Sorry for any confusion if we are not communicating this issue
clearly, let me try again.
We are using several actions on our Design Center pages and one of
them seems to requires a “Prototype” and “Scriptaculous” java
script. It appears the “Prototype” and “Scriptaculous” scripts that
we are manually uploading and linking to for our third party
“Lightview” feature also runs the Freeway Action features on those
pages. Please note that the “Prototype” and “Scriptaculous” java
scripts that we are using seem to be the absolute latest and are
totally necessary if Lightview is to work on IE6,7 and 8.
Not Clear On The Following: We don’t consider ourselves web Guru’s
by any means, just require a little clarification so we can be
confident we are implementing things correctly.
-By linking a page to “Prototype” and “Scriptaculous” Java scripts
does it satisfy the needs of any functionality on that page
requiring these scripts?
It depends, in the case of Lightview, as you rightly point out, it
requires the latest ones. It may be that the latest versions change
the way some things work breaking the functionality that’s in Freeway.
this is what I meant by we will need to run some tests on them before
we can change the versions being used in the Actions.
-Any time we are using an action that uploads “Prototype” and
“Scriptaculous” are these scripts all the same. Meaning are they
like mini applications just different version?
Yes, they are the same but different versions (so potentially doing
-If the above is correct then it seems the Design Center pages
should run fine by outputting the HTML page with the links to the
newer “Prototype” and “Scriptaculous” scripts found in a “js” folder
manually uploaded and deleting the links to the “Prototype” and
“Scriptaculous” scripts that Freeway uploaded in the resources folder.
Possibly, but possibly not. A new version will do things differently
and may cause problems.
-Would love to do it all the other way around as Walt suggested just
that our “Lightview” features require later versions than Freeway is
uploading. If we do have to do things as I have outlined above are
the Freeway features I am installing on my pages via Actions going
to be OK running on the newer versions “Prototype” and
“Scriptaculous” that we have manually uploaded and linked to?
We won’t know until we test them unfortunately. I’d love to say yes
but don’t want to commit to it until we try it out.
-Also, is there a simpler, more “Freeway approach” to all of this,
as we need to be using the newer scripts?
Not until we can take a look at the Actions and make them use the up
to date library versions.
Thank You As Always, Team SDA (Dave)
