Hi freeway users,

Is it possible to select an item/image and show this on a new page.

thanks for your commands

selecting the item, set a link to the “Resource” and set _blank to the link so it could be a path like:

http://www.yourdomain.com/Resources/yourimage.jpg

would be the “technical” way.

But it could be as well that you’re after a spawn new window:

http://www.actionsforge.com/projects/view/63-spawn-new-window

or even a lightbox effect (seek Actionsforge for “lightbox”) if you all of them haven’t already installed.

So it’s up to you.

Cheers

Yes - there are a couple of Actions that will do this.

Link to New Window and Pic in New Window

Can you say in more detail what you are trying to do as there may be several methods for this.

Personally I wouldn’t recommend using this method. The reason is that FW is in control of all images in the Resource folder and because of that they may well change after an alteration to the FW page.

ie yourimage.jpg becomes yourimagea.jpg

That’s in fact more than the truth my dear David.

But these a, b, c add to files is one of the reason I more and more leave the “let Freeway manage my Resources” thought (which I’d never recommend cause one should know what he is doing)

So forget the manual “technical” way - and use the built actions.

Cheers

Thanks quys for your input.
The reason I need this is following:

A customer of mine can choose a product and click on this product to apply for a sample. Then there must be opening a new page called Sample apply. This will be a form which they have to fill with their address etc. and it will be nice if we get this form with the details of the product they want. So the sample apply form is always the same and whats chance is the details of the product.

It would be great to push me in the right direction, because I can’t find this in all the lecture of Freeway.

many thanks

No need to open a new window

Create a form page with the thumbnails of the products with an optional Target Show/Hide Layer or Image to display the larger version.

Then there can be a Checkbox beside each thumb so that they can select that item (and others they want samples for), fill in the rest of the form with their address/contact details and Submit.

Only 1 page to create and manage!
