[ANN] Documented Tutorials

As many of you know I’ve been doing FREE screen-cast’s covering various Freeway related topics. I had recently pulled all of them off FreewayCast.com to clean things up a bit. During that time I took the opportunity to rebuild and re-record them and then wrap things up by updating the title screen and copyright information.

Also during that time I found a way to create step-by-step documentation using ScreenSteps. With that all said, I’m running a trial here to see if these documented version are helping or hurting the existing video-cast’s.

So, I’ve posted a remake of my most popular video-cast of “Creating A Simple Fading Slideshow” on FreewayCast.com complete with a documentation link.

Currently I’m looking for feedback by seeing what the general populous thinks.

Remember, be nice. :slight_smile:

Hi Dan,

nice work, better dialogue too ! very handy to have both versions as the talk through is best but then you can refer to the documented version ( if you print it out ) while you work on your own project, much easier than trying to do it all on the same screen

look forward to seeing your other work

your efforts are well appreciated

Gary

nice enough ? (-:

Hi Dan; did you have a tutorial about making an inline ‘box-model’
site, which utilised ‘dummy’ DIVs between the items to assist with
spacing? I can’t find that one anywhere; has it gone?

I didn’t make a documented one, but there are two video’s off my blog that built a site with ‘spacers.’ You could just use margin’s instead of making site that has div-givitis.

If you’re on the e-mail list then I don’t know if it’ll show up. If you login here, it’s in the signature bar and on the previous quote entry.

I am sure you have made a very nice tutorial if I only could see it.
But I really do not understand how to proceed in order to do so…

Arne, bewildered…

Just click the link that Dan gave; that’ll take you to his site where
there is another link to download the tutorial. You’ll need a
password, which is given on the site, right underneath the link. The
text is on dark grey on a black background and is very hard to read
(sorry Dan), so you might have missed it.

Sorry if this has been covered but I’m new to Freeway and trying to
find basic tutorials. I’ve found some from 2005 for 3.5 but don’t
want to start with something that old…

Thanks,

Kit

Don’t forget my FWTuts at http://tinyurl.com/fwtuts

You can also suggest requests and maybe people will do them or they may not even require a tutorial.

Dan,
thanks for the tutorials, this sort of detail is much appreciated.

I would have tried your fading slideshow except for several reasons (yes, this is basically a wish list):

I don’t want/need fading.

I do want/need the thumbnails to be a bit larger than usual, and to be in a vertically or horizontally scrollable box or similar (not a layer that needs CSS, but something Exp5 can do).

The larger version images to be shown by mouseover/click on a thumbnail, and open in the same window position next to (or below) thumbnails (so that users don’t have to scroll to see the large version).

I’d prefer not to use popup windows, closing a series of them can get tedious for users.

Seems to me Freeway Exp has the capability to do this sort of slideshow. Not as fancy as Flash, but simple to use without scrolling to see large images, and simple to update (eg change images) for newbies who can’t grapple with code.

I know this could be done with frames, and a thumbnail link in one frame simply loads a new page in another containing a larger image. But lots of images means lots of pages, and it seems a bit crude, and tedious to build. I would have thought by now there is a more elegant, and simple, way to do it with actions, without resorting to add-ons like Flash.

I tried frames and Find Target/Target Groups, couldn’t work it out (see my post re Find Targets in FreewayTalk 14 May).

Regards, Ken
