Hello!

Is there a way to add css styles to index pages (in directories where no index.html file exists) to make them a bit more attractive, include an image, at least use a sans-serif font.. &c..?

thanks!

If you don't have 'index.html' or some other default document, then you don't have an 'index page'.  If you're talking about the directory listing that sometimes shows, that is not a 'page' as such but a listing generated by the web server.  I don't think you can style it because I don't think you can find it as a 'page'.   What you can do is create an index page with ASP or PHP that presents the directory listing and style that.

right. but there are times when i would like to show that directory listing to other people. I was making some custom error pages using the cpanel, and wondered if there were some way to at least get a logo in there..

Thanks!

Clearly there is since some people do it.  But if there is a 'page' for that, I don't know where to look.  Here's a way of doing it using .htaccess: http://www.linickx.com/343/css-styling-apache-directory-listings  And this appears to be an Apache page about it: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/mod_autoindex.html

Yeah, this is really more about styling the page. (I think(?)) I did find a pretty nice solution for that here too.

I'm really more interested in setting up the default. I have the super file synchronizer linked to this directory, so any file in there gets transported and deleted about once ever 5 minutes. Having an index.php file there isn't really feasible..

Thanks!
