Carousel in Freeway Pro 5

Walter

Hello out there guys! How are you??

well here is an interesting one…
I have upgraded to 5 and had to make a new carousel on my website and the arrows don’t work… I tried and remade it a few times as I can do these effortlessly now that I have practice, and it will not scroll. Maybe I should upload it and you can see it

ok its uploaded

Hi Carla,
All of the carousels on that page are working with the exception of American Salon.
Cheers,

Hi Carla,

There’s no code for the Carousel on the page you linked to which leads
me to believe you have either accidentally removed the Action from the
item or not applied it at all. Check the item has the Action applied
and re-upload.

You have a stat counter before the document declaration tag on the
home page, this isn’t good, you should move it so that it is inside
the head or body tags. To do this go to the Page>Insert Markup menu
option and cut the

<!--Start of StatCounter Code--> .... <!-- End of StatCounter Code -->

code and select "Before " from the drop down menu and paste the
code back.

It’s also quite hard to see much else on your page since you have set
the code to more efficient rather than more readable. Even us folks
that can read code can’t read code like a machine (well, most of us
can’t) so if you want us to look at it could you please set the page
to more readable so we don’t have to lose our eyesight in the process
of helping :slight_smile:

Cheers,

Joe

Ok
I have reset markup for before head on each page and I checked more readable, and yes all carousels work except for the American Salon, the link I sent above…
I do not know why

Thanks for taking a look

Please check that the individual panes of that Carousel are grouped,
and that the Carousel action is applied to that group, then that the
controls which should drive that carousel are grouped with the
carousel they are meant to control.

  1. Stack panes, Group, Apply Carousel to Group.
  2. Draw controls, apply Carousel Button or Tab to each control.
  3. Select controls and Carousel and group them all together.

Walter

PS: If all else fails, run the page through the W3C validator and see
if it flags any errors. A Carousel page will validate perfectly, and
if it does not, then there might be your problem right there. The
script needs to have a good (valid) working page to attach its
behaviors to, since none of the magic is done with inline “this”
references.

Go here: http://validator.w3.org

Paste your URL (or just the source code of your page if it’s not yet
available online) and they will run it through a software “machine”
which checks every possible permutation of the code for technical
accuracy.

Out of the box, a Freeway site will always pass. You can (or Actions
can) make this less true, particularly if you start futzing around in
the various Markup options available to you. But if you stay on the
trail, Freeway will not deliver an invalid site on its own.

Ok
I tried W3C validator on

one website

http://www.davidpfendler.com

and there are 10 errors. Here is the report:
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.davidpfendler.com&charset=(detect+automatically)&doctype=Inline&group=0

Try removing the statcounter code entirely, re-publish, and see if
that fixes things for the validator. It appears as though that’s
where your heartache begins. If you find that this fixes it, look on
the statcounter site to see if there are any recommendations for
updated client-side code, or if they recommend placing the code at a
different part of your page (maybe all the way at the end, before /
html).

ok I will do that

but why did the validator say that my site was not a valid 4.0 Transitional HTML?

Because your statcounter code inserted an invalid tag, which caused
all tags that followed after that point to fail to be closed in the
same order in which they were opened. Validation is a very
technical thing – there are a million ways to be wrong, and only one
way to be right.

Yes, there certainly are validation errors.
I can see why, too: you’ve added custom markup in incorrect places.

The Statcounter code looks (a) possibly incomplete, and (b)
definitely in the wrong place. Some of the other errors relate to
this, some may be due to different hand-tweaking that’s been done.

As Walter said just now, a Freeway site that hasn’t been meddled with
will always pass. Some actions can cause validation errors,
sometimes by being used in HTML output formats that aren’t meant to
support what they do.

But user-added custom markup is generally the culprit, as it is easy
to misunderstand where or how something is supposed to be inserted,
or simply to miss part of something out.

Start by going back to your Freeeway page and removing the
Statcounter code. Then check that you have all the code, and go to
Page > HTML Markup and then put it in the "After " section. See
whether that reduces your validation errors.

Make absolutely certain that you are using the same login address,
username and password, and directory path too, as in Fetch. Check
that you don’t have the username, password and path field contents
mixed up; they aren’t in the same order in every program that does
FTP.

And double-check that your directory path is correct. This is an
easy mistake to make and a hard one to spot.
