Additional Folder URL Parameters

When you are embedding a folder of documents, you can also add additional parameters to the embed code to make your embedded folders behave in a certain way.n Also, when you embed folders of documents a visitor can click on documents in that folder that were not created in Keep&Share (such as PDFs) and that document will instantly start downloading to their computer.

In the examples below, the link for your folder of documents will be highlighted in yellow and the added URL parameter to your folder link will be in bold.

URL Parameters

Display download link – If you have a paid account, you can use the “&dd=y” parameter that will provide a “download folder” command that download the entire folder as a ZIP file. By default, this link will not appear unless you use this parameter, even if you have a paid account.

Example:

<iframe src="http://www.keepandshare.com/doc/show.php?i=533&cat=6&ifr=y&dd=y" width="900" height="700" align="center" scrolling="yes" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Do not display folder name – By default, the name of your Folder will show when it is embedded. The “&noname=y” parameter will tell your embedded file to not display your folder name

Example:

What the code looks like:

<iframe src="http://www.keepandshare.com/doc/show.php?i=533&cat=6&ifr=y&df=n" width="900" height="700" align="center" scrolling="yes" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Show only starred files – The “&star=y” parameter will show only files that have been marked with a gold star in your embedded folder. Note: this parameter is “sticky” through a browser session, so if you want to remove its effect it you can set it to “&star=n.”

Example:

What the code looks like:

<iframe src="http://www.keepandshare.com/doc/show.php?i=533&cat=6&ifr=y&star=y" width="900" height="700" align="center" scrolling="yes" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Show files in date order – The “&date=y” parameter will list your files in your embedded folder by date and not by alphabetical order, which is the default.

Example:

What the code looks like:

<div class="light-gray">
<iframe src="http://www.keepandshare.com/doc/show.php?i=533&cat=6&ifr=y&date=y" width="900" height="700" align="center" scrolling="yes" frameborder="0"></iframe>

You can combine any of these URL parameters and add them onto the same embedded code. All you need to do is add them onto the source code for the embed frame. In the example below, we have embedded a folder that shows the files in date order, shows only starred files, and displays a download link.

Example:

What the code looks like:

<iframe src="http://www.keepandshare.com/doc/show.php?i=533&cat=6&ifr=y&date=y&star=y&noname=y" width="900" height="700" align="center" scrolling="yes" frameborder="0"></iframe>
