[Pro] Getting Hype animation working in Freeway Pro

I’m using the Insert > Markup Item in Freeway Pro to add the html code from a Hype animation into Freeway. I find I have to have the Hype files in the top level of the Freeway Pro site folder and then the Preview and view in local browser works fine. I struggled with the Hype Action and found the simple instructions to add a Markup Item was far easier.
Now the issue… I upload the Freeway site to the web hosting and no Hype animations show. I wonder if the Hype files are going to the wrong directory? Is there a preferred location?
Are users using Upload Stuff page action to upload the files, is it neccessary or should they get loaded automatically with the website uploads over FTP in Freeway Pro?
Looks good on local computer, but Hype is missing after uploading to live website. Any advice?
Thanks in advance.

Have you uploaded the published hype folder to your server into the public_html folder? If not make sure you do using an FTP client.

Hi David Owen, yes I’ve checked the file structure and the files are indeed in the public_html folder. But nothing works live on-line. Looks great in Freeway Preview or when viewed on local machine with local browsers! - Lewis

Lewis - if you can post a link to your online example we can probably tell where you are going wrong.

Hi all, I think I’ve gotten to the bottom of this and have it resolved. The Freeway Pro action, Upload Stuff, allows one to upload files to either Resources or HTML folders on a website. It doesn not allow the creation or upload of a folder/directory! Since I was uploading the Hype files … and the Hype JS was looking for a FilenameHype_Resources directory/folder, the Hype component couldn’t find the files.
I manually went into the website management tools at the hosting company, created the new directory/folder “filenamehype_resources” in/under the “public_html” directory - moved the various Hype files into it and it works!!!

Now, if I can find a way to do this easier in the future, as Upload Stuff action cannot create or move the entire filenameHype_resource folder!
Thank you everyone… and I hope this helps someone else at some point. - Lewis

Depending on your server options, you can also compress the folder, upload
it and then extract it once its on the server.

I use cyber duck also but both methods work.

Thanks again all! I downloaded and tried CyberDuck and was able to upload a folder with files in about 5 minutes of fiddling around with it. Cyberduck looks to be a good solution for getting the neccessary Hype_Resources folder in place. It would be nice to be able to do all of this from within Freeway Pro, using Upload Stuff action, but it cannot create the directory or upload folder structures. - Lewis

I suggest you read again the page at http://www.actionsworld.com/Actions/HypeSupport/usinghypesupport.php which outlines the structure you create in your FW doc to simplify/automate this upload.

"In Freeway, create a folder with the same name as the project resources folder.

Create an HTML page inside that folder and sketch an instance of the Hype Support Action on the page. Use the Action to select one of the JavaScript files in the Hype generated HTML folder

On a page in Freeway, draw out an instance of the Hype Object Action. Use the dropdown in the Action Palette to select the Hype animation you wish to use. Make sure the width and height are the same as in the animation settings in Hype

IMPORTANT: the page and the _Resources folder MUST be on the same level in your site’s directory structure."
