that are used by software authors to provide product descriptions to online sources.

Websites should never require exe files - for safety and security reasons.

If you could post some more info or let me take a look at what you are doing, I could possibly find a work around.

Regards,
Sean

Okay. I created a toolbar for download. I want to be able to have it for direct download on my site. Here is the toolbar link. http://mlmleads.ourtoolbar.com/. I can have the toolbar point to that site BUT that won't help a specific strategy I am using so I need to be able to up load the file to the file manager so I can put it on my site for download. Everything else is upload and in the file manager that I need.

Thanks

Okay, I see.

Unfortunately we don't allow exe or most other potentially dangerous executable file types, but you could ZIP the exe file and upload that.

Hope this helps.

Yip, once you've zipped your file, you can upload it to Yola and allow your users to download it.

That should work for what you are trying to do.

Let me know if you have any issues.

Okay now I've run into another issue, maybe you can help solve? Checking my pad file creation and links back to my site. Errors with the following.

http://www.sponsor1000MLMReps.com/too...
http://www.sponsor1000MLMReps.com/too...
http://www.sponsor1000MLMReps.com/too...
http://www.sponsor1000MLMReps.com/too...

IE is saying can't be found. The main site www.sponsor1000MLMReps.com opens fine, but everything with "toolbar" isn't so I don't know IF because I don't have the FTP access it is not reading it OR I have to 1st tell it "File Manger" than "Toolbar".

Thanks
