View Full Version : When no "index.htm" "description" field
03-27-2000, 07:31 PM
I find useful the directory listing produced by the Apache Server when no index file is available in such directory, but it would be even better if I could use the "description" field in the listing.[nbsp][nbsp]Any suggestion on how to fill this field with any text? (to give a brief description there of what the file does)

You can add the following line to an .htaccess file to pull the <TITLE> tags from the HTML pages:
</font><font face="Courier" size="3">
</font><font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">

I have tested this and it works. You can do a lot more, including manually adding file descriptions using AddDescription.
Hope this helps.
