HTML export - needs links rather than embedding files
When you do an export to either sitebrain html or simple html, the files that are linked to end up being part of the generated web site, rather than links. This is a problem because (a) the exported site can be unnecessarily large (potentially GB or tens of GB), and (b) you might actually want the site to link to objects (such as documents) rather than maintain copies (which can become out of date, etc.). There should at least be an option to generate pages that include links rather than making copies of objects that are linked to.
Or over the intranet. The idea is maintainability in combination with sharing HUGE brains including attachments.
I see most of my requests have been served, thank you very much!!! Great job! The only suggestion remaining from my side is the ability to set the URI from where the attachments should be loaded which would be a copy of the original brain to become the source of the attached files. This way I can share my brain online and sync the files with 3rd party app, instead of having to export many GB's of attached files every time!
Here is my version (just a bit different):
I want to be able to add attachments to SiteBrain HTML exports without having to go through the copying process.
Please add an option to the export dialog to add the source URI of the root from which the attachments should be expected to be found. This way I can refresh my SiteBrain with 10000's of thoughts with all of the attachments setting the source URI of the root to the root of the where the brain folder (where the original files reside). This saves having to waist double the space and having file modifications be available without a new costly export.
Since it's a URI I should be able to set a UNC (intranet) or (S)FTP attachment source paths as well. In those cases I'll sync the files with a more efficient 3rd party application.
