How can I share?

This is probably a very simple question, but I just can't figure it out.  I'd like to share some of my work but I don't know where to upload my files to link the "story.html" file.  I've noticed that some people use Drop Box and I have an account, but when I try to upload all the files and open the "story.html" file, it doesn't work for me. 

Can someone make this really simple for me :)?

Hi Kerri,

If you're just sharing for a test and not as the final output or hosting solution, you could also use Tempshare. You'll want to zip the published for web output, and then you can drag the zipped folder into the section for upload and done! It'll generate a link that you can share with others and it'll expire in 10 days.

After much trail and error I was able to make the Google Drive option work. I kept getting a window of code when I'd try the link but the trick that worked was downloading Google Drive to my computer and publishing the files directly to the drive.  For some reason it wouldn't work when I'd upload them to the drive on the web.

Thanks Joanna for this idea.  I'm so exicted to share!!

Hi John,

I have not yet tried Tempshare (maybe I will at some point), but I had luck using Google Drive with these instructions:

It did take me a few tries.  I think it's a little temperamental about how you upload the files so it can be stressful if you're up against a deadline to share something.  Maybe it just takes practice.

I'm glad you had success!

Leslie - I finally figured out what the problem was with sharing it on Google Drive. I believe the directions are slightly wrong in the post in the first bullet under step 5. The trick for me was renaming the story_HTML5 file to index, not the story html file.
