A 93 kb html file won't download. Is it size? Is zip compression of html doc a thing here?

I'm loving BT. I am almost ready to publish, but I've got one last pesky problem.

I have an index that is fairly lengthy, making up a 93 KB html doc.

Every time I try to download it, I get the warning that "The data for this screen has not been downloaded. Check your Internet connection and try again."

I'm fairly certain some of the other pages that are working fine are even larger than this one.

Is there a file size limit? Any way to zip compress the file and have the app uncompress it as needed?

Thanks in advance for any advice or tips.

I should add, that I have already tried rebuilding the entire package, and routing it through Xcode, and I have tried going into the screen of the HTML doc and saving the items there, and I have tried the URL to the HTML doc in the browser and works lightning fast, but the app won't download it for some reason.

Hi there Doug, welcome to Buzztouch.

The error message you are seeing definately does not refer to the size of the file. That error usually means something is not found - sometimes the content, or maybe the plugin that displays your content is not in your xcode project?

Yep, I figured it might be something like that...

But the URL is entered the correctly, and it's a vanilla HTML page (nothing fancy at all), and other pages just like it display just fine.

There must be a glitch somewhere, maybe in the JSON output. I will do some tinkering.

Thanks!

Well, I just rebuilt another screen for the doc, from scratch, and it displays perfectly!

Must have been a fouled bit of code in the first one. Deleting it and renaming the 2nd one to the 1st one's name.

Well, now that the page displays, I've found one more "last issue." The page has links to MP3 audio files, and the links are valid, but the MP3's won't play. I get this error message:

IOS Error Code: -1100 IOS
Error Message: The requested URL was not found on this server.

Ah, I think I found it. Stupid Dreamweaver keeps making my absolute URLs relative everytime I reopen a file! I will do a find and replace and I think I will have it!

Thanks. I am so impressed not only with the BT platform but all the great help in the forum community.
