Re: HELP!!!

There are different types of portal the ones mainly used are html or flash itself. They are basically a group of web pages created in html that link to the flash files on the psp.

You can use a simple text editor such as notepad built in to windows to create them. It would be usefull to know about html, javascript and flash to make a better portal however this is not nesecarry.

If you use a program like dreamweaver (there should be a 30 day trial) then you may find it easier.

Re: HELP!!!

Try having a look at this it shows all basic html you would need to make a portal. When linking the games you simply add a link to them. If you open a portal you already have in notepad then you will see what you aim to achieve (dont open the zip open the html pages home will most likely be called index.html)

Re: HELP!!!

To write a link, the code is:

<a href="link to the game here">Text you want to be displayed</a>

Re: HELP!!!

No worries - let us know how you get on / if you need any more help.

Worth mentioning that we're in the process of making a nice spangly home page portal thing for your PSP, that you can configure through this website without any coding knowledge. It's been in production for ages and has kind of ground to a halt recently, but if Jake and me can get our asses moving, it'll be done soon hopefully smile

Re: HELP!!!

I might sound a little stupid here, but if there is such thing, can you tell me the code for adding .SWF files onto your flash portals. I know how to add links now, but I have alot of games that are .SWF files, and I would love to add them to my new flash portal. If you know of any way, please let me know!

Re: HELP!!!

Its the same as any other link except you have .swf at the end. For example if you have a game called pong in the common folder on the psp the link would be something like

Code:

<a href="file:/PSP/COMMON/pong.swf">Pong</a>

Re: HELP!!!

Is There a way that you can divide a picture with more than one pic (like Games, Applications Downloads, etc..) and make each section link into different HTMLs or different Sites? If there is, please let me know, because my flash portal is off to a great start, and i think it would just be better, if I added that.

Re: HELP!!!

You can use image maps to specify areas of an image to be links, see a tutorial here.
It's usually considered better website design to use separate images though, but I guess it depends what kind of page you're making!

Re: HELP!!!

The problem with a portal is it will most likely contain copyright material so we could not host it however you could try hosting it elsewhere and providing a link in the forums.
