    Default RONKS_KITCHEN_WEB_FILES Directory Missing .pdf Files Problem

    I have a web site that is 72 pages long. In it I call several .pdf files.
    When I publish the Web site, Xara creates a directory containing the names of those .pdf files for downloading (RONKS_KITCHEN_WEB_FILES).

    My problem:

    RONKS_KITCHEN_WEB_FILES Contains the names of only 17 different .pdf files

    I actually call 84 different .pdf files in the website.

    I am then forced to manually upload all of the missing .pdf files to the web site using cPanel File Manager in order for the web site to work properly (no missing file 404 error when attempting to call the missing .pdf file).

    Is this a known "bug"?
    Is it fixed in a future release?
    What Release?

    How did you link to the PDF files that are missing?

    And are the missing PDF files in the same location on your computer that they were when you linked to them at first?

    Also, is your home page index.htm or index.html? I ask because the folder Xara creates on publish is usually named index_html_files.

    Exclamation Re: RONKS_KITCHEN_WEB_FILES Directory Missing .pdf Files Problem

    Wodlik, I would Export Website to a local folder and examine the contents of ronks_kitchen_web_files there.
    Are you sure the folder name is capitalised.

    If your first page filename is ronks_kitchen, the Xara support folder would be lowercase ronks_kitchens_htm_files.

    If you have put all your PDFs separately into a RONKS_KITCHEN_WEB_FILES folder then any linkage to a PDF will have Xara add it into its support folder and not upload RONKS_KITCHEN_WEB_FILES folder and contents.

    You other error message issue may be related to the design file size and what else is using memory at the time you are uploading.

    To get a fuller answer, we will need:
    • Published web address
    • Design File size
    • First page filename

    Web Properties
    Link To File (PDF, AVI, etc.)

    I use the Browse button to select the file location in a sub-directory (Which never changes).

    The home page in Xara is named: index

    On the uploaded Web Site it is named: index.htm

    I have several sub-directories in my website (due to it's large size). Each of those sub-directories has its own unique index.htm
    in every case, Xara creates a file named: RonK's_Kitchen_Web_Files that contains a shortened list of the .pdf files i called.
    Remember, I am using Xara 11.2.5.42127 64 bit.

    My Web Site: ronkskitchen.com

    My Xara file name: RonKs_Kitchen.web

    File size varies, each up to about 105k.

    First page is always named index.

    Questions concerning new Xara V19:

    Is it a yearly subscription of a forever one like my current V11?

    Is there a directory somewhere on-line where I can find lists of bug fixes in V12 through V19? There are several personal "Bugs" I would like to see if they are fixed. The main being "Sticky" Menu's that are longer in length than the screen displaying that drop-down menu. If I make the menu character size small enough to display fully on ANY device, it becomes too tiny to accurately select the correct choice.
    Another is Xara drop down menus that are NOT sorted alphabetically. Many (Names, etc.) are sorted in the order they were created in, making finding an already used name difficult.

    Does V19 have the ability to create a website Search Menu?
    Does V19 have the ability to create a viewer comments section?
    Does V19 have the ability to create its own page visitor counter? I have roughly 35 sub-directory index.htm files that are linked to from the main website index.htm file. I want to create a page counter for each of those 35 individualfiles seems taking advantage of people that give free Page Visitor Counters on-line.

    Wodlik, thank you for this detail.

    I have the same v11 build and this is the process Xara handles external assets.

    You are linking to a local filestore folder that can be named anything.
    Perhaps in the past you saved your design as Ron's_Kitchen.web and then found RonK's_Kitchen_Web_Files and you assumed this was where all your PDFs needed to be. Whatever you call your PDF folder, and where it is, is irrelevant.

    When you pick a local PDF file using Link to file and press OK or Apply, Xara creates a subfolder in %localappdata%\Temp\XaraTempSupportFolders\.
    This sub-folder has a random name like, 3a9dcdbf-08a0-4843-afb1-8d9ecffadea1_files, which will be tied to your design file so it knows where the PDF is stored.
    On Preview, the external assets are added into the index_htm_files folder.

    When you saved your design, as Ronk's_Kitchen.web, it also creates a new folder Ronk's_Kitchen_web_files and your PDF(s) will be in that folder and the XaraTempSupportFolders\3a9dcdbf-08a0-4843-afb1-8d9ecffadea1_files\ folder is purged and deleted.

    What you are probably doing is using the same design filename for each sub-section thinking all the PDFs will then appear in the RonK's_Kitchen_web_files folder but what you are actually doing is replacing the previous one with the current.

    What you need to do is place all your PDFs in a local filestore folder, probably by <topic> sub-folder grouping.
    Each design file needs to have its own unique filename; you can follow a regime of Ron's_Kitchen_<topic>.web.
    Each design file will now have its own external asset folder Ron's_Kitchen_<topic>_web_files.
    When you publish, each server sub-folder will now have its own ..\<topic>\index.htm page with its own ..\<topic>index_htm_files folder containing the correct PDF files.
    <topic> being airfryers, appetizers, ...

    v19 is perpetual two installs per licence.

    Dropdowns for Names are alphabetical.

    Do try the trial.

    Search, Comments and Visitor Stats are typically server-side code as Xara has notserver connectivity.
    Search can be done locally, I did something on this - look in https://www.talkgraphics.com/tags.php?tag=nugget.
    Comments would require server scripting, MySQL & PHP typically. You could use a simple Blog.
    Avoid Visitor Stats Widgets on the page, the visitor doesn't care. Use something like Cloudflare's free offerings.

    Thank you for the info......

    V19 sounds good

    I will give the Trial a go shortly.

    i agree that visitors could give a rat about visitor counts. I would make the counter invisible on the page (I do care about the number of visitors to each section)
