I have a bunch of static html pages in a folder I want to link to from within my site.

They are in the base directory as:

/myfolder/content/[lots of htm pages here]

However, when I go to these pages it redirects to the login page for DNN.  I want to grant anonymous access to the files.... and have no login. 

How do I do this? Thanks.

which base directory (system or portal)?

Does it work when you put the html in some subfolder of your portal root (eg /Portals/0/myfolder...) and allow Everyone to read that folder?

Does it work when you try displaying the htm pages inside an iframe?

Happy DNNing!

I moved the folder out of the DNN directory and created a virtual directory to it.

It still inherited the DNN web.config though... which I think was causing the redirect to the login.

Adding Everyone with read access to the folder fixed my problem though! Thanks.
