What are Google Drive websites?
If you have a project with a dedicated folder in Google Drive, you can create a website displaying your files in the form of a blog, dashboard, or digital asset store using Overdrive. Overdrive helps people make appealing workspaces and websites, transforming boring Google Drive folders into stylish websites that host your files.
How to get started
The good news about Google Drive websites is that you don’t have to be a tech wizard to make them a reality. Anyone can make one!
To create your Overdrive website, start by selecting your designated folder in Google Drive. Note: all of your subfolders within your main Google Drive folder will act as menu items on your website, so take some time getting your subfolders organised in a way you’d like a drop-down menu to appear.
Right-click the folder and select the ‘open with’ option. If you don’t already have Overdrive installed, click ‘Connect more Apps’ and type in ‘overdrive.io’ into the search bar. Then, simply press connect. You will then see a pop up stating that Overdrive was connected to Google Drive. Next, Click ‘ok’.
Once you’ve completed the above instructions, go back into your selected Google Drive folder. Right-click the folder and select ‘open with’. You will then be able to launch Overdrive – this will create a website for you within a few minutes or less using the Drive you selected and subfolders inside.
The great thing about Overdrive is that it integrates seamlessly with Google Drive. All you have to do is make sure your main folder and subfolders are organised, and Overdrive will take care of the rest, resulting in a stylish new website. This sure beats messy Google Drive folders that are overwhelming and hard to navigate.
