When I publish a (mobile iPhone) prototype to the local file system and run it directly from the folder using a desktop browser, it includes the device chrome just like when I run it from within Indigo. If I move the files to a web server and browse it, there's no device chrome only a shadow effect at the bottom. When viewed from a device, I certainly don't want the device chrome to show, but is there a way to display it when the prototype is viewed (via http) from a desktop browser?
What web-server are you using? I am trying it on Dropbox/Public folder and it seems to be working fine. Try this link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1047885/myMoney/Index.html
What I then did was share it to a folder called myMoney. The folder structure generated should look like this:
I then moved the parent folder to the public area of Dropbox (in my case), and generated a public link to the index.html file. You may or may not have an assets folder if there are no images. More on sharing on your servers like Dropbox here.
Is this what you tried?
I published to a folder I moved the entire folder content first to a web site running on Microsoft Azure, then to a local IIS server running locally on Windows 8.1. Again, if a go to the same folder published to the local IIS and just click index.htm, everything displays fine. It's only when I use the URL to reference the prototype.
Your link runs fine and I have all the folders and file you mentioned in the published folder of the web server. It has the shadow effect of device chrome but not the device chrome itself. I have tried it across IE, Chrome, and Safari with the same results.
Okay I think I may have found the issue. The device chrome is an svg file, which isn't a known IIS mime type. I will need to add that mime type to the web server.
:) you beat me to it.
