Subject Re: [PATCH] [FEATURE] Clickable Path Components in ftp dir header
Date Fri, 17 Oct 1997 21:52:19 GMT
If you're interested, you can have a look at a "screenshot", i.e. at the
live output of the new featured apache's ftp dir listing at

You can see the separately clickable path components, and the additional
"created by apache" footer.

I thought it would be more intuitive if one could _see_ it before trying...
Oh, I guess the server where the snapshot was taken is reachable from the
internet side as well, so perhaps you can even click (to see the difference
between the html-screenshot and real apache)!
