Hi I was wondering if transparent png would be causing any issues in Internet Explorer 8 and down.

Thanks,
Mike

Hello Mike,

Internet Explorer 7 and below is known for its problem with transparent png images. Actually it does not respect the transparency. According to your slider, this is not something relevant to the slight movement.

Thank you!

My question is this...  I need buttons without the white background.  Can I make them with invisible background?  I can’t find a color to exactly match the page I need the buttons for.  Please help. 

Thanks

Dear User,

Regarding creating transparent buttons, you can do this if you select the PNG file format that allows transparency:

Initial Email Subject: Difficulty placing small image on surface of my Likno Web Button
Support Case Month: December 2012

Hello,
I'm a registered Likno Web Button Maker owner (version 2.0.162).
The screenshot illustrating my problem is attached, so you can see what is occurring.  Also attached is the little image I wanted to use for the button background.
I've worked for hours just trying to set a small image as the background of my Likno Web Button.  I used PNG files, because I saw no restriction specified against using PNGs.
I started with the basic square chamfer button template.  For the purpose of showing this problem, I made the button size much bigger than any image I would apply as the 'background' during this test.  The latest image I selected was only 184x82, and my button size is set really large at 544x314.  I used the larger button size just to make my screen shot clearer for you.  I selected 'Stretch', so you could see my image hiding behind my button.
When I produce my button, it's simply blank, white -- my image isn't there.
Believe me, I read, then re-read the Help file and followed the instructions about putting an image on a button.  Following the instructions didn't yield a 'picture button', which is what I wanted.
Can you help?
Bob

Dear Bob,

I assume that what you are seeing is the actual button…

The background image is something that will appear behind the actual button and not on it. If you want something to appear on the button but behind the text, then I guess that you want to change the “Texture” in the “Button Material” tab:

button material]

Note however that this will always be stretched, so you should make sure your image has the correct size (and maybe the correct transparent padding around it if you want a small image to be centered into a larger button).

Hi,

I am, working on a sharepoint site.

seems that it wont allow any graphics, png, jpeg or otherwise.

however, the code works on the page without the graphic, I simple show a square area where the graphic should be.

I would prefer to have a simple scripted button in html, simple block, color, rollover color, I don't want it to be a graphic, it wont work...

just need a simple button, that I can navigate to another page, css simple button.

I paid for your software in hopes that it might work,  however It does not,I just need a simple css button... is this possible? can you show or send me a script? I am under a deadline and I have to have this solves asap.... now.. please help, thanks

Hello,

I am afraid that Button Maker does not produce plain CSS buttons. If you want we can probably send you some custom code for this, but I believe we should first see why the images don’t work!

Normally you should not have a problem with images, so maybe something went wrong. Can you please send me the URL of a page where the image buttons don’t work so that I can have a look?

Hi Kostas,

Thanks for getting back to me.

The problem is I am working with SharePoint Server/Designer building custom pages.

The customer/vendor I am working for has every security feature locked down in sharepoint server. So no custom code, no graphics on buttons, or activex.

The only thing I can do is create CSS Buttons with typical background colors, fonts, shapes.  Also,  it would be great if the code generated could be of inline style (Self Contained)  for each button… (I hope this makes sense?)

I really like the program,  very well done,  just in this case with everything locked down when I go to attempt to use these buttons and save with sharepoint designer.(Have to use this.. no other choice)  it strips out the button image, and function,   leaves me with an empty clear box with a working link.

Hope this is helpful,  if you could send some custom code, or update, ideas?,   I would be grateful.

Thanks

John

Dear John,

If you are forced to work in such a restricted environment, then indeed there is no way for us to work around it.

In this case you’ll need to create a CSS design yourself, with plain colors and maybe rounded borders.

An example of such buttons would be:

<style>
    .myButtons {
               
border: #000066 2px solid;
       
        border-radius: 10px;
               
background-color: #BBBBFF;
       
        color: #000066;
               
padding: 2px 5px;
       
        text-decoration: none;
          
    }

    .myButtons:hover {
                    
border-color: #0000DD;
             
        background-color: #CCCCFF;
                
    }
</style>

<a href="mypage.html" class="myButtons">Home</a>
<a href="mypage.html" class="myButtons">Products</a>
<a href="mypage.html" class="myButtons">Support</a>

Of course you will have to change the colors etc.

Hey Kostas,

I think this might work.

I am having a problem in trying to figure out how to write css code that would apply to strictly each button and or each page.( as I remember inline styles cant have any button hover functions).

The problem I am having in writing this CSS code is when placed in my page the buttons grow/shrink width wise depending on the length of the text so my buttons are never the same widths.  They absolutely have to all be the same widths and I can’t figure out how to make this happen.

Hopefully your solution will work for me.

Thanks very much

John

Dear John,

I believe you need to refresh your CSS with a bit of reading through the site I sent you. Smile

In order to force a specific width, just add the following line in your “myButtons” CSS rule:

width: 100px;

Also, as you said, inline styles cannot account for hover functions. This is why you should use “CSS classes” instead as per my example. Note that you can have multiple classes for differently styled buttons, and you only need to add:

class="myclassname"

to each of your DIVs to turn them into a button.

Initial Email Subject: Error when attempting to export jpg/png/gif in Likno Web Button Maker
Support Case Month: October 2012

I am attempting to export a button graphic (jpg/png/gif) that I have created and continue to get the following error:

Error(LT:-14) while exporting file C:\\Users\\.....\\W.jpg

This error happens for each of the formats.  I have attempted to find information relating to this error on your site, to no avail.

I have just recently installed Windows 8 Pro as my OS and this is the first time I have attempted to export a graphic from LWBM so that may be the issue.  I don't have any problem saving the file in *.wbm format.

Thank you in advance for your assistance in resolving this issue,

Kirk

Dear Kirk,

Can you please confirm that you are trying to save in a folder where you have write privileges?

It is not uncommon for users in windows 7+ to mix-up the folders and try to write something into a different user where they do not have access rights.

For example the last user had an old user named “john”:

C:\Users\john\...

And the new user was “JohnD”:

C:\Users\JohnD\...

When trying to export in “john” from his new windows 7 system, it was not working because he was logged in as “JohnD”.

Hi,

It never occurred to me that when I installed Windows 8, my user directory name was changed and, obviously, I didn’t double check the file name path in the export window.

Thank you for your quick response,

Kirk
