Page listing

The main page of the three domains has a list of the pages inside. In order for your page to appear in the list there must be a valid *info.xml file in the main directory of your webspace.

In your account you'll find a info.xml.example that must be filled in and renamed to info.xml. The same file can be downloaded here:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<!-- INSTRUCCIONS: Establece correctamente Los siguientes datos y renombra este archivo a 
     info.xml para que la página aparezca listada en la página principal del dominio. -->
	<!-- Título, debe ser un nombre corto de como mucho 30 caracteres -->
        <!-- Subtítulo, puede ser un nombre largo de unos 80 caracteres -->
        <!-- Imagen de fondo que aparecerá en el botón de la página. Debe ser de 502px x 210px.
             La imagen será modificada automáticamente para adaptarse al estilo de la página -->
	<!-- Nombre del directorio. DEBE ESTABLECERSE CORRECTAMENTE. Por ejemplo, si la
             página está accesible por, en este
             valor se debe poner "servando" sin comillas. -->
	<!-- Establecer la fecha de caducidad. Tras cumplirse esta fecha, la web
             seguirá apareciendo, pero en un listado de páginas archivadas más abajo -->

Web server write permission

The server runs under a user that belongs to the same main group that the hosting users. By default, the group doesn't have write permission, so in order to allow the web server to write somewhere you'll have to give write permission to the group manually. Wordpress makes a incorrect detection and does not allow to install or update new plugins, but it can be manually solved.
