Uploading to SharePoint

I'm trying to upload a published project to SharePoint.  I published the Articulate SL project to the web and then the SharePoint admin tries to cope the files over the SharePoint but 3 files won't copy over: Meta (xml), Story (swf), and Story_unsupported (html).  This is happening with 2 different projects but another Articulate published project copies over just fine.

Any thoughts?

Hi Denise,

I'm not familiar with Sharepoint, also, I'm not sure Owen is still subscribed to this thread but I wanted to point you to a few other threads where users are discussing ways to load and play content from Sharepoint. This one is more general about Storyline and this one is specific to Engage.

I'm not sure why you are renaming the file by changing the file type extension. HTML runs fine on sharepoint and changing file extensions can sometimes break things.

2 solutions have worked well for me in the past with sharepoint:

1) embed the the html page needed for your Articulate project within the Sharepoint .aspx  page (see my prior post above). or

2) Host the whole project in a folder in a sharepoint library and create a link to the html page from your aspx page using the url for the html page based on where you've stored it.

Hope this helps.

I've tried all of these suggestions and I am still running into a problem.  I uploaded the files onto a Sharepoint Document library (but I noticed that one file called external_files was changed into external_ files_).  I use the Page Viewer Webpart and copy the link from the Articulate files in the document library, but I'm not having any luck.  I get either a picture of the folders in the library, or a page can't be displayed error.

Hi Sarah, there is another thread here that includes some steps for doing this in SharePoint.  There are probably other ways as well and the other thing that's important is to get the settings right for who you want / don't want to have access. You'll want to make those access settings to all the files/folders for your output.

Owen, when you upload the "folder" are you uploading as a zipped folder or copying over the individual files?  I'm having fun because SharePoint won't let me upload .swf files and for reasons unknown to our Admin, the upload multiple documents feature is grayed out.  Yeah...fun times.  So, ANY hacks or shortcuts are welcome.

Once upon a time I knew SharePoint much better.  Is there a different path for uploading a folder than a file?  I've only been able to upload files.

When you are in the sharepoint library, you should see a "library tab" under the library tools section.  On that tab, there is an option labeled "open with Explorer".

This opens the library as a folder in MS explorer view. Once you have the folder, you can drag your published storyline folder (and all of its contents) into your sharepoint library.

Owen, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, and did I mention THANK YOU!

If anyone is having trouble loading multiple documents, it turns out this means your ActiveX controls aren't activated.  It's well-documented on Microsoft's SharePoint Tech Forums.  I ended up having to reinstall or update IE and I'm good now.

Still can't upload .swf files, though, and no clue why....

From MSFT: Users with contributor permissions are prevented from uploading files with the following extensions:
ASPX, MASTER, XAP, SWF, JAR, ASMX, ASCX, XSN, & XSF

Users with designer permissions can upload SWF files successfully in SharePoint 2010. More precisely, the "Add and Customize Pages" permission is required.

Does anyone know if the same issue that Owen explained (shown below) exists with SharePoint2007?

"From MSFT: Users with contributor permissions are prevented from uploading files with the following extensions:
