    [​IMG]


    Introduction-


    CDN Stands for... content delivery network

    Definition

    A content delivery network (CDN) is a system of distributed servers (network) that deliver pages and other Web content to a user, based on the geographic locations of the user, the origin of the webpage and the content delivery server.

    Requirements

    1. Starter Pack Uploaded Below
    2. either a Website or Local Host setup
    3. The knowledge that any new page you add has to be in multiples of [8] Titles/HB/Games
    4. This Guide


    DIY Store/CDN

    First off here are so Keys points you need to remember

    -1. Make sure to edit the main_app.json too for your hosting backgrounds etc

    0. Extract the WHOLE Zip to your website or server ROOT (unless you wanna include folder name in your URL)


    1. ALL titles need 2 Pics (PNGs ONLY) one for the Menu and one for the Download Page

    dimensions

    Title Pic - 122 x 125

    Download Page - 263 x270


    2. Character Limites, If you don't follow these guidelines part of your name may be cut down to follow them

    Title Menu - 20 Characters

    Download Page - 23 Characters

    Description 1-3 - 27 Characters


    3. JSON entries CANNOT be Swapped or re-ordered

    4. ALL New Page MUST contain 8 Entries at a time unless you want blank spots on your Menu Page and ALL new pages MUST be named homebrew-page[next number].json


    Step One

    In the included JSON pages

    Change these Links to your site Links or Your PCs IP if your local hosting

    TroubleShooting

    1. Your page keeps trying to load Page 1 with no success

    2. SomeThings/Everything is Blank

    Answer: your Missing Content

    3. Upon restarting the APP i get this Error

    [​IMG]

    Answer: your Missing Crucial APP Files in your Host or file Permissions are Wrong

    4. When trying to download something from my store i doesn't go past "Start" on the Download Dialog

    Answer: That means your Download is Missing/ Download link for that title is invalid please check again
