Knowledge Base support case for Likno Web Scroller Builder,  abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.

Hi Kostas,

I am pleased with the scroller that’s currently on {URL REMOVED} but need to change it from internal assets to an external xml file.

I have looked through your help section but can’t find anything that gives me any information on how to construct the xml file.

As you will see the scroller is used by an Estate Agent, so, being currently based on internal assets I have to continually amend the individual details of the frequently changing properties. I would like to automate this process, so I would guess that an xml file is the way to go.

I could perhaps arrange for an xml file to be constructed from the property database that the Estate Agent uses. The problem is that I don’t know how to write the xml file so that the scroller will display the information correctly. If I could see an example of an xml file, perhaps one that would give us a scroller that looks like the current one on the website with just 2 or 3 properties, I can then see what we need to do.

Are you able to help?

Kind regards,
Alec

Dear Alec,

I believe the best way to go would be to use the “DIVs” population method:

populate slider items through DIV elements

This way you will have the actual content inside your page, which will enhance SEO, and you can still generate it dynamically from a database.

If you go to your current project, change it to “DIVs” and go to the Sample Code tab (F4) you will see exactly what you need to add into your page for this to work.

Let me know if you need any specific help with the implementation.

Best Regards,
Kostas
