hi

has anyone come across a free hosting site that does not display text files?

i have at 000webhost.com and they said is for security reasons.

i used the followed steps:


Uploaded register_code.txt as normal.
and
Added the following lines to .htaccess

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule register_code\.txt$ /register_code.php [L]

and used :

<?php
header ("Content-Type: text/plain"winking smiley;
include "register_code.txt";
?>

for the register_code.php file


then i finally managed to view the files, but i only see about 40% of the contents of the texts files i uploaded

any advice

Ahem.... use the formatted code button to post code......!

Tricky. One option, I think, is to have link to a html file, and then import the .txt file into an iframe. It may work, for the reason that the server scans for files ending with a .txt extension before rendering the page. Importing it into an iframe is not the same as rendering a page. Long shot.

Else just use an html file printing the code.

Oops

when i reload the page it only displays the html code in the text files and does't display the php source code texts, then it added this text at the bottom of the page:


<!-- Hosting24 Analytics Code -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://stats.hosting24.com/count.php"></script>;
<!-- End Of Analytics Code -->

any clarification will be appreciated

I found the easiest process was to use was to create a javascript function, such as the one detailed below, and then launch this with an onclick event in the button.

Language: Javascript
<script type="text/javascript"> function openNewWindow() { newWindow=window.open("../project/library/insert.txt","","width=350,height=500"); newWindow.focus(); } </script>

well

i followed your suggestion, but i get the same results as before, this is what i tried:
Language: PHP
<script type="text/javascript"> function ViewTextFile() { newWindow=window.open("register_code.txt","","width=350,height=500"); newWindow.focus(); } </script>   and used the button with an onclick event "onclick='ViewTextFile()'

I suggested an <iframe>.... but no guarantees.
