HTML page to replace default IIS listing when no index is present

Hi All,

Just wondering if anyone can hack up a quick page or provide me with one for the purpose.

We have an IIS server with a virtual directory setup to a file share where we will be dumping files/creating directories on a daily basis. For the purposes the default directory listing is OK (that is, what is displayed when there is no index page present; see attached screenshot) however it is not very pretty.

Is there a HTML page that will perform the same function by dynamically displaying content (i.e. files and folders on in the virtual directory) but format it a bit more pretty, some coloured font, a nice logo and make an icon of a folder next to the directories.

I have worked with HTML before and I could work out all the smaller fine details to get it looking the way I want, but if it is possible if somebody could provide some HTML code that performs this function... well that'd be swell.

That's if its possible at all.

Cheers

Seems like you'd really prefer to have a decent File Manager to help you perform these operations, which is pretty much how a web server becomes once the index/HTML pages are removed.

Try this:

I believe it'll provide you with the professional interface and versatility you're after.

Yeah that would work. I just don't want to pay money for this solution.

Any other ideas?
