Problem in creating the story.html link to work on website

I have been have problem in getting my story.html link to work.    This is what I have done.

1)    I put the folder that Publish generates.  I move inside that folder and create a link to story.html.

2)    When I cut and paste that link into my web browser, it doesn't open the html but let me download the file.

I send an e-mail to the website provider and that said that the story.html will not be executed.    There is a copy of that responds from them:

"You can store any file type in OpenDrive. However, files cannot be run within OpenDrive if they require an application or other files to run (in this case, the file has to be run by a browser). When you use a link to access the HTML file, it will be available for download but it will not open as a HTML page. If you would like to link to files (images, videos, mp3 files, etc.) you can create a page on your website and use the links for the files, but the HTML page will not load directly from OpenDrive."

Can you explain how I can make a link that works ??   or tell me what I did wrong ??

Thank You,

Gary

I know that your tempshare website works with certain web browser.  

I was trying to do the same thing myself in dropbox.    I put my folder on the dropbox and make a link to story.html

When I put that link in the web browser, it takes to to the story.html, but it shows me the html coding of story.html and it didn't execute it.   What do I need to do to get it to execute ?

Hi Gary,

It sounds like your content hasn't completely uploaded to Dropbox.  It can take several minutes depending upon your internet connection for all of the required files to upload to Dropbox.  Only after all of the files have uploaded will the content work as expected.
