    What is the big point of it? It is very easy to create a page like this by yourself, and if you use this program, your list will look redundant.

    Indeed it is easy to create a page like this without using this program. But I just wanted a nifty GUI to edit my Page. And well, I wanted to share it.
    But I also recommend that if you have at least some basic HTML knowledge, you should create it on your own. This is mainly meant for beginners.

    Well, it shouldnt be dangerous...
    However, some programs like Norton have a whitelist for programs ans dont except new ones. I have it too.
    However you can download the jar just fine thats why I also included that. And then you can just run the file using Java.

    And to host your Download Page on Dropbox:
    1. Create a folder
    2. Move your .html Document into this folder
    3. Click on "Share"
    4. Copy the given link to your clipboard
    5. Then replace www. with dl.

    What kind of 'mistakes'? Typos?
    You can edit your Projects by simply selecting them in the List. To remove a Project you have to delete the .project file.

    No problem.
    But why did you copy my post :?

    And what do you mean with zip or file?
    The Application will create a .html document for you.

    And it doesnt even have anything to do with a resource pack...
    If you need help setting it up, create a Thread.

    However you just need to upload the .zip to Dropbox click share link and copy the given link. Then go to your server.properties and paste the link into the field resource-pack or so.

    A few comments regarding your HTML:
    • Generated output should contain an appropriate HTML doctype declaration.
    • <title> element should appear in <head> element (which itself should appear within the <html> element).
    • Actual page content should appear in a <body> element which should appear after the <head> element.
    • The bgcolor attribute, as used on the body element and a number of <tr> elements is deprecated. CSS should be used for styling instead.
    • Inline CSS should be avoided. If you're aiming for a HTML page that works on its own, look into using a <style> element.
    • The <html> element should be properly closed
    • A paragraph element (<p>) should only contain phrasing content.
    • The <link> element must have a parent element which can contain metadata elements. For example, <head> (the document metadata container element)
    • The href attribute of the <link> element hotlinks another site's favicon. Further, the URL is not protocol relative.
    • The <font> element is non-standard and should not be used.
    • It doesn't make sense to apply a text-shadow style on a <head> element and furthermore such styling should go in (ideally) an external stylesheet.
    • The border attribute of the <table> element should not be used.
    • There are 42 validator errors when checking the document as HTML5.
    A few comments regarding your styling:
    • I do not regard myself as a designer but I have some thoughts as a user on the overall styling of the page:
      • The chiseled outer border on the table is, in my opinion, ugly.
      • I think similarly for the cell borders.

    Well, I never used HTML before as you probably already assumed.
    But I will take my time to fix all of these issues.

    Oh! You can publicize your drop box content, I forgot!

    And, just wondering, what does dl. vs www. have to do with it? Is it the name of the Html doc?

    bwfcwalshy Retired Staff

    @awesone_ness www will link to something else (I believe download) and dl links to preview. So you can see as dl. But not www.
