ManiaLink: How to put it all together?

Post by Driver_X » 06 Jan 2011 18:18

I've just begun my first ManiaLink, after less than 4 hours of work I guess I'm doing well :oops:

My doubt is: How can I put all .xml files together and make a real ManiaLink?

I heard that I should upload them to a filehost but,

When I see an already online page, their links are something like this "tmtp//:", I guess that's ManiaLink's prefix so, how can I upload my .xml file to some file host website (Fileden) and get links like that? I'm really confused :?

Any help is welcome, also, I did most of my work through tutorials and I read lot of them and none talk about that...
Here are they so people won't recommend any I've already read. (Unless I didn't noticed that useful information :P )

Some TM wiki related articles
http://tutorials.mania-creative.com/manialink_build/

Also, what "Add Your Manialinks/ManiaCodes Urls" at player page does?

Thanks :lovetm

First you need to upload your xml files via ftp to some webspace. Try here it's free http://www.bplaced.net/ and you need an ftp client to upload which you can get here http://filezilla-project.org/.
Once uploaded get the url of the files and make a manialink on your player page here https://player.trackmania.com/. You will give your pages short names and these will be your manialinks that can be typed into the manialink browser.
