indexsoft Site-UP configuration parameters
Starting with version 2.0 indexsoft Site-UP is powered by indexsoft configurator. All configuration parameters gathered and described in detail in one place. To run indexsoft Site-UP configuration mode click 'configure' link at the bottom of the main Site-UP window.
The URL of the website
The URL of the directory specified below. In most cases this is detected automatically. You do not need to specify the ending slash '/' (i.e. http://www.indexsoft.com).
The actual path to the root directory of the website
In most cases this is detected automatically. You do not need to specify the ending slash (i.e. /home/public_html).
Select color theme/language
Select desired language or color theme.
How to use selected theme
By default indexsoft Site-UP loads templates each time they are needed. You can change this parameter to store all templates into memory.
Template files extension
Indexsoft Site-UP uses files with 'html' extensions as templates. This parameter is read only.
Here you must specify the URL of the directory where the editor is installed. By default, this parameter equals 'htmlarea', but if you installed the editor to a directory different from the directory of the Indexsoft Site-UP installation, you must specify the correct URL to it here. For example, if you have installed Indexsoft Site-UP to the 'cgi-bin' directory of your website, the HTMLArea editor (the 'htmlarea' directory) should be copied to the document root directory of the website. In this case specified here '/htmlarea' (the use of http://my_domain is optional).
External stylesheet URL
If your site has an external stylesheet, specify its URL here. This will allow you to view the documents being edited exactly the same as they look on the pages of your website.
Stylesheet to use in the editor toolbar
This parameter describes styles that are defined in the external stylesheet so that they could be used when editing a page (see the 'External stylesheet URL' parameter). Even if the URL of the stylesheet is specified in the 'External stylesheet URL', you must prepare the list of styles for the editor toolbar to use the styles defined in that stylesheet when designing a page. One line for one style definition should be specified in the following format: custom_style1, headline.
Styles for the document editing window
Additionally you can specify styles for the document editing window.
Beginning of the HTML fragment and End of the HTML fragment
This parameter and parameter below contain special keywords from the documents that will be edited in the WYSIWYG mode. Those key words denote the beginning and the end of the HTML fragment to be edited. If you use Indexsoft Site-UP for editing 'pure' HTML documents (containing only HTML code), these parameters must have the values <body[^<>]*> and <\/body *> respectively (the default values), because it is the tags <body> and </body> that denote the body of an HTML document. On the other hand it is difficult to find a website consisting only of static HTML documents. For instance, if the site is built using the SSI technology, it is sure to have lines like this: <!--#include virtual="/ssi/header.html"--> and <!--#include virtual="/ssi/footer.html"-->. By providing these parameters with these values you can denote the HTML fragment, which is contained between these lines and available for editing in the WYSIWYG mode. Everything that is before the keyword specified in this parameter and after the keyword specified in the parameter below will not be viewable in the window of the WYSIWYG editor, but it will be available for editing in the text mode. Like in the previous example with SSI directives, your documents may contain HTML, Perl or PHP (depending on the document type) comments, that will constitute the values for these variables and denote HTML fragments contained in those documents. The values of these parameters are used in regular expressions, so you can use multiple values separated by '|'. For example: <body[^<>]*>|<!--#include virtual="/ssi/header.html"--> and <\/body *>|<!--#include virtual="/ssi/footer.html"-->.
When Indexsoft Site-UP creates files, it will automatically set the access rights to those files according to the value specified here.
Same as above, but for directories.
HTML file extensions
The list of HTML file extensions separated by commas and without a period before the extension. If the extension of a file coincides with an extension from this list, the WYSIWYG editor will be launched by default when editing such a file.
Text file extensions
The list of text file extensions separated by commas and without a period before the extension. If the extension of a file coincides with an extension from this list, the text editor will be launched by default when editing such a file.
XML file extensions
The list of XML file extensions separated by commas and without a period before the extension. If the extension of a file coincides with an extension from this list, the XML viewer will be launched by default when open such a file.
Image file extensions
The list of image file extensions separated by commas and without a period before the extension. If the extension of a file coincides with an extension from this list, the pre-view mode will be automatically started for such files. When using the WYSIWYG editor, the files having the extension specified here can be inserted as images in the document being edited at the moment.
Ignore file extensions
The list of file extensions separated by commas and without a period before the extension that will be ignored by Indexsoft Site-UP when viewing the list of files in a directory. Such files will not be shown in the file lists in the menu and in the main window of Indexsoft Site-UP. But these files will be shown in the file search results in case the file name coincides with the submitted search mask.
The same as ignore file extensions, but contains the names of directories.
Indexsoft Site-UP allows you to quickly rename or copy any file to the file with the same name, but with the extension specified here.
Default template for new file
Default archiver for Windows OS
This parameter specifies the archiver and the keys for creating archives in a Windows OS. You should use the following key words as parameters: %archive_name% - the name of the archive and %files_list% - the list of files and directories to be archived.
Default archiver for *nix OS
The same as above, but the archiver for a *nix OS is specified. Indexsoft Site-UP will automatically determine in which OS it is running and will use the corresponding archiver
Archive files and commands for unpacking archive files in a Windows OS
This hash contains extensions of archive files and commands for unpacking archive files in a Windows OS having these extensions. As well as for the archivers, you should specify the key words %archive_name% - the name of the archive and %dir_name% - the target directory for the process of unpacking. Files with the extensions included in this hash will be automatically considered archives and the unpacking operation will be available for them.
Archive files and commands for unpacking archive files in a *nix OS
The same as above, but applied in a *nix OS.
Default email address
indexsoft Site-UP can send files via e-mail. By default, the address specified here will be used, although you can always change it before sending files.
SMTP server host
The parameters of the server by which mail is sent and the name of the host and port respectively. For the name of the server, you can specify the name of an external program, e.g.: '|/usr/sbin/sendmail -t'. In this case the '|' symbol at the beginning of the line is mandatory.
SMTP server port
Port 25 used by default.
FTP server host
Here and below are the parameters for accessing an FTP server. These parameters will be used by default when sending files to an FTP server using the FTP protocol. Nevertheless, before sending you can always change any of these parameters.
FTP server port
Port 21 used by default.
FTP user name
User name to login to FTP server.
Default FTP password.
FTP upload directory
Default directory on FTP server.
FTP transfer mode
Active or passive FTP transfer mode will be used by default.
Prompt for the target directory
If this parameter is set to 'prompt', Indexsoft Site-UP will ask you for the target directory for the operation. By default the directory selected in the menu is used as the target directory for the basic operations (copy, rename/move, save, create symbolic links, download). This mode will be useful for beginners. If this parameter is set to 'no', the directory selected in the menu will be always used as the target directory for the operation without any prompt.
Auto change menu directory
In Indexsoft Site-UP you can browse through directories using both the menu and the main window. If you are browsing in the main window and this parameter is set to 'change', when the directory is changed in the main window, it will also be changed in the menu. This mode will also be useful for beginners. If the parameter is set to 'no', there will be no automatic synchronization of directories in the menu and in the main window.
By default, the Indexsoft Site-UP menu is to the left side of the window. If it is more comfortable for you to work with the menu on your right, set this parameter to 'right'.
Show errors in the browser window
If an error occurs in the external programs Indexsoft Site-UP has launched (e.g. archivers, files or commands) and if the parameter is set to 'show', you will see the error message in the browser window. Set this parameter to 'no' if Indexsoft Site-UP is running on a computer with Windows 9X or ME OS (not NT).
