    Question Answer: How would I write my own download?

    In other words... I want to write an article and have someone click on that article and download it to their computer. How does that happen?

    It may seem like a simple answer.. but I really don't know how to do that so how does that work. Does anyone reading this know and can help me understand this?
    thanks...

    What is a .mac file? That may seem silly but I really don't know. I use appleworks to create my documents...I have Quark also. I am not familiar with version tracker but I will look into that. I am unaware of "mac update" too.

    Bottom line is that I would like to learn how to take my own documents and make it so others can download them.

    Please advise. I am still at a loss... thanks

    there is no such thing as a .mac file. What i ment was when you make a .mac home page to set up a file sharing site.

    I use Dreamweaver when I create pages for my websites...All I want to do is learn how to create a download file so I can put it on my website and others download my information. Thanks

    If you have a website already all you need to do is upload the files to your server and create a link to the files

    yes, for example, its called article.doc

    Upload the file onto your site, then make a link to yoursite.com/directory/article.doc

    a window will up asking them if they want to download it, or not.

    many people have .doc and .txt set to display in their browser, so it won't prompt them to download the file. You could compress it (.zip, .sit, .rar) and then it will prompt them to download, elsewise they need to right-click (option-click) it and choose save file.

    even if their browser is formatted to read .txt or .doc then they can always just File -> Save As
