List contents of a directory

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
Pardon me if this has been asked before or if this is too basic.  I'm am the
webmaster for my church's website which is done in FP (please refrain from
tossing rotten eggs at me.)

The powers that be would like to post the church newsletter on the site,
which in itself is not hard.  I've created a directory for the newsletter
(ex.  With my previous host, I could simply go
to the subdirectory and see the contents, however my current host pops up a
huge 403:Forbidden message which says that the attempt to access the
directory should not be repeated.

I put an index.htm page in that folder, and it appears fine.  What I'd like
to do is have it display the contents of the directory dynamically and have
links to each newsletter.  I know how to do it manually, but would rather it
be automatic so the secretary can upload the file and I won't have to
manually update the page.

Any help is appreciated.

The church (even God Himself maybe) has expressly forbidden this.
You or the church can change this via a .htaccess doc on the
server. read about it at:

But only if your church is using Apache as the server

Some hosts configure their servers not to allow anonymous directory access.  
Personally, I think it's a good idea.

Infinity has its limits.
