Hi Steve,

To be honest it wasn't quite what I had in mind. I think that there are 
better ways of doing tutorials.
The POV-Ray Links Collection has a tutorials section which includes links to 
that type of tutorial.
Indeed it would be easier for you to maintain a tutorial as a web page on a 
site where you can readily update text, fix typos and rework individual 
graphics.

Nevertheless, if you wanted to contribute a model that you've made in Wings, 
converted to a POV-Ray mesh object/include file as a standalone object in 
the collection, then that would be fine. You could also submit a Web Page 
along with the include file, documenting the mesh object, describing how you 
created it and point the reader to other resources, such as the tutorial and 
the original source file.

If you look at the 'Eye' contribution you'll see a link to 'More Details' 
next to the object name. This is just a Web Page submitted with the same 
name as the object (eye.htm). If the server finds such a page it 
automatically adds a 'More Details' hyperlink to display it. Note that all 
file names are converted to lowercase when loaded into the server, so if you 
incorporate images for use in such a Web Page then you need to use lower 
case image names in the SRC attribute of the IMG tag.

Regards,
Chris.

Hi Andrel,

Zips are a bit tricky and would require coding changes rather than just a 
configuration change. The application code currently does a number of checks 
which includes validating fie types and MIME types as well as identifying 
files that it can use as thumbnails, image links and documentation for 
display on the web site.

Technically it's possible to scan, validate and extract the contents of 
uploaded zip files, but it's not something that the application currently 
does or that'll be possible on this site in the near future.

Regards,
Chris B.

Seems easy enough to use.
