Sharing A Common Library With Multiple WiredContact Sites ideal for Franchise or Law firms etc


With multiple WiredContact sites running on the server, the need may arise to share a common Library across multiple WiredContact sites.  This can be done rather easily with some minor modifications as described below.

To create a central Library for two WiredContact sites, follow these steps. Modify the Library.html file in each site's folder.

  1. Designate the primary physical location for the Library. For this example, let's use c:/inetpub/wiredx3/library as the primary physical location. 
  2. Edit the "Library.html" template from WiredContact site#2. This template will contain a tag that looks like: <#LIBRARY WIDTH=100% BORDER=1>
  3. The tag needs to me modified to include the location of the main library as follows: <#LIBRARY WIDTH=100% BORDER=1 lpath="c:\inetpub\wiredx3\library" lvpath=library>. Lpath= is the physical location of the common Library folder. Lvpath= is the name of the IIS virtual folder.
  4. After you save the template with the new tag above, users in WiredContact site#2 will be able to attach documents from the main library in WiredContact site#1.

WiredContact can also centralize personal library information for the users.  Building on the steps above, centralizing personal library information is completed as follows:

  1. Edit the Library.html template from WiredContact site#2.  Building on the steps above, the tag in this template will look like this: <#LIBRARY WIDTH=100% BORDER=1 lpath="c:\inetpub\wiredx3\library" lvpath=library>. 
  2. The tag needs to me modified to include the location of the central personal library folders.  The information that needs to be added is: prootpath="c:\inetpub\wiredx3\private" pvpath=private. Prootpath= is the physical path to the shared physical folder. Pvpath= is the name of the IIS virtual folder.
  3. It is important to include a semi-colon (;) in between the main library and personal library commands, so that the resulting tag will look like this: <#LIBRARY WIDTH=100% BORDER=1 lpath="c:\inetpub\wiredx3\library" lvpath=library; prootpath="c:\inetpub\wiredx3\private" pvpath=private>

After you save the template with the new tag above, centralized WiredContact library information can be accessed by users across multiple WiredContact sites.
