    I have done a search in FAQ but nothing came up in the results. If this has already been asked previously, I apologise.

    I am a complete newbie to this, I have made my web site and posted it and alls well. What I want to do is have a screensaver that I created available for download from the site, but cannot seem to find out how I go about it. I have used Serif webplus 8 to build the site.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. :confused:

    ok first of all i can recommend compressing the file with a program like winzip or winrar (windows) - this will leave you with a .zip file.

    then you simply upload your file somewhere in your public_html directory and link to it...

    for example if you upload your file here:
    /public_html/something.zip

    it will be available to download here:
    www.yourdomain.com/something.zip

    simply going to the link will make browsers automatically download the file, to link to it on your web page you will need to put this code in:
    <A HREF="www.yourdomain.com/something.zip">Download Here!</A>

    Check if the Hotlink protection is disabled... One cliente had the same problem and we fixed doing this!

    Best regards

    Hi Guys.

    Many thanks for your input.

    PHPServers: Did as suggested but it comes up as "this page cannot be found". Any ideas.

    Dsampaio: Can you please let me know where I might find "Hotlink". Thanks.

    Sorry it has taken so long to get back, but my job takes me away for long periods of time at very short notice.

    Roland :confused: :confused:
