Hello James,

We doubt that google blogger allows you to upload javascript files on your account.

When the online website builder you are using does not let you upload any files or folders that you like to your online account, a major limitation is imposed to you for using javascript files (like our libraries or any other 3rd-party libraries) on your website.

However, there is a way to use your Likno compiled projects on your website provided that you have access to any other hosting environment that allows files to be uploaded and served (hotlinked) from there.

How this works:

1. Provided that you do have access to an alternative online host that can host and serve files/folders (allowing "hotlinking"), you can simply upload the compiled files and folder there:

For example, after you compile an "AllWebMenus" project, the following compiled folder is created (at the location you specified at "Project Properties").

This folder contains the compiled files.

Therefore, you upload those files and folder somewhere on your alternative hosting account (that should allow "public access" and "hotlinking" of these files).

2. The second step is to update the "src" parameter of the "Linking Code" that you added to your pages, so that it points to the compiled file (.js file) that is now located at the alternative host (using an absolute external URL, starting with "http").

For example, this is a change you should make (for the "Likno Web Accordion Builder", but the same applies to AllWebMenus):

FROM:

<!-- ******** BEGIN LIKNO WEB ACCORDION CODE FOR accordion_example_external_javascripts ******** -->
<script type="text/javascript">var lwacLinkedBy="LiknoWebAccordion [1]",lwacName="accordion_example_external_javascripts",lwacBN="116";</script><script charset="UTF-8" src="likno-scripts/accordion_example_external_javascripts.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<!-- ******** END LIKNO WEB ACCORDION CODE FOR accordion_example_external_javascripts ******** -->

TO:

<!-- ******** BEGIN LIKNO WEB ACCORDION CODE FOR accordion_example_external_javascripts ******** -->
<script type="text/javascript">var lwacLinkedBy="LiknoWebAccordion [1]",lwacName="accordion_example_external_javascripts",lwacBN="116";</script><script charset="UTF-8" src="http://www.alternativehost/youraccount/likno-scripts/accordion_example_external_javascripts.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<!-- ******** END LIKNO WEB ACCORDION CODE FOR accordion_example_external_javascripts ******** -->

We are aware that this solution requires that you have access to an alternative host (while you already host your website somewhere else, but with file limitations) which you may not have. However, this is the only way to be able to run javascript files (like our libraries or any other 3rd-party libraries) on your website, since the online builder tool you are using imposes limitations on uploading such files on your website's file structure.
