File Management - custom starting point


I added a custom starting point in EPiServer.config (<add showInFileManager="true" virtualName="Artsite Files" virtualPath="~/ArtSite/" bypassAccessCheck="false" indexingServiceCatalog="Web" physicalPath="C:\EPiServer\VPP\Aspen_qa\ArtSite" name="SiteArtsiteFiles" type="EPiServer.Web.Hosting.VirtualPathVersioningProvider,EPiServer" />).  Added a file (jpg) but the thumbnail has a red cross against it.  The file appears to be correct in the VPP folder through explorer but when trying to access it through a web browser (e.g. I get a 404 file not found error. Adding the same file through Globals folder works correctly.  Any suggestions?

Have you added a static filehandler for that location in web.config?

<location path="ArtSite">
			<add path="WebResource.axd" verb="GET" type="System.Web.Handlers.AssemblyResourceLoader" validate="true" />
			<add path="*" verb="*" type="EPiServer.Web.StaticFileHandler, EPiServer" validate="true" />
	<staticFile expirationTime="365:0:0" />

No.  Now I have, it is working as expected.

Many thanks.
