Hi David, thank you, that is excellent though I don’t know why, when I try and download ‘upload stuff’ I just get a doc file … any advice welcome. regards Roger

probably because the upload stuff is actually a text file, try changing the .doc to .fwaction and then double click the icon and it should load into Freeway

Roger I would not call it ignorance, you just received a file type you were not expecting

I’m sure we’ve all done it, just as long as it works in the end, I only know because I tried it before and it seemed to work ok.

best wishes

Thanks David, problem solved, Gary’s advice to rename the file did it. Best Roger

Hi, After a few glitches, trial and error I got this working - Great tutorial thanks, as always though I have a question.
I’ve done a ‘trial’ page but find that this will not work on iPod touch or blackberry, prob due to the flash content.
Is there a way I can create a secondary page where mobile users are redirected to a page that they can view?
I thought ‘version redirect’ might do the trick but that action does not seem to be there on version 5
Thanks
David

In Pro - not sure about Express - there is a page action called iPhone redirect

Create your second page (with no Flash content) and choose this page to redirect to from the action palette on the Flash content page where you have applied the action
