Creating, integrating & adjusting scripts or bespoke CSS Style sheets and all within Freeway… quickly
While I was experimenting with this new system, I started to think about how to implement this system (and all the other great scripts out there) into Freeway. How to adjust the css syntax that this type of system requires and how I was going to be able to place these extra files in specific folders, and on top of all this I wanted to be able to adjust the content of these scripts or css styles quickly too… was this too much to wish for.
Well, actually it’s a quite a tall order for a program that prides it’s self on keeping all this away from the designer. But if you are like me, then this area of Freeway has been a bit of a handicap. So rather than create specific actions that can do one or another on my wish list, I decided to try and create an action set that could handle it all. I quickly realised that creating the actions was only part of the problem, I also realised I needed to come up with a working method that would allow me to do all of the above too, so…
…finally I have construct an 2 actions that handles all the different document types, and coupled with this a method of working within freeway that will allow me to arrange these new files in a folder structure that I choose.
As an example of what I mean:
Add a special css style sheet
Upload extra images into a media folder
…this probably sounds familiar to those people that have experimented with these sort of items and for those that have not then, you will soon discover that getting scripts to work, that were never designed for Freeway can be quite a headache
I have constructed a complete tutorial based on the above scenario and a completed example with the action set.
