is there any way someone could show me an exaple of a typical index.html page with the animation and structure of what and where everything goes? I really hope that makes sense. I have my published folder inside my root, but thats where I get confused. My goal is to simply deploy the animation within the frame of one of my existing portfolio pages. Any help would be sooooo appreciated! Sorry for being an idiot!
What you'll want to do is put everything in your publish folder up to your server into the same folder. From there, the HTML file can be referenced and run, either on its own or embedded in another HTML file within an iframe or div. (I recommend the former.) Here's a post I made with a sample you can download that has one file embedded in a parent HTML file.
