wadhost a new hosting site share me files and i will upload them for you all ports allowed

Recommended Posts

my site is a bit different then my main haruko's doom site this time i thought to make a wad hosting site using bitbucket as a base so each file you send me will go to bitbucket repo and i will put your files up on my wadhost site now you might be wondering are you ripping off wadhost fathax? well i just don't have good names in mind so this has to do i did not use the word fathax through but read the sites information that tells you whats allowed i will eventually have rules in the future what people can host if a moderator does not like what is hosted there but anyway i only have it plain white because wadhost fathax has a blank page with buttons and text before when the site was a thing its dead sadly but i'm here to bring a new era and make wadhost a at least a better place for new mods and old mods now here is the link to the website.

 

btw its still in the work in progress so i will get to adding more files soon.

Why are you trying to build something as complicated as a wad hosting site when you by you own admission lack the skills to do that really effectively?

May I make a suggestion - make an index site, not a hosting site. People are more than capable of uploading files to the various file sharing sites about the place. It's not hard. So you uploading them isn't really going to benefit you or them. But if you made a site of curated links to mods, organised by type, perhaps with your own thoughts on the mod if you have played it, then you have a site which won't be redundant, arguably more useful to people, and easier for you to maintain?

You can link to my maps here, or to the individual downloads (they are all just pointing at my Github site anyway).

 

If you want to link to your own WADs, or to WADs that others give you, I suggest you use a github account (its free). Add the WAD files there, and make links from your site to any WAD you put there.

 

I assume you can edit the source HTML of your site? Just add a link like so:

<a href="https://github.com/harukoharuhara/wads/name-of-wad.wad" title="download map">Map Name Here</a>

[I'm guessing that's actually your github site?]

 

You will obviously need to create a directory structure to upload the files into... Github is nice - you can drag and drop to upload.

Spoiler

(or if you are more tech savvy, you could use git CLI client)

 

I strongly suggest that you look at learning some basic HTML - It's really worth it and you can then do some basic stuff to make the site more interesting.

Don't forget, you can also host a website directly from your github site as well - https://pages.github.com/. This is how I manage my smeghammer site.

 

I am sure many people here can assist you with coding stuff if you ask.

 

Also, I just tried half a dozen or so of your download links - they re all protected by a bitbucket login. Many people will not want to arbitrarily provide a Google or whatever login just to download a WAD. I strongly suggest that if you want to offer a WAD hosting service, you do not put a login wall in front of the files. - Github public files will not prompt for a login.

Actually, this doesn't work at all.

-First, I had to sign with my google account.

-Next, I had to create another account.

-After that, it asked me some questions.

-Then, I had to go back to your website.

-Click on the link again

-Sign back in

@haruko haruhara, are the files uploaded to a private account by any chance?

 

As I said above, we can probably help you do this if you want some assistance with how this all works...

Go to the repository and click Settings, then Repository (under 'Permissions'). Check Enable (under 'Public Access') to allow users without a Bitbucket account to clone and browse the repository.

I can't wait until like 6 years have passed and Haruko ends up making the most popular well-endowed website for Wad sharing.

He's already got a(nother?) Github site with lots of resources. I think it's mostly custom things rather than maps:

 

https://github.com/HarukoTheDarkLord12345/r667-monsters-and-other-sources

 

@haruko haruhara - This would be a good place to extend to store maps as well. You just need to add a folder and drop map files there. I can link to it from my site as well.

The only reason why I'm using bitbucket is because they have infinite space almost but they don't have file size limits atm I'm currently using web archive for the larger files that repo I did was not finished I almost forgotten about that actually but this repo on bitbucket is much better than GitHub imo

I have never used bitbucket but I just had a quick look, and it's another git repo storage thingie. Github is the same sort of thing and also has unlimited filesize and storage AFAIK.

 

BitBucket also seems to have a static website feature, much like Github Pages (e.g. my smeghammer site). So you can probably make a website that you can style and structure as you like:  https://support.atlassian.com/bitbucket-cloud/docs/publishing-a-website-on-bitbucket-cloud/.

 

Whichever you prefer though I guess...

Thanks man! I been trying to figure out how to make a upload button leading to my upload button in bitbucket but it doesn't work any way I can make a upload button or do I need ftp for that?

Bit bucket is a source code repository service. It's not even remotely designed for what you're trying to do with it.

Probably not...

 

You want to be able to have an upload button/form on the Google site, and have that upload a file to the bitbucket host... (and perhaps automatically add a link?)

 

That will not work:

 

Google Sites is a static site host (no server-side coding capability AFAICT) so cannot perform any inter-domain actions at all. Bitbucket (a separate domain) is essentially an online Git repository host and as such, for anyone to add files to it, they will either need direct login and upload, or - and this is the primary use case - will need a command-line git push capability.

 

I suggest that the best way is that you can use your google site is to ask people to email you the WAD (or a link  to it if it is big) and then upload it to bitbucket yourself. Then add the link to it to your site. That is pretty much what I do with my smeghammer site and my github repo (which is also a git repository...). I can advise if you need further help.
