Allow HTML Pages in the BitPit

An Idea

Allow HTML pages to be viewed if uploaded directly to the BitPit

Simple enough - as it is, the MIME type (in the .htaccess file) is set to disallow HTML files (I.E. they are downloaded instead of rendered by the browser). Changing this would be lovely, and would allow users to upload HTML files without needing any other hosting service.

    > **Posted by Logan Dougall** > Not many people know how to use iframes or object code already; however, the escape trick is available in the FAQ on the menu whereas embedding is not. Well, not many people use the bitpit, should we remove it then? This idea would be mostly for people that use the bitpit a lot (meaning they already know something about html) and making their lives easier.

    Not many people know how to use iframes or object code already (plenty of threads asking about embedding youtube...); however, the escape trick is available in the FAQ on the menu whereas embedding is not.

Still not many people know the \ trick, + embedding your own web page takes away the need to adapt to the rules of the banana, with a little help from the bitpit it could get even better

    You guys make a large argument from my little sentence :<
