Removing NULL Web Site Links RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was using the addin Whiist to insert new links on my WHS page.  However, there is a bug with the app where it sometimes creates NULL links.  Within WHS, where are the ASP pages stored so I can edit and manually remove these links?  I know it is just aesthetics but it bothers me like that.  Thanks.

  • Hi,

    That's a new one, (to me). It would be worthwhile asking on the Whiist forum, as Andrew (the writer) monitors the forums.
    Also, you do have the latest version?

    Seems like it is a known issue.  Any idea where .xml would be stored?  I believe I attempted a file search without luck.

  • You can manually delete those links.  First access your server by remote desktop.  Then open Windows Explorer.  Open your Inetpub folder in your C: drive.  You should see the default folders for both 'Home' and "Remote'.  If you open either one, such as 'Home" which is your default page when you surf to your server via internet; for example: http://*.homeserver.com/home/default.aspx .  'Remote' will place these same links on your webpage after you login into your server.  Under both folders is a file named: websites.xml.  Open with Notepad; You should see a file structure like such:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <WebSites default="Windows Home Server Home Page">
      <WebSite name="Link #1" uri="/Public" imageUrl="/home/icons/Public Photos.ico" absolute="false" />
      <WebSite name="Link #2" uri="/Public" imageUrl="/home/icons/*.ico" absolute="false" />
      <WebSite name="Link #3" uri="/Public" imageUrl="/home/icons/*.ico" absolute="false" />
      <WebSite name="Link #4" uri="/Public" imageUrl="/home/icons/*.ico" absolute="false" />
      <WebSite name="uTorrent" uri="/*" imageUrl="/home/icons/*.ico" absolute="false" />
      <WebSite name="Web Guide" uri="/*" imageUrl="/home/icons/*.ico" absolute="false" />
      <WebSite name="TV Manager" uri="/*" imageUrl="/home/icons/*.ico" absolute="false" />
    </WebSites>

    You can then manually delete each <WebSite /> that is no longer available.  Then save your file.  You can do the same thing in the 'Remote' folder if those links are no longer available also.

    Hope this helps.
