Local File System - Properties: Manage the properties of a Local File System.


This view allows you to edit and define properties on a Local File System object.

File System properties
The optional title of the Local File System object.
The path to the directory in the file system where the Local File System accesses its contents.
The username for Windows share that requires login information.
The password for a Windows share that requires login information.
A space-delimited list of files that Local File System will display instead of the browsing the directory. For example, if the default document is index.html and a local directory contains a file by that name, it will be displayed instead of the default directory browse view.
Used to associate file extensions with content-types and Zope object classes. It consists of a list of mappings, one per line. Each line contains fields separated by tabs or spaces. The first field is a file extension. The second field is a content-type associated with that extension. The third field is optional and contains a Zope object class to associate with the extension. Zope object classes can be specified in one of several ways.
Associates a file's content-type with the icon used to display the file in the directory browse view. The format is similar to the type map. The first field contains a content-type. The second field contains the path of the icon object displayed for that content-type in the directory browse view. The icon can exist anywhere in the object tree, but it must be a path that can be resolved by URL traversal. The default icon is misc_/LocalFS/generic.gif. All icons in the www subdirectory of the LocalFS product are loaded into the misc_/LocalFS folder on startup.
Enabling this property causes objects in the local file system to be included in ZCatalog searches. This can cause a significant performance penalty especially when the file system contains many files or very large files. It may also incur performance penalties in other areas having nothing to do with cataloging. Enable this option only if necessary.
Controls whether the Local File System object will be displayed in the management tree and other instances of the tag.
