The requirement is that the user can upload a folder, containing static HTML, CSS, JavaScript files, and a link is generated.

So, then I don't want to have any drupal styling whatsoever.

My initial idea

  • Set a specific content type, allow multiple file upload
  • Upload all the files to a specific directory via some kind of rules
  • Access the page at www.example.com/sites/default/files/MYFOLDER/index.html

Do you think this is feasible approach?


File (Field) Paths allows you to specify path using node fields. Using it, you can have node's files in directories like sites/default/files/custom_pages/[nid]/[node_title]/ Just make sure to put .htaccess inside custom_pages folder, one that will allow direct html serving.

Then you can generate link using the very same tokens.

    Feel like this should come with a disclaimer - that module has a lot of bugs in it (currently 101). We used it a while back and it caused us no end of problems that didn't manifest until the site went into production. Unhappy times, be warned :) – Clive May 17 '13 at 10:11
  • I never used it in anything that can be called actual production - maybe that's why it's bugs never bothered me? Oleg: Sorry for providing risky answer, I didn't know the risk. @Clive: thanks, good to know. – Mołot May 17 '13 at 10:17
  • Hi Clive and Molot :) Thanks for taking time to answer me. There are going to be additional follow-up queestions in a a while ! – Oleg Videnov May 17 '13 at 12:26
