I've uploaded and inserted a small project version GGPKG into a wordpress site and have been trying to replace the tile folder (via a FTP) with a larger version higher quality image folder. I've done this process last year and was able to get it working, however now it doesn't or I'm missing something.

Both the smaller and larger GGPKG files work through the package desktop viewer without a problem.
The smaller GGPKG file uploads and is fully functional on the wordpress web site.
I upload the larger project as a zip file via a FTP and unzip the files and folders.
The GGPKG file small is 108meg and the larger is 250meg - difference being 40% vs 90% jpg compression - this being primarily a test for a larger tour.
When I swap in the larger tile folder, the web page just shows a blank window. I've tried to swap out various combinations of files and folders via FTP between the larger and smaller project but alas it still doesn't work. I thought the folder permissions may be causing an issue but it doesn't.
The Left one has the swapped tile folder.

- when i create the GGPKG from the create package button does the project need to have the HTML template switched to GGPKT.ggt? or can it be left in normal.ggt? I've been leaving it as normal.ggt.
- can I create the output files (via the output button) and then manually zip them and rename to be GGPKG file? does this work the same as the create GGPKG package button output file? (understanding the ram vs disk usage issues)
- is there anything specifically created in the GGPKG create button subfiles that ties to the specific packet's tile folder output that prevents it opening the larger swapped tiles?

thanks for your help - regards Jeffrey

Hi Jeffrey,
What you need to do is after you have uploaded the smaller package is use your FTP client to navigate to the decompressed folder on your server.
Open the folder, now replace the files from the HTML5 output on your desktop.

Thanks Hopki - so use the output generate GGPKG button for small projects only, and for larger projects use the generate output button with the HTML settings as per the video. Greatly appreciated. Regards Jeffrey
