Change default story.html and story-html.html

In order to change the alignment of the alignment in our LMS we made some small adjustments in the story.html and story-html5.html files.

This customer uses SL only for content that is published in ther own LMS, so it would be no problem if we change the default html-files.

In the installation directory of the SL program I see all kinds of files that comes with the publicated project (like index_lms.html, player.swf etc.) but I cannot find story.html and story-html5.html.

Hope that somebody can tell me where these files are hidden...

Hi Wendy,

I know, but I want to know where they were before the were placed in the output folder. A lot of the other files in the output folder are copied from the installation directory (in my case C:\Program Files (x86)\Articulate\Articulate Storyline 2), but I cannot find story.html and story-html5.html there.

Hi Chris,

I looked into it and the file that is used to generate the story.html file is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Articulate\Articulate Storyline 2\Content\ and is called player.html. I tried to make a change to it and it is reflected in the published story.html. Make sure to create a backup before making changes though, and be careful what you change, so the customer don't get a bug in every published course!

I have not figured out which of the other files is the template for story_html5.html. Please share if you figure it out!

"with care..." being the key component here Chris! Making changes to the published output could have unintended consequences or potential for mistake, so that's why we're unable to offer support for it.

I'd also suggest that they make a back up copy of the original published output folder before going about these changes...just in case. :)
