How do I Publish

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Thu May 21, 2015 8:25 pm

ImageWhen I try to publish I don't get an HTML file I get and image folder, a blank paper that says app. manifest, what I assume are scripts because the image next to them looks like scrolls, a bunch of icon images and something called offline.apache. I'm using the free version and ever time I export whether to congregate or an app or anything I get these same file. Please help if you can

I can see the index.html file in that folder, so I don't understand what your problem is. You have all the correct exported files, as far as I can see.

They just need hosting on a web server and a link to the index.html will launch your projrct.

Oh so it should work? Ok I tried a couple times and it didn't so I thought since the html file I had looked different from all the ones in tutorials I'd seen it was messed up. Plus if I try and use the html file I it opens up a black screen

Whatever host you are using - for instance Dropbox - then all the files within the folder need to be copied onto the host server.

If something doesn't seem to work, then check the browser console for errors.

Ok thank you
How do I check to see if it works once it's on dropbox?
Sorry I'm kind of a noob here

I would suggest that you read the manual, if you are new, as everything you need is in there.

Here is the section on exporting:
