Hi,

I am sure you have heard "I can't get it to work" before and I have read and tried following instructions which seems so simple. I can not get the window to pop up on site (Localhost folder) named EZorb2013a. Clicking on Preview works great. I am ready to purchase this program but can not get it to work in my site.
I am using NetObject Fusion 12 with Windows8 64 Pro.

For testing I have Local Published with one link image on index.html page linked to a page named "heel_spurs.html"located in html file folder.

Preview:
The "heel_spur" page will Glide in as set up. Works great.

When I run index.html using FireFox and click on image link, the heel_spur page just opens as normal page. No Modal Page is displayed.

Questions:
1.0   In the index.html page there is no code pasted.
2.0  How does the "<a href="#" target="ezorbModal_Window_1">link</a>" come into play? Should it not be pasted somewhere? 

Thanks,
Larry

Dear Larry,

I am not sure if I understand the problem 100%, but I will try to give you a general idea on how Modal Windows work.

Assuming that the test-case is to open click a link in a page and open another page in a modal window, you need to:

1) Put the Linking Code in the parent page

2) Make sure that the link that should open the other page has the correct “trigger code”

There are many ways to trigger a modal window. One example is the code you asked about:

<a href="#" target="ezorbModal_Window_1">link</a>

This code will open the modal window named “ezorbModal_Window_1” (as long as you have such a modal window in your project and it is Linked to the page).

Hi Kostas,

All I want to do is click on an image icon located on Home Page that is link to another page (heel_spurs.html) to open in a modal window. 
I now have been able to get only the (close button) to be displayed after switching from External to Element. I understand what the program is supposed to do but I guess not setting it up correctly. I will have about a hundred of these images when click on will open associated modal window. I want the Home page to look like Windows8 page. So what method do your recommend to accomplish this? As mentioned below I am using NetObject Fusion 13 to generate the code on the html pages.
Thank you,
Larry

Dear Larry,

If you are going to use multiple links in your page that open the same window with different content, then I recommend that you use the “Make certain links/forms in page open in this window” population option:

make certain links/forms in page open the modal window

Then in your page, you need to add links like:

<a href="./html/heel_spurs.html" target="ezorbModal_Window_1_single">…</a>

This way you have a single modal window and you just load different content in it each time.

If you also need to load in the modal window content that is within the parent page, for example the following div:

<div id="mycontent">hello</div>

Then you need a link like this:

<a href="#mycontent" target="ezorbModal_Window_1_single">…</a>

(so basically instead of a real link you need to use a hash and then the element id)

I have tried numerous ways to get the pale blue of the menu to display as white.  It is white in the preview pane in the software.
The blue though similar to the background is not the same hex code.  I would appreciate a quick response as I have wasted 2 hours on this and must show it to someone in a few hours.
Thanks,
Linda

Dear Linda,

This is caused by the following code in your page, which forces all <td> elements (including those of the menu) to have this background color:

All worked fine and I can see the menu in various browsers but when I open Dreamweaver to work on files the menu is not being displayed.  What can I do to see it in dreamweaver?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

The menu will be visible in the “live preview” of Dreamweaver. Unfortunately the standard preview does not support complex JavaScript components, so it cannot show the menu.

HI Guys,
A couple of things.When you open Web scroller, it would be great if you could see the last projects you were working on, like Adobe does.When working on a slideshow it would be great if you could see the current item. Having the slide show showing is great but if you've got a large complicated project you want to see what the current slide looks like.

Dear Colin,

Thank you for your feedback.

Regarding the recent projects, you should be able to access these through the "Project" menu:

recent scroller projects

Regarding the selected item, the preview should always start with the “current” item in view:

preview current slider item

Does this not happen in your case? Or did you maybe mean something else?

Kostas

Initial Email Subject: Menu does not appear on preview pages
Support Case Month: February 2013

I use SiteSpinner Pro to build my webpages. I cannot get my menu to show up on my project pages in preview mode. Of course this should show me what my published page will look like.

If I "publish to disk" and compile to that page, then open the local page with "HTML Kit" everything looks fine, the menu is placed and operational. If I try to open the preview pages in the editor I get a script error popup that says "The value of the property 'awmBuildMenu' is null or undefined, not a function object."
If I try to compile to the preview page nothing happens.

What suggestions do you have to allow me to see a finished page before I move it to my website?

Thanks

Hello,

I am afraid that the preview of SiteSpinner (as well as that of most web builders) does not support complex JavaScript components.

In Dreamweaver or Expression Web there is an option of “live preview” (or “SuperPreview” or something like that in EW) which does fully support JavaScript. I do not know if SiteSpinner has a similar option, but if it does, then the menu should work there.
