[Pro] maximum page width

i am trying to create a photographic website and want to be parallel scroll. however even though i make the page the right size when i view it in the browser it only goes up to 16,500 pixels. The load time is all fine, i only need to fit a few more photos on it.

i am using version 5.4.1

any help would be amazing.

thanks

i am using version 5.4.1

5.4.3 is the most recent version of 5.4 - not saying that will help your problem though.

i dont think the version is the problem either. Any idea what it could be?

OK - let’s give it a try:

How did you found out that it’s exactly 16500px?

It seems to be 32767px as the limit (for V6, 5.4 I don’t have anymore).

But that’s what I would do:

  1. The page size doesn’t matter for such constructions. Make page size eg. 1000px

  2. change to doc-setup → pasteboard-width and set there 32768px.

The key is now to set all the items to the right (even off canvas) which automatically enforces the browser to have the bottom side-scroll bar.

Just tested it and it seems to be at least way more than the 16500px - I guess :slight_smile: 32767px.

Cheers

So I have only one question:

Why tables? (which has a width of 16385px btw)

Cheers

hey, sorry for my ignorance but what do you mean by ‘why tables?’

this may be what i have done wrong?

hmm - now let me say it that way:

The only thing I (or better we) can do is to have a quick look at the source code of an example. This is giving a certain stat - in your example the following:

http://www.evernote.com/shard/s246/sh/05bc1527-917c-412f-89d3-dda7b4ab7ccf/f291a9f8137fd5ec40390760c92a668c

Now why is Freeway sometimes setting “tables” without knowledge of the author?

I personally know two major issues:

  1. Placing items with css-button turned-off. (The items are usually then blue outlined.

  2. Some inspector settings (especially versions older 5.5) are causing this as well. Examples here: “Graphic effects” such as rounded-corner, shadows or other fancy stuff - mostly for cross-browser compatibility reasons.

However - I think it is part of the problem but I am not the expert to judge if a table in Freeway can exceed 16375px or not and even if, how to set.

DeltaDave is much better in such things so I hope he can clarify this (but as far as I know, he’s currently very busy).

Cheers

ok, thank you for your help.

i have been placing items with the CSS button turned off. i will give this a go and see what happens.

i have not put any inspector effects on the items so i dont think its that.

do you know of any other ways too change the table settings?

thanks again.

CSS Layout on and set your pasteboard width to whatever

http://www.deltadesign.co/very-wide-page.html

45 of your images - approx 22500px wide

But seriously why would you want to?

Admittedly this is 5.6.5 but it shouldn’t make a difference.

I would prefer to see it done this way http://www.deltadesign.co/fw_examples/slider.html

I just cant see the value of scrolling excessively sideways but that might just be me.

hello,

still can’t seem to get this to work. i have tried to do it with CSS on and pasteboard set to 25000px and its still cutting it off.

here is a screen grab to show where it cutting it at 16385px
http://ynoted-junction.tumblr.com/image/55429215896

i saw the slider example that delta dave suggested. but i could not open it in freeway because i dont have that version.

I would like to have a page where you can scroll trough. it is a nice way to see pictures next to one another.

any other thoughts on how to make this work would be much appreciated.

A screen grab really doesn’t tell us anything about your page construction.

A link to an online example allows us to read your code and determine how it is put together.

As an alternative - have you looked Walter’s Carousel action http://actionsforge.com/actions/view/15-carousel

And if you’re going to do something this wide, you may want to consider the ScriptyFader instead, as it will speed up your page loading. Each of the elements in the effect area are saved into a separate file, and only loaded when requested, not at initial page load. tens of thousands of pixels image width makes for a very chunky file-size page, no matter how mercilessly you compress those images.

i did think about using the carousel action but is not quite what i was after.

i will look into the SciptyFade but at the moment i cant get the right about of images on the page.

If you use ScriptyFader, there’s no restriction on the number of images you can add to the page. You can add them anywhere – stacked on top of one another in the space above the page (on the pasteboard) is a popular spot.

What width are you setting your Page to?

In my example the FW page width is actually only 960px but because the images are CSS positioned (layered) items the ‘Page’ grows to accommodate them.

I suspect that you have set a very wide page and a wide pasteboard.

Try it with a ‘normal’ width page and a wide pasteboard.
