This article is a follow up of basic information about raccoon and sort of a guide for html editing using mobile phone only. The generation we are now, there are also some people who doesn’t have access to computer or simply because they wish to do it on their phone for some reason. Recently, I am editing my Opera homepage again to update my links and layout. Editing the html on my phone made me see in an instant the actual output rather than editing it in a notepad on PC. There are computer software for this function but I am more comfortable using this method.
- On your symbian phone, using third party file manager fexplorer (any file manager will do but not the built-in file manager) rename file.html to file.html.txt – a trick to let the file manager recognize the file as txt file and not as an html file
- Make sure that the default application for txt file is “Notes” application. Here’s how to do it: Go to the txt file, click option, file, open with, file extension = TXT, Applications = Notes, then save.
- To test, click again the txt file, the file should open by Notes application. If its not, redo step 2.
- Go to Notes application, open your recently saved note, edit the file, send as MMS to any number then cancel
- Open fexplorer, click inbox, copy the file.txt and paste to other folder. Rename it to file.html
Note: You can see the out by assigning your third party browser such as Opera as the default application for html file. You can do it using step 2. Sometimes, it depends on 3rd party file manager you are using, to the step above, I suggest to use fexplorer. Tried and tested on N6630.
Why cancel the MMS? So the file will be save as txt file after editing and get the edited txt file from “inbox” of fexplorer.
