The issue, I just found out, is with WebDav, because all of the above work with Dropbox, but non of them work with WebDav.

Is there anyway to add a home screen shortcut to a WebDav cloud client?

Thanks.

Sorry but I'm unable to help here as I don't use WebDav client.

I'm assuming that if that account be added as a file location and can be seen in the app listing it should be able to provide a shortcut.

I can get shortcut for Google Drive too.

It works as with every cloud or locale folder. If you look at my screenshots you can see some of my clouds in bookmarks, at the bottom you´ll see 4Shared wich is connected as WebDav. Im my case I open that storage in Mix, long press on the adress bar (red square), you´ll get a drop down menu, choose "add to..." and next "Home screen".
Done.

Hi, Wolfcity, thank you for taking the time to answer.

Before posting here about this particular issue in the first place, I went through all the steps you talk about (among others).
Yes, it lets you create the home screen shortcut.
The issue is that the home screen shortcut doesn't work properly, it only opens MiXplorer in its default folder.
That's the reason of my query in the first place.

Have you tried doing it yourself and then clicking that home screen link?
Does it take to where it should?
It doesn't in my case, and it does when creating home screen shortcuts from other cloud services.

Thanks.

For me it opens the Mix tab that contains the content of 4Shared. I tried the same with SMB storage and different clouds and it always opens the correct content. I don't know why it doesn't work for you. Have you set Mix to save the tabs as you want them to be when you open it?
Tap the small triangle on the upper left and "save tabs now"?

I'm beginning to wonder if this may relate to an existing but not widespread issue where user-designated default tab is not remembered.

I've done that indeed.

Could it be a specific problem with Nextcloud webdav?
That doesn't make sense to me, but since I have no idea what's going on...

@IronTechmonkey would it be possible to add an option to only show thumbnails for images? As it is now, when gojng to view-options, there is only one global option of show thumbnails or not. I don't need a thumbnail of every single file on my phone but do need one when in a folder with photos. Because there is only one setting, MiX slows down, ever so slightly, to load all the thumbnails of the dozens of files I have.

If there were an option to have two settings for thumbnails (if some users actually want thumbnails of files which you can't read anyway), one like already exists except maybe "show all thumbnails" and add another "show only photo thumbnails" or maybe the first one could be "show file thumbnails" and then the user can choose either or both.

Thanks for a pretty awesome app!

Disclaimer We have HootanParsa to thank for the MiXplorer app and development thread. I merely assembled this FAQ.

As to your suggestion: On my devices I see thumbnails (not to be confused with file-type icons) for file types for which they would be appropriate such as images and pdf, and I may not be fully understanding your suggesting but I do get the gist of it and would count as a +1 for picture-only-thumbnail setting as feature request. Note: View settings may affect how different users perceive this.

This might be worth posting in the main thread (after checking to see if it has been discussed recently). If you do I'll pop-in with a +1.
