The goal of this code eventually will be go get all other web pages within a folder and create hyperlinks to file with the name of the files. This code mostly works but puts all elements of the array on both links. I need help to separate them links to 1 per file (per element of array until all created)

Create a new web page

New-Item web.htm -Type file -force

Put default opening html tag in file

Add-Content -Path web.htm -Value '<HTML>'

Create an array to contain web hyperlinks to create

$pages = @('web1.htm', 'web2.htm')

for each item add a link with the file name to open.


for ($i = 0; $i -lt $pages.Count; $i++)
{Add-Content -Path "Web.htm" -Value "<a href=$pages[i]> $pages[i] </><br>" }

Close the html file tag

Add-Content -Path web.htm -Value '</HTML>'
New-Item web.htm -Type file -force
Add-Content -Path web.htm -Value '<HTML>'
$pages = @('web1.htm', 'web2.htm')
foreach($page in $pages)
    Add-Content -Path web.htm -Value "<a href=$page> $page</a><br />" 
Add-Content -Path web.htm -Value '</HTML>'
  • Your mistake is that there is no </a> tag. I also changed the looping mechanism to a foreach as it is easier to follow and debug. – Tony Hinkle Apr 20 '15 at 2:11

  • @JoelT you can perform all actions on your own questions. I can see you've already given this the checkmark, but you should also be able to upvote it. – Mark Henderson Apr 20 '15 at 2:47
