I uploaded my project to Dropbox and google drive and keep seeing the HTML code instead of my game. I've tried in Safari and chrome on my iPhone. What am I missing?

Try creating a Public folder in Dropbox and put the game folder inside it then access the index.html file (or if you already have the folder Public in Dropbox, just move the game folder inside it).

On google drive, go to the folder, pick share, share it for everybody, then click the folder, right click the index file and pick "view with google drive viewer" which then pulls up an html file with a preview button at the top. hit preview and that takes you to the url. load that url from wherever.


Okay, that's how I used to do it. but this time, some message popped up telling me how they made something better, I ignored it (whoops!), and now the preview button is not there.

So I'm adding my question for the fine forum folks: where'd my preview button go?

I tried a share folder since it says public folders are only for Dropbox pro. This is why I tried google drive also.

Just found this:

https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2881970?hl=en

which says "With Drive, you can make web resources — like HTML, CSS, and Javascript files — viewable as a website. This feature currently isn't available in the new Google Drive."

Awesome, great! what an improvement!
(sarcasm)

Now trying to find a way to go back to the old google drive...

Well that is weird... I am using Dropbox free and I can do that. I read somewhere (can't remember) that the old users had Public folder by default but now it has to be created manually. I deleted mine A LONG time ago when I first created my Dropbox account (perhaps 3-4 years ago).

All I did (a week ago) was create a new folder then set it to Public and it worked. Perhaps if you try that it work like it did with me?

After getting mad at google drive, I tried with dropbox until I was mad at them too..
I can find no way to set anything "public". Only shareable links which will allow people to download the files, but not view as html.

If anyone can tell us how, it would be much appreciated!

Yeah, those don't work anymore..
Maybe if you made your account once upon a time, I'm not sure, but the word "public" never shows up anywhere on mine.

Public is only for Pro version.

now they tell you to share, which doesn't do the hosting.
