Inserting Wasp

After publishing your project to a folder on your PC, you will notice a number of files in the output folder including:

- example.flv
- example.html
- example_code.html
- wasp.swf
- was.js
- waspConfigs.xml*
- some_post_image.jpg*

* These files may or may not be output depending on the options you've selected.

In order for Wasp to work properly, all of these files should be uploaded to your "media" folder (aka "Destination URL") on your web server.

NOTE: If you are not using the "Destination URL" option, these files may work on your local PC and should work OK as a "pop up" window, however, if you decide to insert Wasp into an existing page on your site, Wasp probably wont work.

Advanced users may move these files to different locations, however doing so will require editing the source code or configuration file manually.

The two HTML files Wasp Publisher outputs will "take on" the same basename as the source media file -- the only difference being their extensions.

The "target" HTML file

The first HTML file is referred to as the "target" file and is used by Wasp for two important tasks:

1. For pop-up or pop-out pages
Used as to display Wasp in a separate "pop-up" window and for when the full screen button is clicked and the user does not have the latest Flash plugin or If you've explicitly set the fullscreen mode (wm) to use a pop-out page.

2. For the target of a "share"
If you've enabled the share button, this page will be where the URL contained in the share code points to.

NOTE: Wasp will assume that this target HTML file is located in the same folder as the source video, therefore, only the filename is required in the configuration options -- not a full URL .

Wasp Publisher automatically handles setting up this option, you do not have to worry about it unless you are an advanced Wimpyite.




The "code" HTML file

The second HTML file is referred to as the "code" page. It includes the word "_code" in it so you can differentiate between the two HTML files that Wasp Publisher creates.

If you open this file with a browser, you will find a rather generic HTML page with a bunch of fields that contain snippets of HTML code that you can use on other pages throughout your site.

To use Wasp in your site, or insert Wasp into an existing page, simply copy and paste the code out of one of the first three fields. Each field should be pretty self -explanatory.

To utilize the Javascript features of Wasp, use the code that is available within the remaining fields. Each field should be pretty self-explanatory.

This "code" page is not required to be uploaded to your "Destination URL" -- but rather it exists to simply provide you with a 'hard copy" of the code needed to use Wasp throughout your web site.
