Color coding file lists in Front page

Color coding file lists in Front page

Color coding file lists in Front page

I have a huge list of files in my web site page. Is there any way I can Color code them for quick recognition i.e. red for pages, blue for MP3 files??
I am too lazy to relocate all the relevant files into different folders as there are approx three and a half thousand in the list.  HELP

RE: Color coding file lists in Front page

You can always do it from a cmd prompt


mkdir music
move *.mp3 music
move *.wav music
mkdir images
move *.jpg images
And that's it: all your mp3s and wavs will be in a directory called music and all your jpgs will be in a directory called images.  Doing things using drag and drop isn't always easy.

RE: Color coding file lists in Front page

No - don't use the CMD prompt - I will agree it is easier - but you will loose ALL of your hyperlinks to those files if you rename them or move them outside of FP then you will have a bigger mess than if you just selected them all inside FP and drag them into a folder.
