Carousel Images Preview in Wrong Spot

Hi, gang.

I’ve been having a lot of fun with Walt’s Carousel script over the weekend. It’s been a blast and the instructions are thorough.

My problem is that I’ve done one Carousel set on one part of my home page, but the second Carousel set always seems to have the main image panes move off to the side when I preview them.

In other words, the first Carousel I did works great. But the second set – even though I’m following the exact same instructions – seems to move the images to the right when I preview them so they’re falling on top of my “forward” button.

Any thoughts on what’s causing this?

Can you post this somewhere for debugging?

Just an aside here Walter

This is an example of the “Missing Initial Thread, Double Reply” phenomenon that was mentioned last week. Viewed on the Web Interface.

I have seen it quite a few times - just waiting for a new example to pop up.

I think I see a pattern here. This reply was posted from my iPhone using Mail. The fact that it was in that in-box at all means that it was very recent, since my desktop mac sweeps all Freeway mail to a separate box every 5 minutes. So either there’s something odd about MobileMail, or it’s just a race condition. I will investigate further.

Hi, Walter –

I don’t have an FTP server or anything like that, so I can’t post it. But it’s only a 6 meg file, so could I e-mail it to you?

Thanks,
Jamie

All I meant was publish the failing site to a Web server somewhere so
we can see it (I will run it in Firebug in Firefox). I don’t need the
Freeway file to figure out what’s going wrong here.

I’ll be darned, Walter. All this time I thought you were a Brit. Lo and behold, it turns out you’re a Yank, just like me.

I appreciate your help.

If the only way to de-bug it is to upload it, I can do that, but it means my visitors will be seeing a homepage that’s not working. That’s not the end of the world. I don’t have an alternative web server that I can use, so I’d have to upload it to the regular web server.

If that’s my only alternative, I can do it. Just let me know.

Thanks,
Jamie in Atlanta

There are more of us about than you think. Although I’m the most
English-sounding American you’ll ever meet. :wink:

You could put it into a folder on the server rather than publishing
to ‘top level’ where people will see it. Then tell us the address to
the folder/page and we can see it without others being faced with
unfinished work.

In Freeway, choose Preview in Browser from the File menu. In the
browser, view source, select all, copy.

In a text editor, like BBEdit, TextMate, SubEthaEdit, basically
anything that will save a real plain text file without trying to turn
it into RTF or DOC or whatever rich format it thinks you need, paste.

Save the file as someunguessablejumble.html, and upload it to the
same web server using an FTP app. Send us the link.

That way your current page won’t need to be overwritten.

Another thought would be to make a new folder in your Web server, and
upload the new version into that folder.

Hi, Walter and Keith –

Thanks again for your help.

I’ve done as suggested and uploaded the site with a “hidden” page. It can be viewed at:

Please note, the Carousel in question (the one on the right side) isn’t live since I couldn’t fix the image problem. But once we fix the image problem, I’ll go ahead and activate the forward and backward buttons.

Thanks,
Jamie

It looks as though the grouping isn’t set correctly on the right-hand
element. First, make sure that the elements are all layers, second,
make sure that your panes are all stacked directly on top of each
other, that they all have the same dimensions, and that they are
grouped before you apply the Action to the group. After you make the
carousel, then group it with any associated controls.

Also make sure you have the very latest version of the Action installed.

Hmmmm. For the life of me, I can’t get this to work. I’ve even tried deleting everything in that section of the page and re-building from scratch.

I’ll keep working with it. Worst case scenario is that I put something else in that spot instead of a Carousel.

Either way, thanks for all your help. I’ll let you know if I figure it out.

Also, I promise I’ll stop by and donate for the action. It’s a very cool action and worth donating for.

Thanks,
Jamie
